So i've always known they've done small scale shooting competitions as in air rifles and pistols, but as i was looking i noticed that there's a 50m mens pistol shoot, and 25m pistol rapid fire. I was ignorant to the fact that they actually have legit shooting competitions in the Olympics. They also have skeet, and trap shooting. Anyone on our team that's worth looking out for? If so we should drum up some support. Today was the womens and men air pistol and rifle at 10m. China is in a quick lead by winning a couple there.

Here's the metal count so far:

PRC Peoples Republic of China: 1 gold, 1 bronze
Republic of Korea: 1 gold
Italy: 1 Silver

Didn't they once shoot .308?
Don't the skiiers shoot .22?
What's up with the air pistols?
Next it will be non-projectile lasers.:)

Unfortunately in mens 10m air pistol, South Korean Jin takes the gold. He's dominant. China's Pang and Spain's Carrera were fighting it out for silver, but they slipped to the Italian. The US didn't even make the finals for airpistol.

Kim Rhode is on track to be the first America to win Olympic medals in 5 consecutive games. She shoots Trap and Skeet.
