Reply To: Why do folks like benchrest competitions?
I would like to chime in here. I belong to a Bench Rest Shooting Club, North Florida Shooters Airguns. We have matches designed for folks to introduce them to shooting in competition. For example October 15, 2016 there is a match for old guns made between 1964 and 1974, pistols, rifles, standing off hand 15 yards, 24 targets 30 minutes. I will not shoot this one , Grandson getting married that day, I would use my trusty Crosman 400 with cast trigger, and dead on accurate.
There are several of these type of matches just for fun, and of course a trophy or prizes. Look us up on FaceBook, we have fun.
