    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.
