Why is /k/ so hostile against precision shooting sports?

Is it just because they spend a lot of time shooting rather then just talking about it?

Is it because its really hard and you just cant manage to not look bad when you try it?

Is it because you just don't believe in working on fundamentals or good shooting forum?

Is it because you don't have the attention span to shoot a full set?

Don't ever start the shit about .22LR not being real shooting. You come do highpower or 300m if you put as much time into training as you do running your mouth

I really want to know why you are just a bitter shit talker.

>>28856263

It's specialized to the point of not being really applicable to the real world. I don't play baseball to help me oper8 better, either, despite the fact that some of the skills being used in baseball may be useful in oper8ing.

This. Its no longer having practical applications. They shoot .22's at paper with intricate stances and devices to assist them. Too specialized like ^ said.

A gun to me is a defensive tool, and the precision shooting like in your pic is far too specialized to be practical IRL.

Precisely.
Nothing against the sport itself, but it's just not why most of us are into guns.

Because when the fuck are you ever going to find yourself in a defensive situation when you lug around a tripod that's bigger than most Asian girls and set it up, with your specialized rifle and protect yourself on mlk blvd in Oakland?

It's "good form" just for their special little sport, it has borderline no application in the real world.

I shoot skeet, as it actually has practical applications.

>>
>>28856263
As others have said much of sports shooting has become so specialised as to be of little rlevance to the rest of the world and any 'real' occasions you may have to use a gun.
Also the hostility runs both ways, of course it's by no means everyone involved, but too many sports shooters sneer at anyone who isn't at least competing at a national level, and would happily make any other type of firearm other than competition rifles illegal. Like I said it's not all, but typically the most obnoxious members of any community are the ones that make the most noticeable impression to those on the outside with little or no interest in digging deeper, super snobby elitism hardly helps attract anyone not already part of the club to take a look.
>>
>>28856263
Why the hell would your stance matter that much if you are literally resting the rifle on a flat surface?
I mean shit, it's either an air rifle or .22, it's not like it's going to recoil.

What's next, you're going to tell me shooting a rifle locked in a rifle vice is a complex challenge?

Look OP for the most part people on this board are highly ignorant of these type of competitions mostly because the member of this board are far more interested in the practical, historic, or sexual use of weapons. Basically any sport in this category besides NRA high power and the Swiss/Scandi version of high power have no application in self defense or operating. I say this as a highly successful competitive shooter.

>Is it just because they spend a lot of time shooting rather then just talking about it?

I mean most of /k/ is noguns but a lot of them spend a huge amount of time shooting and really until you get to national/development team level you aren't shooting more than the average person.

>Is it because you just don't believe in working on fundamentals or good shooting forum?

The standing position is highly stable but is literally useless if you want to move and shoot or hit moving targets. Prone and standing are fine.

>Is it because you don't have the attention span to shoot a full set?
>Set
Its a course OP. You shoot courses. I don't even have the attention span for a full course of men's airgun because it is so fucking boring.

Enviroement often restricts the postion and abilty to set up gear to the point where it's not applicable anymore, not to mention animals tend to fucking move.

If you can't shoot a stationary target without special snowflake positions and gear, you should stop hunting before you maim some poor animal because the ground was slightly uneven.

>>28856713
Yeah, and all of them have the exact same application, require specialized gear and are suitable only for light, low-power firearms.

Can you read a fucking English sentence? And absorb the meanings of words? Because you have demonstrated neither of those fundamentals.

Let's look at what these things mean

>fundamentals

Fundamentals are basic, essential skills

>assist

Assist means to

Let's see what you said

>Neat, stuff you should be learning as soon as you start seriously shooting anyways
>stuff you should be learning as soon as you start seriously shooting

Man, this seems really similar to that "fundamentals" thing.

Is a pretty pisspoor argument, considering the topic in question involves a shooting sport so specialized that much of those fundamentals are buried underneath a flood of equally specialized methods and equipment.

Olympic shooting does not translate to hunting White Tail here in the mountains of Colorado. You can act like a huffy English major all you want, but that won't change anything. Sorry, sonny.

>>28856263

Cause I rather work on run and gun. If I'm using my gun in a real life threatening situation I'm not gonna be holding still....my heart is gonna be beating a million times a min, my breathing is not gonna be slow and steady, my stance is gonna be shit. Now that makes target engaging hard to do.

If you do the precision shooting you tend to not really be moving, so your heart and breathing are calm and slow...Your gun is light, the recoil is low and easily manageable and you usually have the rifle resting on some thing for more stability.......now all of that just sounds boring.

Plus chances of me engaging any thing that far away will prob not happen, seeing as I live in a giant urban jungle made up of steel, concrete and hipster faggots.

another rather successful competitive shooter here. I can boil this down in one line of green text.

>stop liking what I don't like

I shot precision for a long time. Being competitive and competing at the national level takes serious determination and practice. When I was still up there I was shooting six days a week for two hours plus. Its very easy to pick up and extremely difficult to master. Not everyone finds it fun, but I did. It also helped me branch out into other disciplines. I have very little interest in using guns for self defense, but I love the determination and skill it takes to be a top tier marksman. I love the equipment, I love painstakingly crafting center fire ammo for fclass or high power matches, and I love shooting tight groups on bullseye targets. It's fun. I shot two and three gun for a bit as well as IDPA, was moderately successful but didn't find it very fun. Not everyone out there likes what you like, but we can all get along without being elitist douchebags all the time.

Is it because they spend a lot of time in their cabins instead of talking about what to bring camping?

Is it because it's really hard to find space available and you can't manage to not look bad when you don't have a reservation?

Is it because you just don't believe in working on fundamentals or good outdoors sleeping?

Is it because you don't have the attention span to work the stove while adjusting the thermostat?

If practicing it doesn't make you better at killing people then you're not doing a martial art. People are allowed to enjoy sports like TKD and bullseye shooting with air rifles but that doesn't mean I have to give them the same respect as martial arts like kickboxing and IPSC.

>The standing position for Olympic style rifle is fucking useless as a practical position.
Actually it may have some use. Like you do accurate shooting from the room or tall grass and you can only have sight of the target standing. Though in real world it is possible to cheat. Like bringing chair or monopod shooting stick (special made or improvised) and get much more stable position.

I think it's mostly because the majority of /k/ enjoys the operator fantasy and not necessarily shooting.

because in my country they own 90% of all ranges and they dont give two shits about diversity withing shooting sports or other shooters who have no choice but to use your ranges, They sneer at shooters who look like they are actually having fun while shooting and have the audacity to shoot anything else than standardized paper targets

>Is it just because they spend a lot of time shooting rather then just talking about it?

In my country they are so degenerate that they basically see the rifle as a necessary evil for them to carry out their sport

Yeah its so hard you cant do it without 1000 Dollar Penguin suits and weird glasses that would shame a steampunker


>Is it because you don't have the attention span to shoot a full set?

its because i want a range with a use-flexibility that does not make shooting, marking and loading into a synchronized dance that cannot accommodate other people just relaxing, experimenting and having fun at the same time

Its interesting, but its not within the spirit of this board, and may actually be leaning more into /g/ or /sci/

>>
>>28856263

precision shooting has removed everything tactical, everything macho, everything that is related to fighting.

what you are left with is a pure shooting. unfortunately too many men in the shooting community have perversely attributed virility to guns and are not interested when it comes down to simply shooting.

I will never forget the remark that a backwoodsman once made when I was trying to entertain him at a rifle match near St. Louis. I had shown him the shooting house and target house; explained to him our system of scoring and our code of rules; had told him the reason for using such heavy rifles, sensitive triggers, pronged butt plates, cheek pieces, vernier and wind gauge sights- all that. Then I bade him to watch some of our experts as they made bullseye after bullseye on a target the size of a mans head, off handed at 200 measured yards. I thought my friend would be impressed. He was, but not to the extent I had anticipated.
After we watched the firing for a long time in silence, he turned to me and remarked

I don't hate on precision; it has its purpose. I just don't shoot precision because I don't have my .300 yet.

Precision shooting is more of a specialization than anything else. Sure, you can do it for fun. You can do it for hunting. You can do it for competition... But for me, right now... Its not a practical skill.

I shoot the way I do because earlier this afternoon when I shot a 100lbs sow 3 times, it was at about 60 feet and closing with an AR while she was charging me, not a harmless stationary steel target at 300m. I shoot for practicality, I shoot for fun, I shoot for thrill, I shoot for skill. I just don't shoot for THAT PARTICULAR skill.

And quite frankly, I'd like to see one of them fancy shooters in your pic pull that .22 out of its case, get into their stance and do the same under duress.

I will say this as someone that is a "fancy" literally impossible for standing. I might pull off kneeling or prone. Especially with the Pelican travel case.

On the other hand I'd like to see you shoot sub 1/4 MOA groups at 100 yards with irons.

Like you said its a specialization and not a practical skill for most people. It was practical for me because it paid for my college.
>>
>>28864105
Fuck I meant it would be even more difficult with the pelican travel case. That wouldn't make shit easier.
>>
>>28864009
But its not a skill used for shooting under duress.

I think a lot of people get cross about what they think is taking the human element out of shooting. I'm not going to say all but every Olympic style shooter I've met has been able to shoot more accurately than me on the range, with almost any rifle. They're still masters at the fundementals and that's all you really need to make a nice tight group on the range. None of them have pretended to be expert 3 gunners or hunters or room clearer's. Just guys and gals who are great at doing the same thing repeatedly with equipment that does the same thing every time.

As a shitty analogy, motocross riders have wicked expensive bikes built for track use. Doesn't mean you couldn't give them a stock bike and they forget how to ride. Same with these rifles/gear take them away and they still know how to pur bullets where they want them in a non "TACTICAL" environment

>Don't ever start the shit about .22LR not being real shooting. You come do highpower or 300m if you put as much time into training as you do running your mouth
I shoot the shit out of my 22's, theyre fun, decently accurate, cheap, but the precision ones (Anschutz, old Remington bolt target rifle) are the ones I shoot the least. Theyre HEAVY as fuck which makes off hand shooting impractical, I dont really go to ranges with decent bench setups often, so the bolt guns sit around and collect dust, ill take em out in summer mostly, throw on a t-shirt, grab a brick, go to the range and shoot maybe a hundred or so rounds at 100y while chilling out on a nice warm day to some music, its nice and relaxing

Theres a lot of reasons not to do to this kind of shooting, so lets begin

>impractical skill
youre not building on anything thats applicable to other types of shooting, the rifles are all heavily modified to the point where its less about trigger control and knowing your sights to more focusing on some bizarre stance. the way you shoot these matches and guns cannot carry over to any other gun or type of shooting because of the extreme differences and heavy modifications

>cont
>>
>>28866297

>price
Anschutz rifles are great rifles, love the one I have, but fuck me are they expensive, if I didnt get a killer deal on it I would NEVER have bought one, EVER, the Remingtons I have are inherited so I dont have a cent in those. Not only do you have to start with an expensive base rifle, but then you have to go out and get expensive modifications, and expensive clothing. Why? Not because it takes you to a certain level of the competition, that just gets you in the door, that gets you to the bottom rung of the ladder. You sink a LOT of money into it and have really nothing to show

>support for matches
completely nonexistent. in my state i would guess there is maybe a couple dozen people who shoot like this, i have met 2, and they shoot matches maybe once a year, a YEAR. theres no interest in this style of shooting, its impractical and expensive, its too niche which prevents people from joining in and thus limits the amount of support for matches. why hold a match if 4 people are going to show?

if you want something with a MUCH lower barrier of entry along with enforcing PRACTICAL skills with a lot of events/matches/support, go look at USPSA. I shoot production division with my Glock 17, its an absolute blast and it makes you work on not only fundamentals but also stress shooting and shooting while moving instead of standing in a booth

you can do 3 gun if you want, but thats a lot less practical, but in terms of hitting targets, 3 gun is a lot easier, what's harder are the manipulations

>>28856263
I suspect many of us who actually shoot start out trying to get decent groups, we work on sight alignment, trigger control and grip and with practice start getting better, but it takes time and it is hard to see large improvements even after investing months in dry fire trying to keep those sights undisturbed.

then we shoot some steel and all that work payed off because we find it easier to hit a big steel plate and move to the next one and the next one.

precision shooting takes a lot of effort to get good at it, practical shooting takes far less and is immediately satisfying.

>"British shooting advocate" literally says shooting isn't about weapons
A Britcuck who is hated in literally every professional shooting circle is not indicative of the sport as a whole. The shooters can't even practice without a fucking selfie stick attached to their gun that throws off balance becasue they fucking banned handguns.

Fuck you. I have never used the "Muh sporting goods" defense against gun grabbers and seriously disdain those who do.

Shot 10m air rifle in college. It's not tacticool or opera8er or nothin but it's no joke. Precision shooting is some hard shit. And you get gud at things like breathing and perfect trigger control, which carry over to other shooting disciplines.

You should come over to my house sometime, my driveway is icy and could use a bit of salt.

Also the guns look seriously retarded.

I believe you Anon. I have no doubt that Precision Shooters will do better at practical shooting than Practical Shooters will do at precision shooting.

this:

is pretty much this:

Breathing and stance becomes second nature to actual shooters.

Moron who knows nothing about what it's talking about identified. (I say it because I can't believe a male would be so ignorant) You don't shoot from the "flat surface", the tripod is to rest the rifle between shots, moron.

The U S Army and Marine Corps Rifle Teams shoot Precision smallbore but I'm sure you faggots know more than they do.

Biathalon went from skiing with military issue rifles to skiing with weak space guns that eliminate most of the challenge. Sure they can ski faster and shoot more accurately, but it makes it almost entirely a skiing sport.

Marine Corps don't have a smallbore team. Haven't since the early 90s. They do shoot NRA/CMP high power matches though.

>Brightly colored weird non functionally patterned shooting jackets.
For the sport those are incredibly functional. They limit movement. When you are looking for millimeters of precision the stiff shooting suits really help.
>Pink, blue, purple tiger striped stocks
What are teenage girls in the sport?
>"British shooting advocate" literally says shooting isn't about weapons
>British
You can't fucking buy knives there. They have to justify it somehow. Would you rather have them not own guns? Not enjoy shooting? Not have a responsible and mature way to show the ignorant public that guns are not evil baby killing machines?
>>
>>28866297
>but they really dont, the round count on every one of those rifles is INCREDIBLY low and thats the nature of the sport, fewer rounds in barrel = better accuracy
High power yes. My .22 target rifle I've put 1000 rounds or more a week for 10 years now. The barrel is still fine on it.

This is not true, if your shooting at a national level you can get a Section 5 certificate which allows you to own and shoot restricted firearms like pistols and self loading rifles bigger than .22
>>28870265
You can buy knives, you can buy shotguns, and you can buy rifles, don't be so fucking naive theres 5 ranges within 30 miles of me, but you are right, as a shooter in the UK we went through a tough few years recently, but shooting is getting more interest as people realise it more acessible than they thought and you dont need to be rich to shoot here, a SMLE and 100 rounds of .303 will cost you about £400/$600. Or if you'd prefer to just try it out .22 is £50/$70 for 1000 rounds and you dont need a license to go and shoot at a registered club, only to own a gun, and for roughly $10 plus ammo you can just go visit a club and try it out
