    What happens is people can't read distance. 100 feet becomes 100 yards.

    noob "I zeroed my rifle at 100 yards like you said"
    Yar "You did it on berm 1, that's like 30 yards".
    Noob "No I paced it off it was 100"
    Yar "Damn I'm going to play in the NFL then because I can punt a football 100 yards"
    Noob"wat, oh i see wat you did there"

    That's like the people who claim to group in a dime at 100 yards with stock rifles.

    Ya, I'm convinced people confuse yard with feet on the net all the time. Or everyone that goes to my range sucks hard with their handgun.

    :dunno: On occasion ive grouped my 10/22 in a quarter size at 100 yds, all stock except for a trashco 3-9. Its usually a lot bigger than that though

    regarding groups

    Another of my pet peeves. It does not mean shit unless it is a 10 shot group. If your doing anything less it can just as easily be luck.

    Noob"my new rifle is sub MOA, look at this group!"
    Yar":rofl:"
    Noob"Man yar your a dick, that's a bitchin' 3 shot group"

    I'm happy if I can just keep all of my shots on the target at 25 yards (from a normal stance w/out extra support)... not less doing tight groupings at 100 yards with a pistol.

    *edit* Can you copy/paste the original post for those of us who are subless??

    It all depends on what gun I'm shooting, if I'm working with my free pistol, any shot that goes outside the 7 or 8 ring I'm not happy with. *50m, one handed...*

    Don't even get me started with magazine writers. I think it might be a good idea that you can actually shoot before you try to pass yourself off as some sort of expert.

    Every fucking site I am on with a gun section, I have to sift through the pages of "my 2 inch grouping at 25 yards with my new keltec P3AT" or some impossible variance of.

    It must be a universal ignorance.
