Jack Harris storms the Euros
In a season dominated by Andy Calpin, Jack Harris has never been far behind, and with his grade average running at 97% he's proved consistency across the board. At the Midland Game Fair he pushed hard from the start to deliver a 49 ex 50 on day one, some two points clear of his nearest rivals. In very tough conditions on day 2 he extended his lead by a shot over a determined challenge by Justin Wood to finish in the lead having missed just 9 targets over the two days. To accompany his current Air Arms EV2, he also takes home the new Air Arms FTP900 as top prize.
