Over the weekend a USPSA/3-Gun shooter dispatched a scumbag terrorist in a Minnesota mall. For years now I’ve heard tons and tons of arguments from people who don’t shoot competitively about why one shouldn’t shoot competitively, and these arguments continue to amuse me.
So, for this weeks episode, I thought I’d dispel a few of these terrible arguments against competitive shooting:
- Cold range – Apparently some folks think that having people stay unloaded between stages is a bad thing. It’s not. It’s a complete non issue, and one of the silliest arguments I’ve heard.
- Competition isn’t realistic because it’s not a 360* environment – Where are you practicing that you’re able to shoot 360*? Oh, that’s right, that’s just your excuse for not shooting.
- Targets don’t shoot back – Yeah, duh. Neither do the targets when you’re at a training class or anywhere else that isn’t a force on force type class.
Some Taurus executives are in hot water for allegedly selling guns to an African arms trafficker. Not good.
Unilad freaks out about r/EDC on Reddit. Can you believe Americans carry terrifying things like LOCK BACK KNIVES AND $100 BILLS? Unbelievble. What a bunch of Nancys.
