Unless you want to enlist in the U.S. armed services, I would suggest starting small. You could find a club that teaches/shoots NRA Smallbore and learn the basic positions, breath control, etc. Shooting with a .22 rimfire is great practice to learn the basics.

Competing with an AR is different than shooting a Garand in CMP or John Garand matches. Just digesting the rulebook is daunting enough if you are doing so from a CMP intent.

Learn the basic shooting positions and PRACTICE dry-firing before even going to a range. You'd be surprised what you can learn practicing in your basement dry-firing at a spot on the wall. http://www.fulton-armory.com/\faqs\Match-FAQs\dryfire.htm

Some good links for info-

if you are really interested in nra hipower go to central jersey rifle and pistol web site. look for the hipower section. its run by one of the top shooters in the state and they offer seminars open to the public as well as nra competition. i used to shoot there and it is the best club in nj , 200 and 300 yd ranges, as well as having the best run hipower program in the state.

L&H HIGHLY recommends a guy from Long Island. At least I think that's where he's located.

For all types of shooting...handguns, sheet. trap, long rifle.

If you like, I can check with the dude at L&H or you can call him. (732) 282-1812 ask for Tim.

The free, day long High Power Seminar at ANJRPC was *last* Saturday. The follow-up day at the firing range is coming up, but you would have had to attend last Saturday's classroom portion to attend.

If you are anywhere near south Jersey check out Cumberland Riflemen in Millville, NJ:

http://cumberlandriflemen.com/

Click on the target labled "Match information" on the main page and a schedule will follow showing you all the matches and training events scheduled for this year.

During the warmer months we run a Tuesday night clinic for high power shooters of all skilll levels starting at about 5PM.

An important note... Cumberland is the only 600 yard range in the state and hence the only range where CMP Excellence in Competition matches can be held.

Club memberships are only $100 a year.

PS if So Jersey is to far away try to get to Central Jersey. Pinto is right on the mark.. John Donald is a superb shooter and one of the nicest guys around and can't do enough for a new shooter. He loves the sport and will go that extra yard every time.

I shoot competitively, if you have never shot small caliber before I would suggest starting small. If you know how to dial in a small bore dialing in a high caliber is a little easier.

Rimfire discipline is a great way to practice and learn sight picture and shoot from the various positions.

"Rimfire discipline is a great way to practice and learn sight picture and shoot from the various positions."



very true, you have got to learn discipline and technique.. however, once that is sorta under control.. the only way to learn to read the wind is to shot the long line. Only experience will teach you to read the wind and mirage!
