They allow the shooter the best opportunity to network with other shooters and learn about new techniques and equipment. Competitions are an excellent form of training. These competitions are challenging and enjoyable for all competitors. We usually host a "Train-up" session the several days leading up to the competiton. The Train-up offers competitors, either seasoned or new to competing, the opportunity to climitize, exercise their equipment in on the ground conditions, and benefit from several days of expert instruction to hone their skills for the contest.
