    sure you are, that's what is great about shooting sports-everyone can have fun no matter what.

    Now if you don't know how to ski you are going to get messed up skiing with say Bode Miller.

    If you don't know how to play tennis its not much fun having Andy Roddick hit 150MPH serves at you

    and if you don't do boxing you really don't want to spar with some middleweight contender

    but you can go on a skeet field with Todd Bender (the guy who beat me for the collegiate title one year in a shootoff) or Vince Hancock (Olympic champion in 08) and shoot with them-they might run 100 targets and you only hit 18 out of 25 but you can still have a good time

    My Dad, never a man 'unstinting in praise', even gave me some unequivocal kudos for good shooting. I think he knew his health was going and that this might be our last 'outing', and he was glad it was a good one. He passed away a few years later after considerable ill-health, but I will always have that last memory of a perfect day spent shooting with the man who taught me to shoot... "Dead-eye D." as his hunting buddies called him, the man who never missed a bird.
    Sorry for your loss man. He sounds like an awesome guy. But you got some helluva memories, right?

    And that's is EXACTLY what I was talking about. It was one of those days. Never happened before and hasn't happened since.

    I didn't excel like TD did but I could hold my own amongst my peers. Still, today, my bros I hunt with freak out at some of the shots I make. So do I. But in the arena of trained, consistant shooters, I would leave my gun in the trunk. There are some AMAZING marksmen out there.

    I know absolutely nothing about silencers. School me.
    low velocity pistols no-some high vel rifles it can have some effect but I have no real expertise in silenced sniper weapons

    A few years back I almost signed up for sniper training with my drummer. But I would of had to use my vacation days and I had already bought plane tickets for my vacation elsewhere and couldn't cancel it. He went without me. Damn drummers.

    furthermore you prove you buy into the idiocy that stuff like a bayonet lug or a pistol grip makes a weapon less suitable for "private ownership" which of course proves you have no clue about how weapons work
    You won't mind if rational people don't make the leaps you do here.

    BTW, I said nothing about a baynet lug or a pistol grip. Sorry, but just making one leap after another.

    There is serious mental math in sniper training, you have to know the wind, resistance of the bullet to it, distance, and be able to place a shot within inches. Most hunters will never use anything but the crosspoint on the scope but the long distance shots reguire the hashmarks and calculation. Some people don't respect what those guys do but it is incredibly difficult.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I guess Boo is trying to deal with the fact that stuff like pistol grips are the idiotic defining reason for something being an "assault weapon"

    The Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB) (or Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act) was a subtitle of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, a federal law in the United States that included a prohibition on the manufacture for civilian use of certain semi-automatic firearms, so called "assault weapons". There was no legal definition of "assault weapons" in the U.S. prior to the law's enactment. The 10-year ban was passed by Congress on September 13, 1994, and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton the same day. The ban only applied to weapons manufactured after the date of the ban's enactment.

    (Snip)

    Assault weapon refers primarily (but not exclusively) to firearms that had been developed from earlier fully automatic firearms into semi-automatic civilian-legal versions.
