How to Win the Planet Shooting Championship
“The format at the NRA Planet Shooting Championship is special in that you do not know what you have to shoot till you show up, so instruction for the occasion is a tiny hard. My suggestions is to pack some fantastic eye and ear protection, bring an open thoughts, be ready to listen to the stage descriptions, figure out the greatest way you can take the guns they deliver, and post the greatest score you can. When the match supplies all the guns and ammo, all you have to do is deal with ‘the performance’. This is the most level playing field in the shooting sports — any person from about the planet can come and play.” — Bruce Piatt, 2015 NRA Planet Shooting Champion
