Which begs the question “why won’t the good guys run one?”dont let the scores scare you off from a gasser...if you can actually shoot a gasser (be honest with yourself) itll be fine...most guys runnin a gasser in matches would struggle with the best bolt gun, and the good guys wont run one
ive run a gas gun twice in our club matches so far this year...finished 2nd both times @ 75+% for the match...i dont own or want a scar tho, and i agree its not the best choice, but too many people act like "gas gun? o no chance..." ...lots of top guys wont run something different because theyre scared of looking bad, they wont run a 308 either...some of us will run a variety and still stay at the top, is what it isWhich begs the question “why won’t the good guys run one?”
Because they will drop points, relative to their bolt actions, and be less competitive.
I posted the scores merely for illustrative purposes. The top shooters would have, probably, shot good scores with gas guns. Would they have been top scores? The top shooters didn’t risk it. To the OPs actual question- I don’t think the scar17 is ideally suited to the prs game, and there are better suited options in its price range. If you have one, take it to a match and tell us how you did. For the record, I would have placed well in the gas gun division, using my bolt gun...
