You only shoot in nice weather.

You bitch when someone is shooting a break'ed gun

You have to have wind flags

You have to have sight'ers

You have to foul the bore before shooting a match

You have to shoot on the first relays before mother starts kicking

You have to time your shoots between other shooters an ask them to do the same

You shoot then whine when things don't go your way

You don't shoot other than match ammo in your stick

You don't shoot run an guns with your match rifle

You are always beating your brass out with a rod

You can't shoot a match w/o your data book

You whine when told you can't change your scope knobs or power setting

I agree, while preparing for the 2004 Grand American Trapshoot I practiced in all weather conditions and it paid off! I won the Beretta shoot-out that year after shooting all day in the wind, rain, and darkness.



The prize was a $10,000 Beretta DT-10 Combo. It was worth it,

I bitch about #2 almost every weekend or the all time winner, a guy shooting an AR-15 and dumping mags under an awning. And, to top it off, the casings are flying all over the place and hitting me. Bitch, bitch, bitch - that's me.

The best group of the day is on your target and you didn't shoot it! AND apparently neither did anyone else!!
I did that once(not best group). I had shot bench an target # 1 for 3 practice relays the day before but, on match day I was on bench 6. I normally start at a grand an come back to 600 (1K-900-800-600) (everyone else starts at 600 an goes out) sure enough I put 2 in the 1moa ring an 1 in the 2 moa ring on target #1 before I realized how stupid I was. The funny thing was the guy on bench 1 had a bet with another shooter and missed the scoring rings completely with his 6xc but, the way the match is scored, the three I put on his target added 25 points to his score anyway. He won the match! We all got a kick out of that one. The guy he had a bet with said we cheated but my reply was the 6xc shooter had been on team Geritol with another guy an I, an team Geritol came first no matter what. I still don't think he believes us to this day, but it was pure stupid on my part, for if the shots had been on my target I would have won that match. Oh well stupid should hurt, lol.

Love my Berettas. My favorite is a 28 ga EELL Diamond Pigeon, King Ranch. I grew up near the ranch and spent a lot of time hunting and fishing there.

Guilty as charged, because I don't want to be shot by those who should never be allow to use/own a gun!

Yesterday AM, Cold, raining sideways, re-zeroing after a two stage trigger install in a Rem 700, had the whole place to myself, wet but a great day!

I've only ever shot on three types of ranges

1. Military ranges

2. Competitions

3. My range

The least desirable to shoot on. Yet on those you except the fact, you may get shot or worst.
True. I have never been on a two way range, though I would bet BW has, even if he can't talk about it.

I am a dyed in the wool range pussy. I accepted that when I chose to start shooting Palma.


That said, I hate brakes, even though In use them on four of my ninja rifles. (in fairness, two are just to hook up the Ops12 can so they don't count ) and I cannot stand fuckers who leave the range in a shitty state for the range cadre or the next mornings shooters to straighten out.

How hard is it to re-face a target or paint it before you put it away? Clean up after yourself.
No, I don't want my balls digging into you brass from yesterday.
Do me a favor and don't smoke upwind. I could care less that you smoke, but have some fucking courtesy.

That's pretty much it for my pet peeves, but I admit I am a range pussy so....

My range pet peeves.
1. Shooting my target.
2. Smoking on the firing line.
3. Answering the phone on the firing line.
4. Getting pissy when I ask you to put a chamber flag in for range cold.
5. Mag dumps.

Range pussies have to go with friends.
Range pussies only shoot at targets that are easy to hit.
That being said, at least you're at the range. I hate it when people buy guns, but never shoot them.

My pet peeve:

Being squaded at a 1000 yard match next to a guy shooting a M1873 Trapdoor using black powder. The smoke from his rifle seemed to want to hang right in front of my firing point.

Its difficult to read mirage through a haze of black powder smoke. Target wasnt easy to see either.

Black powder at 1k huh. I assume they aren't parking the cars near the pits:)

You're a range pussy if you shoot from a mechanical sled and go around telling the prone , tripod and rear bag guys how much better of a shot you are . Got a guy at my range that whether your sitting , kneeling , prone , standing AR or prone bolt gun .
He can outshoot you anyday . Funny cause I never fuckin asked .

If you show up to the range wearing a bunch of tacticool garb (elbow and knee pads, BDU's) while shooting from the comfort of a bench.

People show up at range with a new gun and cheap scope and cheaper mount, can’t buy a shot on paper and then want to borrow your tools and your time to help fix it...and you do it for them, rather than letting them f it up even more.

Probably the same guy has never turned his elevation or windage turrets since sighting in at 100y.

I don’t know why, but I’ve shot my very best groups with my son’s brass hitting me face when he’s shooting an AR next to me.

I wonder if it’s because I know I need to focus more?

This one Bugs me the most. I guess I’m super sensitive. Last match I shot, the RO was blowing Upwind most of the day. He traveled with the squad. I shot like crap, but didn’t make excuses. It was me.

On that note … guys that start making excuses before the shooting even starts!

1. Does -18F* count? It wasn't snowing or raining that day. I don't like to have to goop oil and grease on my weapons after shooting, so I avoid those.
2. yeah, when someone don't ask...it's as disrespectful as smoking upwind
3. bench shooting...trying for small groups, You might not understand that.
4. See #3
5. See #3
6? talking about weather?
7. Having to shoot alternately is kind of a pussy thing.
8. Can't say I've ever seen anyone "HAPPY" when things didn't go where they were supposed to.
9. And why wouldn't you shoot match ammo if practicing for a match. Shooting shit ammo isn't going to get you where you want to be.
10. run an guns are matches, that's why you use what works for matches. Why shoot what doesn't work or what you are saving for more precision work?
11. That's not "pussy"...that's stupid. FIX THE DAMN PROBLEM...before you kill or maim someone else on the range.
12, I'll go with that, You oughta have a pretty good idea where your rifle shoots
13. WTF?...whose shooting those matches? So, the guy with the duplex can't compete with the fixed ten guy with the mildot? Part of the fun of shooting is running what you brung. If a guy doesn't have a marked reticle, he has to dial.

So, two out of thirteen...I'm a range pussy.
