Popis

Detaily

How and in what age did you started with sport shooting in general and how with IPSC?
I started with IPSC four years ago after I saw online video of Eric Grauffel and guys form CZ Shooting Team. It was my first experience with this sport and I was completely exited. I had never experienced any other shooting discipline till then, so I started right with IPSC from beginning.

What do you like best about IPSC?
I like the fact, that there are no bounds during stage solving, so I can be creative and find a way I like the most. It is the spectacular sport. You have to decide fast and you can express your own personality. You can also meet lots of wonderful people in the IPSC community and have many friends among others shooters worldwide.

Why did you choose CZ?
I was undecided for a long time. I had tried different guns at shooting range, trying to find what fits me the best. It happened that I had opportunity to try Shadow one day. I just fell in love with it! It just fits in my hands perfectly and I have a great feeling shooting with it. I still have the first one, I’m still using it.
 
How and why did you join CZ Shooting team?
It actually started at Euro Extreme Open in Czech Republic. I was in squad with the guys from CZ Shooting Team and it became my goal ever since to be part of this. Finally it was that time team manager Milan Trkulja, who invited me in. From that moment we are having a great time together during our trips and competitions. The guys are very helpful and supportive and it is a huge fun to have them around.

How do you prepare for a competition?
Well, I was fitness boxing for physical training for one year for example. Unfortunately I’m not able to get to shooting range as often as I want, so I dry fire a lot. The only ritual I have is to always clean my gun before competition. I’m not superstitious at all. I think that shooting is based on your own state of mind and confidence you have in your own skills, improved by hard work and training, so I always try to push my limits.

What is a best advice you were ever given?  
“Have a faith.”
