things haven't changed much from 2004...JD Translation:
I got into IPSC, 20 some years ago for a couple threee years, it was really the only serious firearms experiene I've known. Now that I try to play "survivalist", rifles get important, so I spend alot of time trying to relate IPSC to rifle work. It kind of sucks though, that I never really spent time hunting or had any meaningful experience in the military. It gets real hard for me to relate rifle work to practical usage since I have no experience to draw from. So I guess I can understand why the people that do have outdoor backgrounds and military experience think I'm a dumb @ss.
