Default Olympics

Who else is pumped for the Olympics. Hope the US dominates.

How many shooting or archery events are there?

Sleet, archery, target,

"Sleet" is a shooting sport?

Why the last Olympics , during the opening ceremonies they had a man caring our flag who was not even an American citizen . That pissed me off . Second most of the athletes are professional now . So it take all the fun out of it. There was a time when you had to be an amateur to be on the Olympic team. Now all they care about is how many gold medals the US. Can when.

So, will there be pistol shooting in this olympics? The UK banned handguns in 97. Did someone issue a waiver?

The olympics is a joke. It's become like all other sports it's about the money and not the sports.

Sad but true, imo. EVERYTHING is about money these days. You want gun rights? Your almost obligated to give to a pro 2a organization. Sigh.

Couldn't give a rat's ass less about the olympics in general. I can't wait for it to be off my TV.
