Fall Sports Show Kicks Off

Posted: Updated:

The first-annual KX Outdoor Sport show kicked off this morning at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds.

Kelli Volk is live in the State Fair Center where the halls are still open and the evening is going strong.

Alysia, There's plenty to see and learn at the KX Sport Show.

Even I had a chance to sit down and try my hand a new skill with the help of the Minot Rifle and Pistol Club.

So there's a lot to do here at the KX Outdoor Sport Show. One activity that caught my eye was the shooting simulator. Today, I'm going to pick up the gun and try my luck.

With minimal target practice under my belt, luck is exactly what I was relying on when trying to hit the target with this air rifle.

Here goes nothing.

(Jeremy Thomas, Minot Rifle and Pistol Club Director)"She shot a 3.1. It takes a little getting used to.

By the look of my target I still have some work to do,so we're going to try this again.

So I kept practicing...and practicing.

Eventually, I managed to get a decent score, but it quickly turned into a rare occurrence.

However, as one firearm expert points out, the simulator is about more than points on a computer screen.

(Jeremy Thomas, Minot Rifle and Pistol Club)"We really focus on safety and gun range etiquette and stuff like that and just get training and become a better shot.

So there's my final score: 8.3. I declined a little bit, but it was an improvement, but now it's time for you to come down to the KX Outdoor Sport Show and visit the shooting simulator and try your aim.

The doors will stay open until 9:00 tonight.

Tomorrow doors open at 9 am.
