As I was reading the latest IPSC Shotgun Competition Rules my eye stuck on rule 220.127.116.11 that reads:
Competitors confined to wheelchairs or similar devices may be given special dispensation by the Range Master in respect of mobility assistance, however, the provisions of Rule 10.2.11 may still apply, at the Range Master’s discretion.
I liked it very much as I think it proves that shooting is a very nice, democratic, friendly and fair way of competing as well as meeting nice and smart people from all over the world. Anyone can participate in the same match, regardles of age, gender or physical condition (well almost anyway).
As I live in a country where civilian gun ownerships i nearing its end - it seems - I always get appealed by stuff that shows how great it is to own and use a gun.
My avatar speaks for itself when it comes to music. Rock'n roll aint noise pollution...
So as I was reading the rule book, I decided that if I would ever become bound to a weelchair, I would form a world-class team called "Rolling Thunder" and kick some serious ass at all Level-III through V shotgun matches around the world.
