Looking to get into prs shooting competitions, not doing it for the money but is there any money in prs shooting? Also I would like to know what kind of equipment I would need to get started thanks!

Well, there technically is money in it but you would need to win and have lots of sponsors. Most guys do it because they love shooting. Most still have day jobs. Sponsors give them free or discounted goods and product but if they win they could come away with a couple grand...which they probably promptly spend on custom rifles or something haha.

Equipment wise you would at least need a rifle, scope, and ammunition. I'd direct yourself to this blog to start with.

There's money in it, but not "make a living" money.  You can make enough to offset your costs for the season, and maybe even buy yourself a real nice steak dinner.

If you're REAL good, you might make a few grand.

Most guys that "make money" from PRS do it in some ancillary, related fashion - like advertising their product or gunsmithing services, etc.
