    Shooting pistols (for fun, comp)?

    So I happen to live in one of the most liberal countries in europe, and here owning firearms is actually allowed, we have more per capita here than, well most other places, still low crime though, extremely low crime. I see cop cars here about once a month

    So a few guys at work shoot rifles and pistols in competitions, and they are very good, one guy is probably no 2 in the whole europe. He is fuking awesome doing this. These are ipsc type matches.

    So now I'm thinking about starting shooting guns too, I want to shoot too!

    I have to wait to start shooting semiauto rifles but guns I get too shoot right away. Wont get to actually own anything anytime soon though, but I get to shoot them. And of course If I ask my friends I can shoot their full autos (that they legally own and legally can do whatever the f they want with, pretty much) at ranges.

    So anyone else shoot guns for fun?

    What do you recommend?

    I'm just dying to kick "the good guy"s ass in pistol (and he is an instructor), because he's really cocky. But I'm dedicated and a lot more proficient in everything, I don't leave **** up for grabs.

    So the gun liberal mtbr, what do you think??

    should I join a club and kick these muddas asses?? I think so. But thats just me.
    Whats your say?

    Oh, look, the European is trying to shoot guns. Now I know how they felt when the Americans took up soccer, er...um, football.

    Why start this Mr Badass? Have you learned nothing here? Go to a gun forum for your answers, this will not go well!

    I do not shoot for fun or competition.

    I shoot to maintain proficiency.
    So many trails... so little time...

    No kidding.
    Try shooting a niche round. My 6.5 Grendel ain't cheap. But it's fun to shoot a round with virtually no droop out past 600 yards.

    Yes, that would be fun. Although any decent shot at 500-600 meters is fun. Open sights, of course.

    Being born and raised in the grand state of Kalifornication, I still cannot get used to seeing people publicly carrying weapons like I do when I am in Arizona.

I can still though fairly easily and regularly pick off milk jugs and laundry detergent jugs with iron sights at 500ish meters. In fact, that's what my long range sight is dialed in at. Very little Kentucky windage required, just good shooting technique. I can also hit soup cans more often than not at about 200 ft with my Springfield XDm Compact 9mm.

    Shooting for fun is,,,,,fun.

    I also carry for self defense, especially when I'm out in the boonies, although I prefer concealed.

    $33/box of 20. And that's for low cost Wolf. Hornady is even higher. I'm building up a reloading set up.

    I used to reload my 6.5 NORMA rouds. Check out the price for a fully loaded NORMA6.5 with Sierra Match King boat-tails and Lapua brass.

    I regarded every single shot I made with that rifle, a Savage Model 12F-Open Class, with a Weaver custom 42X scope, as a mini orbital rocket launch.

    I grew to hate reloading. My shooting friends now have all my equipment.

    If I ever shoot again, it will b out-of-the-box ammo.
    I'll resume just as soon as I hit that lotto.

    Only if its' black powder, Rocker. You 'prolly want a classic Colt revolver for that, though.

    The good news is, they have a much longer barrel (phallic significance there should be obvious,) and due to a quirk in the law, even convicted felons can own black powder guns.
    They are also quite accurate.

    It's an All-'Merican Win-Win-Win!

    You can also hang testicles from them too. Another Win!

    shooting is indeed fun! ammo has gotten a little out of hand, $ wise.

    to find what you like, go to the range and rent a bunch! i did that for my revolver and my 1911.

    If you don't get adequate fun time, you'll be ill prepared at kill time.

    Truth is Euros and Latinos kick white American ass in just about all international shooting competitions. Mexicans tend to be WAY better shot, particularly in precision rifle matches.
    The old bit about the western cowboy crack-shot is basically just that....an act.
