hello there, im new to this forum and rifle shooting. as a matter of fact i have only shot a rifle when i was abroad visiting friends altough i have spent the last 3 years reading alot on rifle shooting optics and equipment. in my country, Malta(europe) it was prohibited to shoot rifles so we could only collect weapons. the law has finally changed after alot of gun lobby and i hope ill get to finally enjoy the sport. i have studied some ballistics mainly external ballistics in university so i got some good background in theory and bought a number of videos and books on the subject. i would like to have some formal training in rifle shooting and long range work in the US this coming summer and i would like to get some information on where is the best to go spend money and learn and practice for a while maybe a month or so. i came over to the US 3 years ago and i still have visa for 2 years so i hope i can make the most of it. i truly love seeing avid rifle shooters and read your posts and see the equipment you use. For some its everyday things, for others its a dream waiting to come true. thank you.
