Some of my thoughts regarding that incident: 1. How Eric (who was reportedly friendly with blacks and Asians earlier in his life) and Dylan Klebold (who's mom is Jewish) gave the appearance of embracing racism / Nazi culture. (I wonder if that was just their way of acting tough); 2. The inconsistency in their relationship (i.e., they were obviously tight enough to plot first-degree murder together. . . yet Dylan had previously tipped off Brooks Brown about Eric's threats and rantings on his [Harris' ] website, while Eric is reported to have blamed Dylan for planning their van break-in). It made me wonder: if they had escaped into the woods or something, and one of them had fallen and twisted an ankle, would the other have stopped and helped, or would he have said "You're on your own, buddy," and kept running? (But then, why would they have committed suicide together, and in such a ghastly manner . . .) ; 3. The double standard of believing that people who play Doom or listen to Marilyn Manson are necessarily antisocial, while football players who tease and bully people are just being good ol' boys; 4. How, for some inexplicable reason, more emphasis seems to have been put on the murder of Rachel Scott than on that of, say, Isaiah Shoal; 5. How it must feel to teach English or creative writing in that school since that incident; whether the instructors now microanalyze every word on every student's paper, or whether they see the incident as an aberration that does not necessarily affect their job in any special way; 6. How Eric and Dylan were reported to have pulled explosion-related pranks at the pizzeria in which they worked. Assuming those stories are true, how was that behavior permitted to happen? I can't imagine going to McDonald's and sitting there casually eating while the employees are hanging around outside, blowing things up; 7. How, like the parents of former police officer Justin Volpe (who sodomized Abner Louima in a NYC police station), the parents of Eric and Dylan genuinely seem to be excellent people who raised their sons properly; 8. Most of all, I marvel at the fact that someone from Columbine actually had the unheard-of stupidity to admit, "Sure, we teased them. But what do you expect with kids who come to school with weird hairdos and horns on their hats? It's not just jocks; the whole school's disgusted with them. They're a bunch of homos, grabbing each other's private parts. If you want to get rid of someone, usually you tease 'em. So the whole school would call them homos, and when they did something sick, we'd tell them, 'You're sick and that's wrong.' " I can only hope the tacit approval of bullying so evident in this sick statement is a result of an unfortunate misquote.

Media reports, identity of the shooters ( Dylan Kleibold & Eric Harris), 12 casualties, and improved school security. That incident prompted a copycat shooting at W.R. Myers School in Taber, Alberta, Canada.

do no longer use a youtube (self-published) video as a source of precise suggestion. if you're going to learn the Columbine shooters, use authentic materials and you may no longer be asking this question.

Benoni Originally Answered: How would i go about getting into shooting competitions?
3 gun is a speed vs accuracy game. the 3 guns are rifle or carbines, service pistols, and shotguns. Shooters engage a series of targets, arrayed to be engaged with the 3 firearms. The matches will usually have 3 to 6 Stages... fastest shooters with the least misses or NON ALPHA hits and penalties win the stage... IDPA does some 3 gun stuff... Lot's of gun clubs host "outlaw 3 gun" and IPSC has some rules that govern their version of the sport. Right now... AR rifles rule the roost...you will see a lot of Glock and Springfeild M&P pistols and some souped up Benelli M2 shotguns used by most 3 gun shooters. The shotgun shooting may include buckshot, slugs or birdshot... I've seen rifle targets from "contact" out past 300 meters... and the hand gun shooting could be all kinds of tactical problem solving. Most 3 gunners start in another sport and expand to 3 gun.... you can learn a lot about pistol shooting at USPSA matches...and lot's of clubs have rifle and carbine matches... learn the individual firearms... combine them and your shootin "3 GUN"
