In the modern times we're in, when we want to learn about something new we go to web forums, subreddits, and Facebook groups that are based around the topic we're interested in. I'm a member of web forums based around a TON of different topics, because I like to learn about things.
It's awesome to have the entire wealth of knowledge in the world at your fingertips, however I think in the competitive shooting world especially, it can be detrimental to actually getting new people into the games.
At it's heart, competitive shooting is... competitive. When you get a bunch of competitive people in a group where rules of the competition are discussed, there will be some debate. Debate is great.
You'll also get a bunch of people who've never read the rule book, who think they know the rules, arguing against things that are supposedly in the rule book, but actually aren't, but they're ignorant of what the rules actually say.
Then, you'll get someone who hasn't ever shot a match reading all this, thinking that everyone at competitions is a jerk, and at each others throats trying to do whatever possible to win, when that couldn't be further from the truth.
So, if you're reading in these groups, and you haven't ever shot a match, either go shoot, or stop reading.
You've got just a little more time to send in your voicemail telling me what your goals are for 2017. Head over to triangletactical.net/goals to send me a voicemail.
Here's what I want to know:
- What's your goal?
- What are you going to do to achieve it?
