So I've noticed the last little while that many of the people I work with don't believe that all this long range shooting stuff is possible. Many of these guys are even avid hunters themselves. We usually end up talking about guns, hunting experiences, or long-range shooting in general and after telling them what I know/have done they blow me off like I don't know what I'm doing or am lying to them about being able to actually make shots from 500 yards to even an occasional mile gong-ringer.
A few of my long-range shooting buddies have said they get the exact same reaction from some of their friends/co-workers.
Here's a good example:
My uncle from Texas came up here on vacation and my dad and I took him out to whack a few "mile" rocks. He was hooked and went home to all his buddies telling them what he had been able to do. They all told him it was impossible to do that stuff, "Only in Hollywood" they'd say. So next time my uncle came on vacation he bought himself a long range gun, and took it back to Texas so he could prove his buddies wrong
Anybody else here get similar reactions?
