I'd think it would depend on the type of competition you have available to you.
I'm planning on setting up a family style shooting and competition group. Many of us at work have similar interests in shooting. Our community is pretty tight knit and we should be able to make it fun for all.
agree upon ranges, target sizes, time limits, firing positions, why not? All the "accepted", "standard" matches were once just one guy's idea, you know. Same as was basketball, 4 bases on a baseball field, the rearward "lateral" thow in football, etc.
Which organisation should I contact for more information if I am interested in doing competetive rifle shooting (low power). And possibly shotgun, as well. I know the IPSC does rifle and shotgun competitions, but those are mostly held abroad and not in the US.
