Access was the problem at that place. While visitors were allowed, I
was kept at a distance. The competition shooting was done in two
places: inside little fake frontier town storefronts and in an area I
couldn't get close to behind some other buildings. It was
understandable since live ammo was used.

Normally, when shooting photographs, positioning is essential for good
shots. In most of the shots I took that day, I couldn't move around
and shoot from several angles as I normally would.

The competition was combination of accuracy and many shots
in a time period, and in the pistol competitions the time started
before the gun was drawn from the holster. They also had a
competition where the shooter fired a rifle so many times and then
drew fired his pistol a number of times.

Like many people involved in hobby groups, winning the competition
didn't seem to be the big deal. Just participating, and spending the
day with people of like interests, seemed to be more important.

You are correct in that I don't have a particular interest in shooting
sports. Usually, I concentrate on the people involved. What I wanted
was a photograph of a person shooting a gun, but a photo that showed
the face and person behind the gun. Character over props. It just
wasn't possible in that venue.
