    To BOSK. and. JCD,  This was the year that Austin thought of us "small fish" when he gave us the opportunity to help create a category that the less moneyed of us could learn and maybe do some good in.  I'm referring to the "Budget class". that I registered for, and won, although I never got the word that because there was only 2 of us that signed up, Austin cancelled the class.  Let's do it again next year, and get 20 or 30 people that can shoot with me.  It is lonesome trying by yourself.  Three cheers for Utah Airguns!! It will be twice as good next year, and if I'm able,  I will be there.

    I attended RMAC 2019 this year and although I didn’t compete it was OVER THE TOP EXCITING! It got me so excited again that I’ve already signed up for EBR and hope to shoot in RMAC next year. Let’s put airgun shooting on the map.

    That’s all nice and stuff, but you still don’t have the best shooters in the states or the world competing in it. Might just have to take a week off and shoot next year. Should let anyone sign up in any class, shouldn’t have to prove you’re worthy of shooting pro class or be sponsored by some company to prove you’re good enough to compete. Some of us country boys might teach y’all a thing or 2 about shooting BB guns.

    Can't tell you how much I love that statement!

    Every year there's always a few people that say "I would've won with my xyz airgun." Would've, could've, should've, but they never show up.

    The Pro Class in this years 2019 event (that had a $10,000 top prize) was open to anyone that wanted to compete as a Pro, and I believe EBR is the same. 

    There's no reason that you backyard brawlers couldn't/didn't show up to show off your skills… unless you're full of air 🤣🤔😜

    I’ve been involved in professional sport my whole working life. Competition is the one level playing field. The rules are the same for everyone. Most people who are competitive. That is because of there skill and ability to show it in a competition environment are quite humble and have a real respect for others doing the same.

    Wow …to bad us little fish dont get that type of prize just the PRo's but are we not the ones the industry is looking for to build it ?

    The big prizes lure the most talented shooters and provide incentive for individuals and companies to innovate.  The rules couldn’t been more fair, everyone has an equal chance at coming out on top.  The only thing hold you back is your bad attitude and practice.

    I totally agree…

    I remember watching an interview with Jay Leno. He was telling this story where he pumped some gas, and when he wanted to pay, the guy behind the counter said, "Oh No, it is on me!" The point Leno was trying to make, is that now that he is famous and loaded, everyone wants to give him free stuff, but where were all these people when he was broke and need it. : )

    Same here. 90% of all airgun pros are showing up already, so increasing the price money [for them] is going to do what exactly!? This is not Las Vegas. People are not going to come in flocks to see someone else win $20,000 dollars. : ).

    Do not get me wrong. Increasing the price money is a good thing, but it should be for the "regular" folks and not for the pros. Actually, both would be great. The Pros and Amateurs.

    For the pros, an event like this pays for itself and it is a great way to make "extra" money. Trust me, the price money is just the "lemon next to the pie"! Someone that has hundreds of thousands of YouTube subscribers makes "big bucks" posting a single video, mentioning a product, wearing a certain T-Shirt and so on. Some Pros even ask for people to support them through Patreon. Really!? I can see this happening when you start out, but to continue to do so after you already have a huge following is somewhat not right. But hey, that is a different story. 

    On top of that, the Pros get all the perks already. Utah airguns totally takes care of them, including letting them stay at their home (s). 

    AGAIN! THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH ALL OF THIS. I am fully aware of how Pros, Celebrities and what not are being treated. I get it. It is the high Roller that gets the Mega Suite and the Rolls Royce. But it is also him who lost $100 million dollars, ha ha. 

    The Non-pro guy has to pay for everything himself. I am sure not all of them, but 99% of them. They have to pay for a rental car, flight, hotel, food and everything else in between. Not to mention taking time off from work and not getting paid. By the time you add all this up, it is not "worth" (money wise) to come and participate in an event like this.

    Make it "worth" for the "regular" guy to come out and watch your event skip the next level and go right to the one after that, ha ha.

     

    Thanks,

    Kmd

    p.s. As always, do not forget to leave me "negative" feedback just because you do not like what I have to say. : )

    I wouldn’t assume that all of the gun virtuosos are rich. I think most of them are just super involved in the sport and are probably getting some free equipment but rich I wouldn’t bet on it. I know one who also happens to have a small business selling guns he is making a living but he is also working very hard and long hours to do so. I can’t say someone is taking advantage of the system just for pursuing the American Dream

    Totally agree with Jayson. Plus, he's a super friendly guy, and a great shot. Both he and John Tafoya were two of the best shooters at RMAC – in any class – even though they both shot Sportsman.

    As far as I know anyone can sign up for the pro class. Believe it or not many of these guys show up for fun and cover most all of the cost themselves. Winning might be most important to some where others may be more interested in the social aspects of these events. The bottom line is these are all fun events and well worth the cost to participate. Events like RMAC and EBR showcase Airguns at performance levels not found anywhere else. When we attend these events it's a great opportunity to meet new people, learn some things and support our sport.
