With all the yammering between the pro/anti gun crowd, the role of sport shooting is being hammered to dust. I live in Portland, I don't need a weapon, but I really enjoy the precision of shooting. I enjoy the craft of a mechanism as crisp as a clock, but hard enough to take thousands of "hammer blows". I miss the days when high schools and summer camps had rifle ranges. I admire the devoted national or Olympic shooter. Name a better spot for a home grown Biathlete (OK-Colorado, now name another). I understand the simle joy of perferating a pop can. One more nickle gone.
Have all the angry arguments you want. Please don't outlaw fun.
