The action starts around 4:30 into it.
I'm not sure I could stand the excitement and stress.
Let's not talk about my shooting (dis)abilities.

I DO know that I would just about kill for any one of those rifles though.

not much excitement unless you're a shooter . . .
the stress is self-induced, until you learn to control it . . .

take a trip to Colorado Springs to the Olympic Training center some time - superb facility - superb shooters . . . and i will wager money that anyone there will do what they can to help you become a better shooter . . .

I'm sure they would.

I'm trying to find a club in the Denver Metro area that has air gun shooting events. I would like to get involved.

Amazing how involved this sport really is. Specialized clothing, etc.

Dude has a T-shirt with ISSF TV on it. Comcast doesn't provide that channel in this area.  ;) :D

I have a 10 meter Feinwerkbau however my front and rear sights are not elevated like these shooters. I assume this allows a more heads up stance. these "standoffs" must be avalable some where. Does anyone here have the elevated sights?
TIA

I'm very new to all of the variations of sights, but I'm also hungry to learn about them.

My knowledge is limited to browsing around on various merchant website. Here is one that has a LOT of stuff; FWB, Anschutz, Walther and more: www.champchoice.com .

What model FWB do you have? I'm jealous.

stinger,
my 10 meter is Feiverkbau 603. This is the last single stroke pneumatic they made. it's truly a work of art.
I used to own PCP Anshutz 2002.

Nice! I'm even more jealous now.

I think my MP532 is about as close as I'll ever get to a good match rifle, or at least one that matches my ability.

It's truly a poor mans FWB. Looks Soviet, shoots Deutsche.

Is anyone still using SSP's in match shooting, even on an amateur level?

. . . Is anyone still using SSP's in match shooting, even on an amateur level? . . .

i still see SSP's occasionally at ISSF matches . . . but mostly in pistols. the people shooting the Baikal's are shooting as well as anyone else - some better. rifle shooters are mostly PCP's now, but CO2's are still common as they are less expensive and are now considered "entry level"

i still see a fair amount of SSP's that come out for recreational shooting

. . . Does anyone here have the elevated sights?
TIA


as Stinger177 said, contact http://champchoice.com/store/main.aspx for the sights you are looking for
