If it was your first, no sweat, just do better next time.

If not your first, no sweat, everybody has bad days.

Just do better next time :)

Im about 6 months in to this sport. Got a lot to learn.

Even though "shooting lousy" disappoints us, I think if it as "I need to get out and shoot more" which is a fun and good thing, isn't it? ;) Keep at it. You will get better.

One suggestion is to not hang on the barricades so much.
Move back or out a little. Shooting while touching the barricade is not how you practice, so why do that during a match?
A little change can make a big difference.

If you had a great time, then you obviously didn't shoot lousily. Fun is more important than winning.
