Range time - and if you hit the target well every time - the target is either too big, or too close -- or both.
Or, you are just shooting TOO SLOW!

I usually only punch paper when working on a setup or verifying accuracy. Cutting loose on a stage in a match or just rattling the Christmas forest is far more fun.

Arthritis

Since my joints degenerated run&gun has been too slow and the up&down is more down than up. Gravity isn't my friend.
So, shooting has come to plinking and not competing.

it ain't pretty

I am crippled.
I am hard of sight and hearing.
I've had multiple surgeries on both upper extremeties.
I need both knees and my left hip replaced.
I still compete, but I lose.

I don't find shooting at a range fun at all, just standing there and dumping ammo into a piece of paper with a bunch of rules. shooting outdoors and bringing lots of fun targets(waterbottles,watermelons,tannerite,paintcan,etc.) is hard to beat for fun. especially if you have about a thousand yards to play with. the only range time I see is working up loads in the dead of sumer when its too hot to go out and hike a mile. competition, I dunno, but I hope to know soon

Range for me. I shoot clay pigeons, water bottles, fruit, tannerite, and old tvs/computer monitors on occasion. Cant beat that.
