My friend without pants and I have been kicking an idea around for the last couple of days, and I wanted to put it out there to see what the interest would be like. The short version is that Robb and I are both fond of the blogger get togethers like The GBR and the 2ABlogBash, but we’d like to see a little bit more shooting at these gun blogger events. GBR has a range day, and the BlogBash has NRA’s air rifle range, but what if there was a match, say a “Gun Blogger Invitational” match that allowed you to hang and bang action pistol style with your fellow internet gun nuts? Note, I am in no way trying to undermine or detract from those events – what I’m doing is gauging interest in an actual match that would be built for gun bloggers. Of course, to make this financially feasible, we’d have to allow other shooters to attend the match, so the scoring would work out like this:
All shooters would be competing for the overall championship, which would include some kind of prize/trophy. There would also be trophies for championships within classification, be it IDPA or USPSA (and even for unclassified shooters). There would also be a prize/trophy set aside specifically for bloggers – with the highest overall blogger walking away with that prize/trophy. Unfortunately, to put on a match of this size and magnitude, we’d have to charge an entry fee for the match, but that’s the only downside I can think of.
With everything I’ve listed above, what would your interest be in such an event? Remember, you don’t need a blog to come and shoot, but you do need to be a blogger to win the special blogger category? Thoughts, opinions, etc in comments, and vote on the poll.
