This is the one page diary I was using before writing the Target Shooting Journal. My improved version comes from the experience I had using this one.
I’ve been keeping my shooting stats from the first day I started shooting. Soon after, when I started to feel the addiction growing, I also started keeping a diary following the wise advise of Jean-Luc (my club’s air shooting director) and what I read in With Winning in Mind.
At the beginning I was just writting notes in a column of the spreadsheet I was using to track my stats, but it was hard to write on my mobile phone. Then I started writing a paper diary which allowed me to write more freely and to read more easily, but it was lacking structure. I downloaded a bunch of shooting journals from around the web and tried them, but they tended to be too cumbersome for me at the time.
When I decided to write my own pistol shooting diary I wanted it to:
Fit in one page
Have a simple structure with just a few sections that could encompass all that I thought mattered.
