Let‘s talk about Competitive Olympic style target shooting.  Earlier I mentioned it as an equipment heavy activity. You need to invest around $4,000 to $7,000 in a few Olympic Competitive grade pistols, such as a CA Air pistol, a FREE Pistol, and a Standard Pistol around $2,000 each. No special classes are required. In common knowledge, you can compete as much as possible as long as it is FUN. This is the most common problem in the road of achievement the highest performance in Olympic style target shooting. A lack of structural and initial knowledge of the technical performance, too much attention on the technical part of the equipment, a very low level of problematic areas of the performance, too much motivational BS, and encouragement to buy “stuff” instead learning the structure of performance for people who just start looking in this direction in competitive performance.

First of all, from my point of view, a very low performance level in AP is 540-550 and below 540 in FP which is far from the description of “FUN”. As much as I remember myself during this short period of time to be at this level, it was most frustrating and unpleasant experience in my entire competitive career, simply because there were multiple issues interrupting the process. It takes time and a knowledgeable solution with an experienced mentor or coach who can work with you and help you to create a successful plan to overcome this level ASAP.  After you will be able to control your performance at the level above AP 565 & FP540, you will start to appreciate the game, your time, and the importance of the initial investment in your own equipment and education.  Otherwise, your money spent in Olympic style target shooting equipment serves as a simple conversational piece or collectable value.

In the light description of “FUN” in target shooting, I recommend you to try PPC Clubs (Police Pistol Combat Competitions) and events across the USA. This is what can be described as real “FUN” in the Target shooting.
