i'm 15 years old and my father just purchased a Ruger 22/45 for him and I to use (mostly me, he has a sig p229). I'm really anxious to get into competitive shooting. We live in Vermont and we were wondering if there were any leagues that I could join so I could shoot with opther people my age in a competitive environment.

Please describe where you live. I live in Duxbury, and belong to a shooting club. I have friends who shoot in many different disciplines; Bullseye, Cowboy, 22 Bullseye, etc. I and my wife are IPSC shooters.

Respond and we'll find you someplace to go blasting!

How about you, your dad, and your gun/gear show up 6:00 Monday night at GOSS COURT NATIONAL GUARD ARMORY in Burlington for some informal IPSC-style shooting?

'Eyes and ears' mandatory.

Check out our club page at www.macten.net/ipsc/gmps.html

I don't think we'll be able to make it tonight, my dad is in boston and my mom isn't into guns at all. Maybe we can shoot with you next week. How much does it cost to shoot with you guys?

Free for a while for newcomers (ain't life grand?), and modest dues/fees after.
Don't worry, it is NOT prohibitive. The most expensive part is ammo!

Good, ammo is one thing we have plenty of. My dad just got 14 boxes of 357 sig made by speer for 5 bucks a box. He's looking into a reloading press. 22 is so cheap that just I go through about 1000 rounds a week.
I hope that we get to shoot with you, I need some change other than shooting pepper poppers at 20 yards and standup targets at 7 yards.
