I have had the opportunity to introduce some fellows to long range shooting this spring (and hopefully hunting this coming season). All three guys have "got the bug", they have acquired some good rifles and are in the process of getting all the neat stuff to support the habit. They are a bit awestruck by the costs of good toys but each individual is determined to get good gear - scopes, mounts, spotters, shooting mats, data books, cleaning gear, guncases, Mil-dot Masters, wind meters, Harris's and more reloading components than they ever thought they would be burning up. Just thought that I would mention how saticefying this can be. These days this is worthwhile, the more shooters of any kind the better. We take a lot for granted here - there are a lot of guys who have forgotten more than many of us will ever learn about long range shooting. Going back to the basics with someone who is keen, but who has never experienced long range accuracy is a lot of fun. If they get the bug all the better.
