A couple of years ago at a Georgia Carry meet & greet I had the opportunity to shoot a fella's Ruger Mark II open division race gun. It was fully tricked out with red dot, huge Volquartzen target grips, about a 1 lb trigger, and all sorts of counterweights and doo-dads - I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with it. I suspect the reverse is absolutely true, folks that shoot open division race guns are going to have a real tough time picking up a regular gun and performing well. They also tend to shoot very light loads so recoil will be "new" to them...

exactly. they might as well just use airsoft guns. or get rid of the bullets and just use laser beams on thier holo sighted rail guns.

you watch those guys shoot and the gun never moves except the slide going back and forth. if i didnt have to contend with recoil i could do a lot better shooting.

i just love seeing those "grandmasters" get spanked by the average joe lol

The only thing more irritating than the drama queen aspect is Captain Obvious over there saying "George hits his first target! George misses the second target! etc".

I find it somewhat interesting that many of these people come from environments where being a team player is critical to accomplish their various jobs. Suddenly they show up at this house and they whine and complain about the personalities of the other players.
"So & So said this and it really bothered me." Geez. So what. Grow a thicker skin and move on. Many of them are former or current Military or LEO in one form or another. Have they never worked/lived with people that were annoying?
Shoot more, whine less.

I had to live in my mother-in-laws basement once for two weeks. My skins bullet proof.
