You know what I'm saying, as we've been on the same threads where I've said the same things with more explanation offered before. However, since some
may honestly not know what I'm talking about, I'll be happy to explain a bit more.
The people who sit for part of a day or an entire day shooting, tinkering, fussing over their scope and ammo and every other little thing at their
shooting station ....to see nothing better than a 5+ inch group come back on their best try ..are morons. They are people I'd be thrilled to hear sold
every firearm they have and never bought another.
These are people I see far too often and they litter the ranges some days. I've packed up my stuff and outright cut my day short before, after seeing
Bubba and Co. pull up to unload what looks like everything necessary to fight an urban battle.....to go shoot a paper target on a controlled
conservation range. (rolls eyes)
By contrast, plenty of people shoot for pure pleasure or sport and spend hours in a day, many days a month or even per week, depending on their
interests, and are anything BUT morons. The easiest way to tell for sure, in my personal experience (If both examples don't show it by basic safe
handling habits, alone) is to just pay attention to targets and how they react.
The moron will never get better than what a whole hand might cover at 50-100 yards.....or worse.
The professional or serious hobbyist will be frustrated when it requires more than a silver dollar to cover a 5+ shot grouping at 100 yards.
One shoots for dear life and hope to hit more than thin air.....while the other shoots as much or more ammo, to pick which part of the vital organ
they wish their bullet to pass through, never questioning a fatal shot delivered on the first attempt. The difference is night and day, and shows by
casual watching quickly, in most cases I've seen.
