    Impressive shooting in Norway

    https://tv.nrk.no/serie/landsskytterstevnet

    I was really impressed to see that shooting in Norway has got such a big audience.
    And also to see civilians shooting against military guys.
    Norway might be able to tells us more about that type of shooting?

    When is Hillary Barry ever going to report on a shooting comp in NZ ? Mind you she is not as cute and entertaining as that pretty Norwegian blonde;-)

    Norwegians have a long tradition of shooting and are amongst the most proficient exponents of the discipline.

    As you said it would be great to have such a devout following though. Get a media company to bankroll it because hey, marketing drives a craze. I did cadets at school which was like a precursor to going into the military. We used to shoot down these concrete tunnels from a prone position and every guy that I knew wanted to do it. The standard issue was .22LR but our school did have some Lee Enfield Mk III.

    These days, firearms are evil... I would love to see it more commonly accepted these days.

    Go join the NZ Deerstalkers they have proper target shoots but hardly any one attends the matches, years ago when I started we use to have 3 or 4 details at the monthly
    matches now lucky if there are a handful of shooters turn up, no wonder guns are not P.C if no one shoots at organized matches how can there be any positive coverage
    in the media, Check out Switzerland the sports news starts with the shooting results unless Federer has won a tournament, Norway has good TV coverage of shooting matches
    so does Sweden and Denmark, friends have in shot 300 metre matches in Germany where the first prize was a Mercedes-Benz, so get out there and compete grow the sport
    there are professional shooters making a living in Europe no reason why Kiwi's can't be doing it.

    I am not Norway but I did use to live and shoot there ...

    Landsskytterstevnet is huge - when I was there back in the 90s I am sure they used to get 4000 shooters attending across the different events. The event is run by Det frivillige Skyttervesen (roughly translates to Volunteer shooting organisation?) - which was founded in the late 1800s to promote shooting skills in the general population. At Landsskytterstevnet they shoot a few different disciplines including:

    100 and 200m three position shooting.

    Feltskyting (Field shooting) where a variety of targets which represent figures or objects like a wheel, bunker opening, or helmet, are used with distances of upto 600m - distances may be given or be unknown.

    Stangskyting where the shooter has 25 seconds to shoot as many rounds as possible at a target at an unknown distance - they do this for two different target size/distances.

    Just about everyone uses a Sauer STR 200 rifle these days but they used to use Mausers or Krag–Jørgensen rifles - both of which had been issue rifles in the Norwegian military.

    That was good and it is something I would watch, and that reporter reminded me of someone.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
