    put three consecutive rounds in a 3x5 card at 200 yards. If you had you would understand that body control, strength, and controlled breathing make all the difference. A 1/16th of an inch change in angle of the rifle will change the location of the impact point of the bullet by several feet at 200 yards. People who compete at the Olympic level is shooting sports spend as much time practicing as archers.

    •  No, 3 x5's weren't really my thing (0+ / 0-)

      200 yards is nothing. Try 1000. I was quite proficient actually, just not that interested. It doesn't produce anything except amusement. And it's expensive.

      So you guess wrong. I still don't consider it a sport. It's a hobby.
