Re: Do You Shoot Rifle Competition?
At 81 years, I no longer can assume the prone position. The stomach is in
the way, the rocking motion does not make for competitive shooting, neither
does the act of holding one's head up to see through the sights for the required
amount of time to fire a shot accurately. So I normally use the sitting position to
do my shooting. A shooting aid such as a bipod, tripod, or a tree limb seems to
work well for most hunting shots.
If the targets were shooting back, I could understand wanting to shoot from a
a prone position.
I agree with you, I mostly compete with myself these days.
