I shot a USPSA match last week. Didn't set the world on fire, but I didn't embarrass myself either. But I didn't shoot the match to win. I shot it to have a good time and take advantage of the training opportunities the stages offer. That's the problem. The club (I'm not a member, it was open to the public) is made up of 90 percent "gamers" (not meant derogatory). They are really into their hobby, they were friendly, they offered a lot of tips. Good bunch. However, my goals shooting stages are different from theirs. What's the best way to explain this to a "gamer" without coming off as a jerk? I don't want to cause hard feelings and I enjoyed my day with the club, but I also don't want to pick up habits suitable only to a closed course. Any advice from competitive shooters here?
