    A long long long time ago I competed, but haven't in years. I keep saying I want to shoot more. I am thinking competition may force me to do it. I am not overly thrilled with the ranges around here. It is not like before I moved where I just went out to the woods and shoot.

    Can I convince someone to point me to a good writeup of the different competitions? Maybe start a thread and Sticky it.


    If you want to give advice for just me....

    I have guns.

    Although I have ammo, I wouldn't mind going cheap and having a 22LR competition. Rifle and pistol. Scope of non-scope.

    I don't know, there has to be something I will look at and think it is fun. Shoot the AR, Shoot the AUG, Shoot the UZI, Shoot the Glocks.

    I am not really inclined to be running around and having complex rules. I just seem like a good way for me to hurt myself or others.

    Or where people make lots of mods to their gun just to meet the rules.

    I don't mind buying new gear, but I don't want to have to start off buying cloths, holsters.....

    I am not looking to travel to shoot. I just don't think it will happen. If I can't find something to do in Northern VA.....

    I am not a bench rest person. I shoot off the bench to sight in and work up reloads, but I don't see myself competing at bench rest.

    I have black powder guns, but I don't plan on competing with them.

    Clays were fun when done with friends, but I don't see myself investing in the equipment to do it like Obama.

    I am not setup for Wild West shooting. I don't have those guns.......yet.

    Ok shoot steel challenge - there is rifle (new) and pistol with or without optics.

    I don't know, there has to be something I will look at and think it is fun. Shoot the AR, Shoot the AUG, Shoot the UZI, Shoot the Glocks.

    Then three-gun is out - no shotgun. There is NRA high power with open sights on an AR-15. Don't know of a good place for the AUG or the UZI. You could shoot IDPA, GSSF or USPSA with the Glock.

    I am not really inclined to be running around and having complex rules. I just seem like a good way for me to hurt myself or others.

    Ok then IDPA, USPSA and USPSA 3 gun are out.

    Or where people make lots of mods to their gun just to meet the rules.

    Most sports don't REQUIRE mods to meet rules.

    I don't mind buying new gear, but I don't want to have to start off buying cloths, holsters.....

    1911 for bullseye, .22 for olympic style 25m, 50m pistol, air gun for 10m?

    I am not looking to travel to shoot. I just don't think it will happen. If I can't find something to do in Northern VA.....

    You can shoot trap, skeet or sporting clays with just about any shotgun with interchangeable choke tubes.

    I am not setup for Wild West shooting. I don't have those guns.......yet.

    Then SAS is out.

    Looks like you are left with clay sports GSSF or buying something
