Bounc­ing back

Air Gunner - - YOUR LETTERS -

Hav­ing just read Char­lie Port­lock’s ar­ti­cle about men­tal health and shoot­ing, I have to say a big ‘well done’. This is some­thing that does not get talked about, and men in par­tic­u­lar seem to find it hard to dis­cuss. We seem to want get on with it on our own. I have found my­self pull away from peo­ple over af­ter a tough last 12 months, but re­cently I have started shoot­ing again to get out into some fresh air and it has helped a great deal. I would like to thank you and Char­lie for bring­ing this im­por­tant sub­ject into the open, and keep up the good work. GERAINT HUGHS

Hello Geraint As you rightly say, we men of­ten think that we have to be strong and deal with our prob­lems alone, but a bit of fun and some ex­er­cise can of­ten be good medicine, es­pe­cially in the com­pany of like- minded friends. I hope that you keep on shoot­ing your air­gun and can put the last year be­hind you. Ed.

Fresh air, some­thing pos­i­tive to fo­cus on, and a bit of ex­er­cise is ther­apy at its finest
