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.
