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?
