    You'll have a blast.

    Before you even worry about getting your gun/gear on find someone who looks like they know WTF they're doing and let them know you're new. 99% of clubs love getting new shooters and will make you feel right at home.

    Just pay attention to everything they say, concentrate on safety, etc. don't get caught up with speed. make your hits, pay attention to everything around you and relax and enjoy yourself.

    i need to practice more so i don't suck to much to try this stuff.

    i'm sure you'll have a blast, that shit looks so fun.
     
  6. The best practice for this kind of shooting is to simply get out and do it. There's really nothing you can do on a normal range to prepare for it.

    No you don't. It is practice. ;)
     
  9. Trust me, the videos make everything look good. What you don't see on the videos is the scores people are shooting. I've shot some awful stages that looked great on video.

    Yup, don't worry about you skill level. If you can handle your gun safely you are skilled enough.

    Doesn't matter how much you've practiced before going to your first match you'll still have your ass handed to you by 13 year old girl or 70 year old man.

    Nope. I just thought they stopped doing the practice there on Thursdays :dunno:

    The guys there put on good matches so if its the same group it should be a good time. I'm in Butler and try to hit a lot of the local matches.

    I don't think I can go tonight, but don't worry about being new. Everyone needs to start somewhere and that practice session is a good place. Just ask questions, shoot slow, and shoot a lot.

    If you're in Cranberry you can hit a local match every weekend with never more than an hour drive. Check out westernpasection.com if you already haven't.
