    OK, everybody feel free to flame.

    This sort of stupidity infuriates me:


    From the vid:
    FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY
    AN UNDISPUTED WORLD SHOOTING CHAMPION
    Really? Seriously?

    Any "world shooting champion" must be able prevail while being tested by courses of fire recognized...wait for it...by the entire world.

    Just because the NRA and a sponsor want to bill something as "undisputed" doesn't make it so. It's laughable. To the extent the rest of the world will even notice this event, the response will be "If you're the world champion, show me your Olympic gold medal."

    I'm all for diversity in the shooting sports but it just makes the NRA look stupid and presumptuous to declare a world standard when the NRA is a U.S.-based organization. Wanna dictate "world standards"? You need a worldwide organization with tests recognized in every country. Like it or not, that means the ISSF and Olympic gold.

    Sheesh, the NRA does so much good stuff that when they pull a stunt this insulting to, quite literally, the competitive shooting community of the entire world it just makes them look like redneck chumps.

    What infuriated me was how slow that guy was with the shotgun. Square up into it, get your support hand further forward and higher and control that recoil, Jethro.

    But, but, if he doesn't shoot like a maniac, how will the world know he's the undisputed champion? /s

    No disagreement from me there; I always used to get a chuckle out of total, barefaced arrogance like that when living overseas.

    Easy to be "World Champion" when you don't invite anyone else - might as well hold an ass-kicking contest in your backyard and call yourself "World Champ". Whoop.
