    Fight How You Train

    Does anyone know of any ranges in VA that offer pop up or moving target ranges. Because the normal stationary targets are getting quite boring and plus I doubt many real life situations will have stationary bad guys waiting for you to shoot.

    I haven't seen many situations where the bad guys will pop up out of the ground either.

    Just a guess, but probably the only place you might find it is at the NRA in NoVA.

    Actually, bowling pin shooting is more realistic street training since so any people in the US are overweight...

    You could also try a practical shooting sport such as IDPA, GSSF or IPSC. Competetive pressure is as close to combat stress as most will ever see.

    I was gonna say this too. Down at the Blackwater.. or Xe facilities I've been told they do either IDPA or IPSC or both. It's 20 bucks to get in for the day and just your ammo from what I understand. I've been wanting to do it for some time, but haven't had the cash for enough ammo. But I've got a little bit now thanks to a good friend! Let me know if you wanna go check it out one Sunday. I think one of the guys in The Armory runs the thing or is a big part of it. So we could find info out there.
    Protection is a responsibility not just a right.
