I intend to join TCGC soon for short range target shooting, but I came across some practical rifle TCGC videos on youtube today and man do they look like a lot of fun. So I have a few questions to the club members and those who actually do practical rifle shooting: 1. Do I need the 'action range certification classes' in order to participate in the practical rifle shooting/competition? 2. What calibers of ammo/rifles are typically used for practical rifle? 3. How do you train for practical rifle (sniper) competitions? Is there a course/range in TCGC where you can train and go through the same shooting conditions as the competitions or do you do train for short/long range rifle shooting and use these skills in the competitions?
