Bart B. It is kind of a shame that the old sports with full sized rifles have all gone to rimfires. Watching a Finn unsling a biathlon model Mosin and clean the target is always humbling. A lot of national pride used to hang on who had the best riflemen on the 300 meter free rifle line.

I'm learning the hard way that techniques that work on a full size rifle to deal with recoil do not translate well to airgun shooting. And there is absolutely no way I would want to shoot a center fire rifle like an air rifle. I wonder why the IOC made the change? Maybe to open up the sport to countries that have incredibly horrible firearms laws?

"Gorsh" said Goofy as secondary explosions racked the beaten zone, "Did I do that?"
