Re: Report On Defensive Edge Long Range Shooting Class

Len,


This is a GREAT site, UNQUESTIONABLY. lots of good wisdom to be discernd.

Shawn is a professional and great teacher, I totally respect both of you.

I differ with this excerpt;

1 shot instant kills are what makes a hunter.

Everything else is target practice.

Hunting isn't a sport but a conservation responsibility and the meat must be eaten by someone.

You can't hunt accurately at 2500 yards with less than 50 bmg and take an animal consistently with 1 shot.

So why shoot at it?

Ed

Len and I took the class just a week apart. Upon arrival we found Shawn in a cast. The story around Rathdrum metro was, it was a confrontation with a griz and the bear was still in traction and a body cast being fed through a straw.

Are you replying to my post? If so, please note I quoted "Grit" and was answering his question about Shawn's broken arm.

The put to sleep stuff I received this morning as part of a upper GI procedure has quite worn off!!!

SO, Take your attitude into your 'man cave' and keep it there! Also, get real on the purpose and function of long range hunting, you may have to move a wee bit west to even begin to catch on!

And Finally, you may also wish to trade up starting with your Thudy Thudy!

PS: You mess w/Broz you me with me........... and most probably a few others......

Back in my hole I go.....

Roy, sorry you had to go through that. Stop trying to hide stuff from the Misses and you won't have to go through this. Hope you are OK!

Because you learn much that will help you out at lesser ranges.

And, many here shoot rifles that are as good and better and some much better ballistically than a 50BMG at 2500 yards.
