I post this here because it were most of the people whose opinion I respect post. Rate the skill. On a scale of 0 - 100, rate the "classes of shooters". With 0 being the ability of the typical person who has never picked up a handgun in his life (typical mind you, there are exceptions to evey rule). With 100 being the absolute best gunners (however you wanna decide the best). Rate 'em. Suggested classes are (but feel free to add your own): Nevers (never touched a gun) Weekenders (gun owner shoots a box on the weekend) Patrolman (LEO, trained, does annual qual) Patrolman+ (patrol who visits the range outside annual qual) Mil-P (military members who carry a sidearm) Mil-R (military members who carry only a rifle) Mil-Spec (military members with specialized pistol training) SWAT (LEO SWAT) Gamer-D (to GM) (from D to GM in USPSA/IPSC or whatever to Master for IDPA) Schooly (guys that attend lots of schools, nothing more) Give 'em ranges i.e Patrolman (20 - 40) if that be what you think. Share your thoughts, leave other's opinions alone (start a new thread if you think XxxxxXxxxx's opinion is bunk).
