Shoot from your V course. Stopped and moving! What do you think?

I'm thinking about asking my friend if I can set up a course on his land. I shoot all the time on the move and stopped. I put some targets out and was able to hit them it was really fun. Its a blast!

One has to really pay attention to what you are doing. Its easy to get distracted!

I love shooting from my V! I have hit gophers on the go at pretty good speeds! I have several shooting methods I have developed.

Does this sound fun to any of you other riders?

Sounds fun, and dangerous. That is the most compelling fun.

Uh oh! That does take skill and is pretty impressive moving. I've seen video of police officers shooting from moving motos (think they were French).

Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!

If you could find another willing V rider you guys could do some jousting! Just make sure you video it and post it on here

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Any time you here that, go ahead and call 911 so they can get a jump on the Stupid Stunt.

Ran a call when I was a Firefighter where to drunk Good Old Boys decide to try and shoot skeet off a bike. NO one got killed but the driver got smacked in the head when the shooter try to hit the the skeet. Both were nicely banged up in the crash as I recall and got to ride to the hospital.

Or was that look THEN leap?

Thanks for all the feed back! And no moto I am not in any gang! Ha! Ha!

This is just for fun, I don't do it all the time. No this isn't in the Proficient Motorcycling bible but why not have a little fun with it!

If you don't own a gun, I would guess this thread isn't your cup of tea!

My friend on his four wheeler is the best but come on. He can just let go of the handle bars.

If you want to safely learn how to shoot while riding join the Air Force and become a combat controller



Bear in mind that you will be shot at while doing this job.

OMG, you guys are gun toting rednecks?

So am I... LOL Unfortunately, I don't have anyplace I can do this type of shooting. I have to worry about what's downrange everywhere in my part of the world. No wide open spaces.

Actually, I do not own a gun nor do I have the need for one. I do not hunt and I live in the most boring and safest of towns in Colorado. I do not go to the movies either so I really do not need one. If I wanted to play with a nice piece of engineering I would get a pocket watch. I learned to shoot while in the air force. I had a chance to shoot real guns there. I say to anyone that feel they need to go around shooting things for no purpose. Become a professional and join the armed forces. They pay you to get in shape and you get to play with real guns.

I own some guns, why; because I can. I don't hunt either (nothing against it I just don't). This IS America after all. I enjoy target shooting for the personal challenge. Same as some enjoy throwing a ball through a hoop mounted on a pole or hitting a ball with a stick or running into someone else trying to get by them with a ball in their arms. I have a shooting range on my own land with a backstop to prevent any chance of downrange damage. I also own motorcycles, why; because I can. I'm a life member of the NRA and the AMA. I've been involved in fighting for motorcycling rights at city hall and the county courthouse. You're welcome.

MTS, I'm curious; are you a left handed shooter or did you just left hand shoot while on the bike? What kind of holster set up did you use? I assume you were using a handgun not a long gun. Have you thought about doing it like the mounted western shooters do, with black powder and balloons. Not as much of a challenge but much safer and you could increase the challenge by increasing speed.

BTW, sorry about taking your thread in a different direction in an earlier post. I just don't like it when someone tells me directly or indirectly that I don't need to or have a right to enjoy target shooting. I was at a public shooting range in Houston before I built my own range and a fellow in the lane next to me was visiting from England. He had rented a gun from the range to shoot but had the nerve to ask me why I thought I needed to own guns. I didn't even answer him but I felt like telling him he should go back to England if he didn't like shooting.

MTS, I'm also curious on your set up. I'm just gonna guess that you attach a holster to your handlebars so you can draw and shoot. Sounds like a blast to me.

DennisD, are you in the houston area? You built a public range? I'd love to spend more time at the range and am trying to get my wife there also but at the moment I can't really afford range prices plus ammo. Not for the both of us anyway....

No that's not me. However, I had a couple of buddies who did that kind of work. I was in computers and intelligence. Most of what I did in the brief period of time I was in the AF is still classified so I cant talk about it. However, I can say I was mostly boring B.S. I figure out I could esrn a living much easier in the private s

LOL While I wax writting the last post I saw on TV a show where they are building a shot gun and a handle bar mount to shoot while riding.

Discovery networks american guns motorcycle shot gun.

The shop in the show is in Denver, CO. About 45 min from my house.

I guess the idea is not as outrageous as I originally thought.
