NOOB, learning a new sport

Post by Multiracer on 3/17/2017, 5:23 pm

First topic message reminder :

Poked around a bit on the forum, started reading and came across this little gem.

Yes, all this emphasis on accuracy is necessary to score well. The best shooters will "clean" slow-fire targets occasionally, and even an average shooter can see the difference between an 8-ring gun and an X-ring gun. If your gun and ammunition can't hold the X- or 10-ring, you don't have a prayer of ever shooting a perfect slow-fire target. Even if you're not capable of shooting a perfect score, you will still score better with topnotch iron and ammo. 


Kind of disheartening right off the bat.

Well, we did an 1800, I shot 22 throughout and ended up with a 1430. 714 and a 716
I also learned more than one thing today.
Thanks James, and Thanks to the Warren Ohio Gun Club.

Way to go Ron, jump in with both feet.
That is the way to do it.
When I started about 9 years ago I was offered to be a range safety officer for the AZ. state championships just to get me used to all of what goes on in a full outdoor 2700.
Best thing i could have done.
It prepared me for my first match a couple weeks later.
The rest is history.
Hope you enjoyed yourself and now you have goals to set.
Take baby steps and master them.

Enjoy the journey;
