    You are just a massive fricking moron. The true larp are all these people that fell for the tactical training shit, which is just a layer put on competitive shooting. Competition is what drives excellence in any area and all aspects of modern tactical shooting are based in competition. If it would be up to the government to decide how to shoot in the best way possible you would still enter stupid poses and try to off someone hip firing an m14.

    Also competition drives progress. If not for competitive shooters your rifle and handgun would not have red dots.

    So stfu uneducated moron.

          Old GWOT grunt here. Nobody shoots anyone in modern combat, for the most part. The vast, vast majority of casualties are arty and CAS. If your goal is to kill the other guy before he kills you, you'd be much better served in a military setting being your platoon's forward observer and getting really good at accurately directing fires. If you're not the FO, your main goal is simply going to be to not die. You're not going to see who or what you're shooting at most of the time because the other guy is also trying to not die. Cherrypicked videos of Ukraine are not the rule. They are the exception, as they've been since we discovered how to make large explosions happen away from where any of our guys are. In most cases, in a military setting, the absolute last thing you want to do is get upright and run around trying to shoot someone. It's common sense once you're actually in that situation, but most people have never actually been in that situation so here we are arguing again over whether or not blappy tacticsman is a moron for having pretensions to expertise over anything but his meme course.

          He sure is good at shooting, but shooting doesn't keep you alive. Nothing will. If your ticket is punched in a war, it's fricking punched, and there's nothing you can do about that. A lot of this shit is just trying to get control over something that's inherently uncontrollable. War is brutal, capricious, and unforgiving. Its machinations could spell the end of your life on a whimsical twist of fate as easily as if you're Jerry Miculek or Bobby Stump from Cookietown, Oklahoma.

          There's no way to transmit knowledge of any of this in a way that would impact anyone, but I'm sure trying hard. Be a good shot for sure. It very well may save your life. But don't think it gives you any real control or makes you somehow better suited to surviving at war. It doesn't.

        You are moronic. Competitive shooting like USPSA trains important skills in shooting: Draw, presentation, sight acquisition, trigger control, rapid fire, general accuracy, target transitions, shooting while moving, etc...
        For actual combat it should be augmented with specific training that focuses on shooting homies, but there's a reason a lot of SOF dudes shoot comps.

      it's flawed / reductive, but it captures the main thing. the differentia of competitive fields is interesting. you can compete along practically any dimension of life that a handful of people can agree is fun or stimulating to cultivate.

      being opposed to the parameterization of sports and the ranking of participants within those parameters can be a matter of taste, and everyone will take issue with one sport or another at some point. but if you oppose sport to a fault, you're probably just not processing a whole chunk of the human experience out of avoidance.

      Mostly agree, but the one area competition is bad for combat is gear choice. Most top tier competition guns and gear heavily sacrifice durability (and for triggers, negdis safety) for pure high speed performance.

      The best mix is combat proven guns and gear being used in competitive training.

      A custom $3k+ 2011 with a 1lb trigger, dainty CMore dot with 5 minutes of battery life, and a bulky slide wienering handle on the side is not a good sustained combat option. Neither is a similarly set up precision gassed Competition AR.

          I'm just saying to maximize translation of practice to a combat scenario, you should use guns that are practical choices for self defense or combat in general, not precision geared competition focused gun setups.

          Whatever you carry should be the pistol you compete with, whatever is your shit hit the fan long gun at your house should be the one you compete with if you want competitive training to serve as combat prep.

        You want realistic practice? Go to the range, set up a target less than 7 yards away, shoot five rounds at it as fast as possible, then pack up and leave. Going by statistics, that's the best way to simulate a self defense scenario. It's also the best way to never get good at shooting.

            Either you’re moronic or intentionally missing the point.

            When you take your motorcycle test, in America which has notoriously lax standards, you have to do stuff like a figure 8 in a parking spot, slalom and other stuff.

            Will 99.9% of riders ever need to do those maneuvers? No, that’s not the point, the point is to become proficient at those more difficult maneuvers so you’ll be able to easily do the simpler ones that you’ll actually do on the street.

            Now if you were to make a competition out of a motorcycle test, you’d want to make it much harder, because a lot of skilled riders could easily pass the test with a perfect score, making the competition pointless.

              The real thing being practiced is marksmanship on the clock. That's the most useful skill coming out of these "practical" competitions, the guys shooting it are excellent. Can't say enough for its value in making you a better shooter generally.
              Not much else translates to real life, because life/death situations aren't a scripted set of targets on a timer. It's like claiming being a racecar driver makes you better on the road than the next guy, that semi truck driver asleep at the wheel slamming into you didn't care who you were till you put on the mask.
              Your assailant won't care that you were a skilled shooter, you may not see him.

                This thread reminds me of combat sports in the late 90s and early 00s. Fat fricks would say that there was no need fight in the ring/cage because it was not real life and all their techniques were too deadly. However, the stress of walking into a ring/cage fight is high, you learn to control those emotions, and actually hurt someone. So what if I can’t eye gouge, bite, and attack the groin…

      >competition drives progress
      Most of the time. Sometimes, the rules of a competition are responsible for stagnating an entire market segment. I know this isn't the same as the progress you were talking about, but cowboy action shooting rules continue to ignore the fact that double action revolvers existed in the old west. As a result, we have twenty million SAA reproductions and not one DA top break repro.

      Dynamic shooting is a gay larp.

      As others have said, it's a sport and you're a gay, but you do have somewhat of a point. Some people get it backwards and think what matters in a competition is that same as what practically matters, the biggest offender being quick reloads. Speed reloads with a semi auto, and even with a revolver sometimes, do not matter at all outside of competitions and that is a fact. Prove me wrong, but the only cases I've ever heard of where anyone died due to a slow reload, average Joe or LEO, was reloading single rounds with a revolver. Yet these competitions like IDPA/USPSA put so much emphasis on speed reloads to the point where you cannot hope to be a serious competitor unless you drill reloads. To me, that's a huge waste of my time to practice a specific skill that is meaningless outside of the match.

      Then there's also the gear aspect, where in an IDPA match, I put my mags in my pocket because that's where I carry them. But then I will always lose time on the reload to the guy with the OWB mag pouch and a fishing vest. The gun restrictions are also gay since you can't use anything less powerful than 9mm outside of BUG in IDPA, so some well-known duty pistols like the Sig P230 and Makarov that are too big for the BUG box are just not allowed. With all that being said, I would really like to see a newer competition option come up that is a true “shoot what you have” club and focuses on more realistic scenarios. Until then, I practice those on my own.

          I meant "shoot what you have" as in any handgun is fine and the point would be getting people in to compete with the lowest barrier to entry possible. I haven't sat down and drafted a rulebook or anything, but my ideal competition club wouldn't be very competitive at all. It would be a more casual experience where people could get to shoot on a timer in well-designed, but short stages. I suppose a guy could come in with a Volquartsen 22/45 every weekend and always put up the best score, but this club would be more about getting the average concealed carrier in to improve themselves through competition, and I think the really competitive types would get bored with it quickly and move on to IPDA/USPSA.

            Money dear boy, except for a couple regional or national matches with sponsors, most matches are club run, with the same people that shoot showing before and staying afterwards to set up the stages and tear it down afterwards. To shoot my idpa qual locally i had to set up the stuff myself with the president of the club as my work schedule was weird. Plus it's a lot easier to have mesh "walls" and drums you can just easily move around than building several dedicated shoothouses of wood or brick. Canvas gets torn and is expensive, and plywood is heavy. Plus you need to standardize courses of fire if you want it to catch on anything but a very local level, so people will still know it more or less. It wouldn't work, the idea sounds good, but unless you're filthy rich and plan on sponsoring the sport as a pet project it'll stay a dream

                I think there's an opening for my idea because there is no competition group that particularly caters to the modern citizen who carries a gun. IDPA is the most recent of the two you mentioned and it started in 1996, and some people still refer to it as "90s action shooting". A lot has changed since then in regards to the average Joe carrying a gun, and I think a new competitive group could get the noobs in. It probably wouldn't even take competitors away from IDPA/USPSA since the people who really like the competitive aspect would go on to join either of those two groups anyways.

                Okay, how will you set up your courses of fire, and your scenarios, if your range agrees they'll loan you or rent you a couple bays, if you're really lucky someone else already has a bunch of mesh walls, barrels and other shit laying around, but i doubt they'd loan them to you, specially if you snob at their particular sport. Will you buy and make your own? Where will you store the stuff? Who'll provide the targets and target stands? Do you have a certified range officer? The range due to insurance policies might simply tell u no because of liability.

                I unironically wish you luck and success, but mainly because i want more ppl to go out and shoot and practice.

                I currently have access to a private range, so i can shoot whenever and however i like, but before I'd go to the woods and set up targets for dot torture and do draw fire, holster, repeat for a long time as most ranges won't let you because of the lowest common denominator
                >this moron shot himself so nobody can have fun

                Honestly you seem to want to just train instead of compete, kudos to you. Best bet might be if you can secure access to a rural property in the boonies and then slowly build up a range. Still costs a lot of $$. Better find a range that allows rental of large private bays, get someone to get RO certified and start there, if your buddies are really serious you can see if they wanna pool cash to buy props, etc

                The liability factor is the main reason why I haven't taken the steps to do the real thing. I have all the material supplies and they can fit in my vehicle, I could probably rent out a couple bays for a few hours, and I have one friend who could be the range officer with official backing, but I don't have the national support that the other competitive leagues have and I don't have their lawyers if someone shoots a round through their leg or worse. You're right that I just want to train and that's mostly what my competition idea is based off of. It would be about competing against yourself and your own previous time, but also include some casual hanging out with the guys and seeing what other people are doing to maybe improve what you're doing.

                So why not just go to uspsa and compete in limited optics, limited, ss, revolver or stock? Or idpa in stock or the like? Most ppl compete like that. Just grab a couple friends and go in the same squad, don't bother yourself about the race boomers. Go, see how u do, then go again next time and see how ur HF, time, etc compare, you'll identify what areas you need to work upon, etc. You don't even have to walk the course, u get 5 mins to do so, and u can do something else instead.

                I have so far competed with the following through diff years:
                -m&p 2.0 9mm
                -cz 75bd
                -SA 1911 MC operator 45

                -Kimber Polymer doublestack 45 (bul m5)
                -Glock 17
                -Beretta 92fs type G

                I use a blackhawk tlr1 ret holster or a 1791 leather one depending on gun, and surplus police mag pouches. I don't use optics, and keep the guns as stock as possible.

                I plan on going with a model 28-2 once i get more speedloaders. And i wanna try my 4006tsw.

                You are not going there to beat the pros, just to beat your previous score and improve what needs to be improved. If you want to train with buddies go ahead, but competition wise you're making a bigger deal about stuff than it needs to be

                Man you don't want to rapid fire those .38 cal N-frames. The extra mass in the cylinder(from not being bored out to big boy calibers) beats the shit out of the bolt and cylinder notches when you go fast.

      pull your head out of your own ass. red dots are shit and late 1800s trappers would shoot circles around most modern competition shooters. the military has never been an authority on how to shoot or even maintain a firearm. not all competition modifications are beneficial to the average user nor do they always add reliability to the firearm, and knowledge and technique certainly does not always benefit from it either

      Sniping is very different than other types of combat. It's basically secretly target shooting people, if people know where you are and can engage in 2 way combat you have by definition failed at sniping.

    i signed up for a local shooting league because its entry level, i suck, and it seemed like it would be fun. just static shooting at paper targets. despite it being advertised as entry level and the requirements were 'at least 32 acp with at least 8 rounds" its a bunch of guys with staccatos vying for perfect scores

    what's a gay larp is shooting alongside people with guns that are literally ten times more expensive than the gun i'm shooting with ten times the experience. obviously they're better than me i'm not slighted by it but their goal for doing this doesn't seem to be competitiveness or improving themselves it really just seems to be keeping themselves at a level where they can dominate people who offer zero competetive threat while pretending they aren't

          So I daily carry a gun that holds 15+ rounds, has a comp and a red dot. With a spare mag, nice holster, etc it is probably $2k altogether. I live within 2 hours of exactly 1 decent pistol league. Should I instead leave that gun at home and go with something lesser to keep it "fair"? I shoot in my backyard almost daily, so I have way more practice than most of the people I compete against. I also can justify spending 2 grand on a gun that will likely never be used in anger because I will shoot 10k+ rounds through it a year in perpetuity.

      Gear is maybe 5% of the equation, the rest is you. I compete with a Glonk 17 and consistently mog the boomers running $3k race guns and shooting 9mm major. Before that I was finishing mid-pack overall while shooting single stack with my $600 1911. I've noticed that a good portion of the dudes who own race guns think they can buy their way around having to practice. They'll buy a Staccato and get frustrated, start blaming the gun, sell it, buy an Atlas, get frustrated, sell it, repeat ad infinitum.

      The only way to git gud is to get your reps in. Do dry fire every day, even if it's just sitting on the couch and aiming at whatever is on TV. Practice your draw, practice sight acquisition, practice your reloads, learn to call your shots, just spend time with the gun in general. You'll be demolishing boomers in no time.

    Have any of you actually gone to a shooting competition ever?
    Shooting competitions are good ways to put your skills to the test and find out a lot of things that you dont know. Example, you build your gun belt based on the instagram tactical operators, you go out to a comp for the first day and find out your positions are wrong and you're constantly fumbling trying to pull shit off your belt. So, you've learned you need to change it up.
    What they are not, is training on how to fight in combat. Improving your drawstroke is not nearly as important as learning the difference between cover vs concealment, and how to maneuver on targets. I don't know, I've never got in a gun fight, but it's pretty obvious that the skills are not 1-to-1.
    There are obvious gaps: example, competitions will frequently have stages where you fire behind cover, but this is less about actually protecting yourself (you are not deducted points if any of your limbs escape from cover for example) and more about shooting in an uncomfortable position.
    At the higher levels of competition you run into metagaming. People shooting IPSC open class pistols and having belt rigs with next to no retention because it improves their draw time minutely.
    But no one is forcing you to metagame. You can show up to a comp with completely the wrong setup (I show up with a SBR & can, both are actively detrimental for competition). And people will not judge you for it.

    The skills are not directly 1-1 but competition is a way to get out and go shooting, and shooting practice time is never a bad thing.

      Marksmanship goes a long way and shooting sports prize that above all else, they're very good teachers. You will get proficient at shooting in these competitions.

    I found it very useful training. Using a longer slide version of my usual carry gun with a my normal T-shirt as concealment and extra mag in the same position as edc. I wasn’t gaming my set up. It improved my times for draw, reload, malfunction clearance, moving to cover, etc. Yes, the targets are stationary, but when the buzzer sounds there is a small adrenaline dump and my brain is telling me “Go Faster!” It’s shooting under pressure. Depending on how you approach it it can be pretty good for reinforcing skills. And, it’s fun as hell.

      You would probably need to go to some dedicated shoothouse for that kind of thing, but it would be nice.

That was always a bit of a bummer to me.

        and this is why only the shooter actively on that stage should be able to know the layout of that stage but im sure comptetetive hype beasts would get aneurysm if that were the case

        Mentioned earlier in the thread, this should absolutely exist. At least at one or two stages at a event.

        i would like entire events like that

        people that feel the constant need to compare themselves to others can’t handle adversity. this would cause mass hysteria

        which is why op is correct in that dynamic shooting is just a min maxing competition that doesnt actually have that much to do with actually shooting

        There are a lot of 2gun and action matches were certain stages are blind and have no walkthroughs. Not every stage, but they like throwing one in there every match. This is especially true for darkhouse stages.

        The reason that it isn't always done is because it would take forever for someone to clear a stage, be very prone to breaking the 180, and the squad can't help paste targets if they haven't shot it yet, making it take longer to reset.

          Idk most people at IDPA or USPSA matches wouldn't mind doing something like that: people like challenges hence why they're at a competition. The big problem is for match directors and ROs: blind stages are usually more concealed which makes it harder to tell if people are still resetting the stage. It's a safety thing which is why a lot of "walls" in dynamic shooting are just snow fences.

        Shooting isn't analogous to war in the way that video games are analogous to esports. When you're involved in any kind of real world shooting, you aren't plinking steel targets.

              yeah it is. for how accessible it is USPSA offers people the chance to move and shoot quickly in a challenging environment. a local match costs about 20 bucks to enter and will require maybe 200 rounds, in the span of a few hours you will get to do fast shooting, holster work, moving and shooting as well as learning from other shooters who are probably better than you. Altogether it is a very useful training experience that will let you know what you currently suck at.

              that sort of thing usually costs hundreds of dollars.

                It's better than nothing, sure. But it emphasizes things which don't matter all that much to anything but competition. That's the issue. Sure, if it gets people up and moving that can't be bad, in and of itself, right? Right. But again, that isn't the point. You're trying to argue it too absolutely. It's possible that competition can be a good thing but also less than what people want it to be. That's my entire position.

    Op sucks donkey wieners on a daily basis.
    What you gain from competition:
    -marksmanship under stress. The clock and people watching induce stress, which is great. If you ever have to shoot a melanin enriched individual, you won't rise to the level of your expectations, but fall to the level of your training.
    -you'll realize your own shortcomings, did you fumble the draw? How quickly could you clear that malfunction? How are those reloads? Can you shoot both fast AND accurately? You'll be able to see what you need to work on
    -you can test your gear, your gun will run 100-200 rounds in an evening, your mags will hit the dirt and your stuff will be dirty. I had a holster detach itself because blackhawk sent me too short screws. You learn where to position your stuff in a way that works with you.
    -you watch others and learn from them. At matches at any level there will be scrubs, and there will be john wick wannabes. Most people compete in categories other than optics.
    -multiple divisions, you can shoot limited, carry optics, revolver, single stack, bug, any gun you have in 9mm or up you can compete with. I mostly use a stock m&p 2.0, but will run 1911s, a 5906, a bul m5 and other oddball guns for shits and giggles

    In the end you can be a homosexual like OP, or go shoot a Match, be humbled, and work on improving yourself. It's better than poking holes in paper, you'll have to shoot at targets in cover, at a variety of distances, at moving ones, and while under stress. There's only benefits and it's fun

        Obviously related to potential sd acenarios, more so idpa if you draw from concealment
        >pressure element
        You can't have a gunfight practice, but if you ever have to draw in anger you will be under tremendous pressure, it's the best u get for practice, more so for matches that include a pt element or night matches with a weapons light.
        >detecting your own shorcomings
        Due to the pressure element at first you'll fumble things. You'll fumble the reload, you'll struggle to clear that malfunction, to get the mag out of the magpouch, etc. You can honestly see what you need to work on.
        >testing your gear
        Unless you're running optic (which very few people do) you should compete with your carry stuff. I run the same leather holster i do for owb carry and use a stock gun without a dot.

        Stop being a gay and go shoot, you'll improve your skills and have fun. All you need is your shitty polymer gun, 3 mags, 1 holster and 1 surplus mag pouch. You won't win, but you'll benefit a lot, and maybe, just maybe contact with other people will make you less of a sperg

            You avoid the main point and retort to logical fallacies you subhuman.

            If you ever need to draw a gun irl, you need to be able to:
            -draw fast
            -aim and shoot fast at your intended target(s)

            Both of which you practice in a competition, same reason you do dot torture or other drills if you have a range that allows to draw from holster. We know that performance goes down while under pressure, a competition is not life or death, but it does still instill a sense of stress and pressure, which forces you to get accustomed to it. Same with reloads, clearing malfunctions or firing while moving. Those are motor skills that you NEED to practice to get proficient add, same reason you practice drawing and dryfire. A competition is the closest you get to training that short of having access to simmunitions and hell of a lot cheaper.

            In the end you're a sperg that is so fixiated with "muh fantasy" to recognize the benefits and skill building, it's also fun. I bet also you don't practice with pistol anything beyond 10yds. Try bullseye. The skill you get will translate to close range shooting

          You develop marksmanship, a great skill and I'd encourage anyone to join if they want to shoot better and faster. Lets not pretend the world is like a scripted John Wick course that you study before shooting.

                Nobody here except you is thinking that the average street encounter is going to turn into a mass shootout, but being proficient with your firearm will help you.

                The alert mindset is the only thing missing, and that is something you just have to work on by paying attention to your surroundings and not getting into bad spots. No amount of training is going to help you if someone comes and shoots you in the back of the head. Go outside, shoot a local match with your carry gun, it'll humble you, you'll learn something and have fun.

The ASP dude doesn't pretend to be a SEAL or have extensive combat experience, he just watches videos and talks about what he sees, and there's nothing wrong with that. Let's take a different hypothetical example and say that I'm an auto mechanic who moonlights as a rapist for hire. I sit down and watch every police and self defense shooting video that has ever been posted online, document myself doing so, then talk about how in 89.1% of gunfights I have watched, the person who shoots first wins. Is that analysis of the data I've seen somehow wrong or inconclusive just because I do not work in a profession where I shoot at people and/or get shot at?

This is probably the best time in history to be a student of self defense with handguns.

                I'd rather talk to a guy who spent a lifetime working on cars or cutting down trees, than watching fricking videos of people working on cars, or cutting trees down. Let alone DGU's. If Correia is such an expert, how much DGU's did he personally survive? Or is he just an armchair general doing some color commentary on grainy liveleak-era CCTV for easy Youtube clout?

                It's irrational to expect anyone to rack up multiple DGUs when the rates are so low. Best guy I can think of is that israeliteelry store owner in LA back in the 80s or 90s but even that isn't really a good example because he was targeted by gangs and in a static defensive position. As imperfect as it is the study of random DGUs is the best anyone can do and to dismiss it as useless just outs you as a moron who is worth listening to even less than the active self protection guy.

              well first off a ppk is 700 dollars new and does absolutely nothing better than a glock 43 while being in a crappier caliber. it also has a worse trigger.

              the 'go to a gun store and hold all the guns until you find out that feels the best' is one of the worst nuggets of fuddlore out there. guns are meant to be held by human hands, they are ALL going to fit your hand in some way.

              if you're going to holster-carry a gun there is very little reason to choose anything other than a G19, M&P 2.0 or P365. those are the three best 'compact' pistols on the market and choosing anything else is simply contrarianism.

                A brace of .38s. One AIWB(right hand) and one innapocket(left hand). I'm a degenerate revolvergay. I've put in a lot of work over the years because I love it. Consequently I have a lot of confidence in my skills and equipment. I will put a cylinder full of rounds right in your face with either hand faster than you can say "I thought she was 18." And before you lose your mind I've been carrying a gun damn near every day for 28 years and most of that time was with an autoloader of some kind(commander 1911, p229, hi-power, G19 among others). I started with revolvers and after a couple decades have come full circle right back to them. Sorry, not sorry.

                Man you guys really get threatened by anything outside of the accepted current year larp. Shit just isn't as complicated as gun industry marketing and the training rackets want you to think it is. If you can draw decently fast and put your first couple of shots on target with either hand you're doing better than 90% of all gun owners. Frick if you go to the range more than 12 times a year you're in the top 10% of all gun owners.

                I've never claimed otherwise. I also shoot them very well because my feelings have me practicing like a mad man because I enjoy it. It's synergistic.

                >i dont even hate on revolvers for CC but like you don't even have good grips
                Are you me? Do you have my hands? Have you tried grips until you found the ones that work for you? I promise you I have the best grips for me.
                >you have dogshit hockey tape because you need to feel scrappy.
                Nah I have grip tape because I live in the south east and it is hot as frick most of the year and I have noticed when I'm sweating my ass off I have a better grip with the tape. It's really just that simple. I have experience and I do shit based on my experience. I only tape my carry guns.

                Literally everything about what, why and how I carry has evolved over 28 years of experience. I'm not telling anyone else what to do. I am telling people what I do and why. This makes some people unreasonably salty. I don't know why that is.

                Everyone should carry a pocket gun all the time regardless of whether they carry anything else. It's a big advantage to be able to put your hand on a gun in a 100% unobtrusive manner.

      By that logic, 99% of people will never need a gun, period, let alone a spare mag. Why carry? But I'd hate to be the guy to need either and not have. As a wise person here once said, its not the odds that matter, it's the stakes. It's only your life on the line right?

        >Why carry?

        It's a hobby. It's a lifestyle choice. It's a mindset. It's really not for everyone. Like I said you do you man. If you feel the need to carry for the most outlier event you can imagine you go right ahead. I don't feel the need. My lifestyle is pretty low threat. I don't really go out at night much. I don't go to bars or other sketchy places. I do practice like a fiend though because I enjoy it. I like my odds. Remember kids:

        >avoidance
        >awareness
        >de-esecalation
        >evasion
        >engagement

        If you got to the shooting part you probably failed further up the chain.

    Shooting at trash and magdumping is fun.but u could be a lot better at it if you went a few matches.if you took 2 shooters of the same skill,and one only shot matches once a month for a year & the other only just magdumped at the range every weekend in full kit, the comp guy would obliterate the larper if they did some shot timer practice.OK ppl so it's like okay if some ppl like to just train in innawoods and some like dynamic shooting comps it's OK they're both avid shooter's & the world needs more shooter's we're already eating our own enough already.OK so just go shoot how ever u want it dosent matter as long as your out there putting rounds down range & having fun .

    I always figured with handguns that one of their big pros is usability in awkward positions which allows one to take better advantage of available cover
    It's mostly standing with repositioning being practiced which has its place but does seem to cause people to not really maximize handgun usage to cover more varied scenarios

    you fricken asutists act like theres just ulimited ammo. 90% of the worlds remaining ammo supply (much of which is gone due to ukraine and their useless resistance) will be used up inm the first few months of world war 3, and most of it is going to be absolutely wasted. if you're smart you'll work on your archery skills, as they will be much more useful if you intend to survive. guns will only do you good in urban situations, but if you can hunt with a bow, you'll have no reason to even go into those urban areas.

      ehh yes and no. There's plenty of people out there with stockpiles of ammo and if you're not using it to shoot a lot recreationally. It can last quite a long time.
      It is an interesting problem to think about, because even if 95% of people don't have any ammo, that 5% who still does are a big deal.
