First topic message reminder :

I'm just curious what other shooting disciplines folks either compete in or would consider competing in.  My shooting background is very eclectic, from IPSC when I was kid, to 3-position sporter air rifle and 10m air pistol in high school, to NRA Bullseye, trap, skeet, and sporting clays now.

As several disciplines seem to be declining, I wonder if there are commonalities among them and if there is potential for crossover events that would be of mutual benefit.

I'm assuming everyone here shoots NRA Bullseye, so I didn't include that as an option.  Because of the limits on potential responses, I had to group several together.  Feel free to specify in comments.

Besides the poll response, feel free to answer some of the following questions:

1. Why or why are you interested/not interested in shooting other disciplines?

2. What factors prevent you from shooting other disciplines?

3. What are some things you think shooting discipline governing bodies, local clubs and ranges, and fellow shooters could do that would influence you to consider trying other shooting disciplines?

Sporter rifle.  I could shoot it with my children.  That was the attraction.

I started out with archery at 11.   I was an instructor at 12.  I shot in the junior Olympics in Canada at 13.  Took second.  I hunted with a bow.    Then one day some one handed me a gun.  

I will be running a steel bowling pin match at the local club.  The reason I am running it is no one else will and I love the match.

I shot pins with my dad from 1987 to 1990.  I still have his 44 special.

I tell people to hold  a gun like a camera, real still and press the shutter not to disturb.    

I love 3 position weather its small bore or Military, but none to be found around here.   I cant even shoot prone at my local range.  Indoor or outdoor.

I shoot what is available.    I don't fit in with the trap crowd.   When I bought my first pistol in 1987,  the ONLY game around was indoor Bullseye and that was an hour drive.  Nothing else except hunting and trap.   Bowling pins show up at a club 45 minutes away as a weekly match,  They were mostly rifle shooters.   I moved to western NY an found a lot more Bullseye.  Some 3 position matches.  

I am not into run and gun.  Precision is my thing, rifle or pistol.

I voted skeet/trap and sc - but you left off Highpower, Service Rifle, Long Range/Palma and smallbore!
