Dear Gun Whisper,
I’m interested in trying competition shooting but don’t know how where to find information. What can I do?
Signed, wanting to show off
Dear Show Off,
Competition can be a lot of fun, and gives you a chance to see how you stand next to your peers. There are multiple types of competition, USPSA, IPSC, Cowboy Action… You can look on the web for a club hosting a competition near you. One reference that explains competitions and may help you to choose a style is the book by International Shooting Champion Julie Golob SHOOT. You can find it on Amazon and other book sellers.
