Well went to my first ATA event today in Cedar Falls to the Northeast Zone event. Broke 100x100 on singles & 98x100 on my Handicap. A nice day.

Or even the one day hunter class matches these same Match Directors put on now a days since these field match events help with making training better.
Well I have done a lot of competitive shooting, NRA, High Power Across the course, long range 600 and 1000 yard, Pistol, Across the course. Military Composite, long range, Combat Rifle, and Combat Pistol. Shotgun, Trap and Skeet. I still shoot pistols across the National Match Course, both 22 and Centerfire. Rifles are primarily shooting 1 MOA or less, .22 and high power of various calibers in local competition. Pistol currently completing Law Enforcement Training/Qualification. I Like all forms of shooting, am an active NRA certified Rifle and Pistol instructor.Any form of competition? With rifle, shotgun or handgun. Archery too I guess.
Just curious, I know most of us here are hunters, which seems natural for a Nosler forum, since the company made their reputation with premium hunting bullets.
But - I've shot a lot of matches with Nosler competition bullets. Looking back, I've competed in:
NRA across-the-course Highpower matches
NRA long-range prone matches
Various practical/tactical matches
Very casually with trap and skeet. And a little "five stand" some years ago.
Did best at trap, the others scrambled my head!
IDPA with my 1911
Some local police-only matches
Way back in high school & college I shot outdoor field matches and a little indoor league shooting, both with a Hoyt recurve target bow.
Feeling the need to get back into some competition. Have some options available here.
Trap at the gun club
600 yard prone matches at the gun club
Some kind of pistol/steel shooting is avail about an hour's drive away at another gun club.
I always enjoyed, and am missing it. Been a while since I did any competition shooting. In NRA High Power, and shooting a few practical/tactical matches, I was going through 1,000 - 2,000 .308 rounds a year.
Who else here competes or has shot in competition?
