    didn't want to resize them since you can't see the brass in the air then.

    Technique for picture 1 pistol looks pretty good. The other two are OK. Would of gave more points if you used the sling to tighten up the shooting position. Looking at how much you got that sling out I'm guessing you don't really use it.

    That's what I'm talking about. Good use of the sling. If your going to put one on your long gun you might as well use it to get steady.

    No :o I wore Puma's... Vegas is too fucking hot for regular shoes though, so I normally wear quick detach shoes as well.

    We're brothers and actually close to equal in terms of shooting skill. I'm only 20 though and could not hit a target to save my life 6 months ago. I've been actively trying to get better since my chosen career is law enforcement and I want to be as good as possible before I get to the academy.

    This is the other target we had setup for longer range shooting (yes, there is a dead dog in the picture, we didn't put him there):

    I know, but when you do it is usually a life and death situation. The more one practices and works on technique the better chance of winning a firefight. Remember, when you actually get into a situation where you need to use deadly force fine motor skills go out the window and the body reverts to what it knows and what is instinct. If you practice enough it becomes instinct.

    Fair. Kudos on at least taking the shooting stuff seriously. From my understanding, the shooting part of the academy is pretty much the LAST thing that anyone would need to worry about, and unfortunately it seems that shows up in a fair amount of officers.

    They train to a standard which is fine, but I don't like the fact that they only are required to go once every 3 months to qualify. I think they should have to shoot much more than that.

    Yeah well technique is a good indicator of skill. The flip flops threw me too. We usually get on the girls about that. Hot brass between the toes, doing the dance with the hot gun in hand is bad news. If you get a 223 between the toes you would know.

    The sling thing is usually a good indicator of rifle skill. When the sling is all the way out like that is usually a really bad sign. If you were to sling the rifle with the sling all the way out the rifle flops around a lot. People get branded by the hot barrel on the leg. seen it happen a lot.

    I have a bad habit from being a competition shooter or looking at things and sizing up everyones ability based on what I can see. My brain has this desire to try to rank everything/everybody and try to learn to improve my own rank in the same process. I'm a real competitive person, I can make anything a competition. To my credit I play nice with everyone. I don't have to win, but it has to be competition or I lose interest.
