  1. I did and it did so I guess your attempt at calling me a Millennial that complains on the internet didn't work LOL.
  2. Exactly. This is why I beat my kids and my mom beat me, so we grow up strong and winners lol.
  3. Absolutely that's life, winners are winners for a reason and the same goes for the losers. Thats the way the whole world worked until the Millennials started crying that they want to be entitled to everything without having to do any work for it. I really don't understand people that see it any other way. Just like Tony the tiger said, if I got 149th out of 150 and won a better prize, or any prize at all I would feel guilty about it.
  4. Who exactly? I've read none of that in this thread. There's 2 kinds of people in this thread, order of finish or random draw. Can everyone pease stop comparing this game to sports like basketball, baseball etc. It's no where near the same. Anyone that wants to win a shooting competition can period. Jerry is old, slow and blind, Taran is huge, fat and slow, no offense to either of those guys I love them both. There are a lot of people that are just like them and are incredible shooters.
  5. Quoted for truth! Entitled is a key word in this post, oh how I hate that word/mentality. I'm not to sure how true the part about what class of shooter people see on YouTube to get them to want to try it but either way the come and goers will be just that no matter if they win a custom gun through random draw or a pack of stickers. Nothing sucks more that when the guy that it's his first match wins the best prize through random draw and never comes to a match again.
  6. No one really cares or is going to remember anyone that won unless their name is max, kc, Jerry, or jj... They just care about what they got themselves. Just look at the cesspool called social media, it's just a bunch of people trying to one up each other bragging about how great they are and what they have. I don't think I'm picking up what your putting down but it kinda sounds like you would rater compete against a lot of so so shooters rather than a slightly smaller field of top shooters? There's a simple solution to the whole debate of random draw prize table thing, don't call it a competition or a match, call it a fun shoot or a charity event.
  7. I totally see where you are coming from and respect that. For me I have fun testing myself, constantly improving and winning. So IMHO I am doing it right.
  8. Not true at all. I worked a major match for 2 years straight, I got to shake the hand of over 800 competitors and watch every one of them shoot. 90 percent of them were there with winning in mind. 10 percent of them were there just to have fun.
  9. It's not kinda participation trophy, it's is participation trophy. You only have to fire 1 shot on the first stage and you won. This is a major psychological problem in our current society on so many levels. Dont worry about the match not feeling up because it always will with people willing to work hard and place as high as they can. I'm seriously not trying to sound like a dick but there's no other way to say it. If you don't think you should be rewarded for your work you should just give your paycheck to the bum on the corner.
  10. Sir I will gladly buy you a sarsaparilla
  11. EXACTLY! Thank you for an awesome, fact filled post.
  12. Midsouth has a good deal on some berry's and there's a code for one cent shipping.
  13. This is a very important topic with me, there should be no such thing as random draw at a competition. If you are going to do random draw then get rid of the timer. This is the kind of s#!t that is ruining our society, everyone wants a participation trophy, no one wants to do any work. If your worried about the people that won't place not coming back f*#k em, they will eventually quit anyway and somone else will gladly take that spot. If people don't want to work hard to get something good they don't deserve it. I've worked my ass off for everything I have and every skill I have and if I go home with a pack of stickers I won't be back (not that I would ever go to a match with random draw anyway). So have fun with the people that come and go in this game (it's not a sport) just to get a couple participation trophys instead of the people that have been in this game for years and will be for decades more. I know a lot of people that agree with me (some not for the same reasons) and won't go at a random draw match because they work hard to be a good shooter. Dont try to say that the sponsors don't want the winners selling their prize either, that's a BS debate.
