2. Absolutely not...

They focused on the military, automatic rifles and outdoor shooting.

They touched on paint ball but framed it in the light of a military exercise.

There is so much more that is fun and recreational: safety training classes, silouette shooting (indoor and outdoor) and the things they have to do to accurize their rifles and cartridges, bowling pins, steel matches, IPSC, Cowboy matches and Sporting Clays.

I belonged to a pistol club and I can say that I have never been with a more supportive group of gentlemen in my life. thier focus was on accuracy and sportsmanship and they would nelp any serious fan of the sport by giving assistance thru either information or loaning their personal equipment in order to help someone advance their abilities.

I know people who are not familiar with guns have a knee jerk reaction to the sport and that's unfortunate. Hopefully there are people who wil take a look and say, "That's not for me but now I can see why some people may like it."
