  • Do you, or did you ever, shoot competitively?

    New York State high-school leagues are alive and well. Over 70 upstate schools participate. Probably has some of our gun-hating politicians foaming at the mouth.

            Won my class in 2007 Iowa State Sporting Clays shoot. First event I ever entered, been all downhill since ?
            Where you several months ago when Bubba was all up in arms about a law the New York legislature was trying to pass to take shooting in high school away ? That was on the F & S site though.....

                Since I am not a gun person in the sense of hunting, maybe I do not qualify to give an answer, but since the question pertains to competition shooting.........! I have entered several archery tournaments, both locally and nationally. The national events were in White Plains, N.Y and Ludington, Michigan.

                  When we got the M-16 in '67 if we hit a target about 3' square, 20 times we were expert. I suppose the Marines had a much smaller target. BTW, the M-1 carbine out shot the M-16 by a mile.

                    I feel like I saw Bubba's post and posted a reply. Funny, I had a sense of deja vu when I posted this, so maybe that was it. Or maybe I'd posted this question before, or one like it -- I've realized that I do that from time to time, unintentionally. Early senility, I guess.

                        IF you can shoot a Colt Combat Commander Expert, you are a good shot.

                          Qualified pistol and rifle expert 1 time with the pistol only chance to go. 4 times with the rifles. Course of fire for the Marines while I was in with a M-16A2 service rifle. No optics open sights. 200 meters 10 rounds standing,10 kneeling,10 sitting. Back to 300 meters. 10 rounds kneeling. Back to 500 meters. 10 rounds prone. 12 inch bullseye at 200 and 300 man size target at 500. There’s also a ten round rapid fire in there I can’t remember if it’s at 200 or 300 meters. I used to be a good shot. Sometimes I wonder if I don’t need to build myself an AR to those specs and practice with it. We always had a side wager on range scores when we went.

                            Once upon a time, I was offered a full ride at Michigan Tech it was split between academics and competition shooting. SBRifle, and Pistol, they had an Indoor Range.
                            I like it but I don't think could go much further. It's too expensive to shoot competitively for long without sponsors or patrons.

                              Army BCT rapid fire course was 20 rounds at varying ranges from 50-500 meters, with M14s. This was at pop-up targets that were from head sized to full silhouette. You had to identify and engage your target in a limited time, don't recall how much, but it was longer at greater distances. This was in 1969.
