Reply Jeff O. says: July 16, 2012 at 15:49 Oooh. I get it…it’s supposed to be meta. Reply Geoff says: July 16, 2012 at 15:47 Removed…. Reply colby says: July 16, 2012 at 15:59 try using this address for the video. It should work. youtube DOT com/watch?v=Fk-4maiu3hg Other wise just search USA Shooting Team – Keith Sanderson – NSSF Shooting Sportscast I think that is right Reply Dan Zimmerman says: July 16, 2012 at 16:48 Fixed. Thanks. Reply Jeff O. says: July 16, 2012 at 17:22 Wow it’s so refined it almost doesn’t sound fun. I’d imagine 3-gun would make an exciting Olympic sport… Reply Pascal says: July 16, 2012 at 18:34 It would go against European sensisbilities Reply Mike M. says: July 17, 2012 at 15:34 Refined, maybe. But it’s very, very hard to shoot any of the Olympic disciplines well. I compete in several (though not at an Olympic level), and they are a real challenge. The free pistol shooters will put 60 rounds into a group a size of a teacup – at 50 meters. Shooting with one hand. Good sport, if you like a real challenge. 🙂 Reply J in Ga says: July 16, 2012 at 22:06 So what is that ‘most popular Olympic rapid fire pistol’? Reply Daniel says: July 17, 2012 at 10:50 That would be this: http://www.bobsblitz.com/2012/07/starting-pistol-to-be-used-at-olympics.html Can’t have anything that looks too much like an actual gun in the hands of a serf on British soil. Reply Inge says: July 17, 2012 at 15:14 Looks like it’s a Pardini SP1 Rapid Fire Reply Mike M. says: July 17, 2012 at 15:35 Yup. Pardini accounts for about 70% of the Rapid Fire pistols at this time. Reply memomachine says: July 17, 2012 at 15:23 I bet Cowboy Action Shooting would make their heads explode. Reply TM says: July 17, 2012 at 16:52 Thanks. I’m pretty new to competitive shooting, always like to learn. Reply comatus says: July 17, 2012 at 17:06 Fellers, the message yeer a-sendin’ the world here is, Yee-ha lookee, I jist got me a pistol! And having shot with quite a few of you, I can confirm that. Speak English and tell the truth: have you ever had the unmitigated balls to try it? Some people contrive and cultivate ignorance to cover up a fear of inadequacy (others, of course, come to it naturally). I’m sure that’s not true of any of y’all born-again pistoleros, no sirree. It just looks and sounds that way. Reply olimpiada londyn says: July 22, 2012 at 09:45 Great sport, if you like a real challenge.
