Well, no time like the present to learn!
Be warned though, once you start shooting guns, you cant stop! :shock: When I went through basic training at Sand Hill, most of the guys in my Platoon had never even held a gun in thier life, much less fired one. But, thats why you spend 2 weeks learning, firing, and cleaning your weapon.
For those that are "planning to be in the military," and want to get yourself a Rem. 700, please remember you wont be going straight from Basic to Sniper school. It takes a while (typically) to get slotted, so your best friend will be an M16, M4, or SAW for quite some time.
I however, personally believe tactical shooting is a lot like archery, trying to achive both mechanical and physical perfection. Which is what I love about it! I think most here would agree with that.
