Taking classes

I recently went back to spending some time/money on shooting as an avenue to help me finish the grieving process for my parents. Of course, as I had walked away from it for close to ten years I was rusty.

My skills weren't returning the way I had hoped so I decided to retake a couple of classes I had taken around 12 years back.

Today was the first day, and the photo is of the back of my target shot in the first hour of the range portion of the class. Don't remember the exact round count, but it was right around 35....(9mm)...Short distance (8ft), but I would say not bad.....

Thank you. I'm adjusting to it. Mom went first and Dad a little more than a year later. Been a year since he passed. Death is part of life.....

I've always found shooting to be a relaxing, centering experience. A way to concentrate my thoughts into a single action. Just trying to put round number two into the same hole as round number one and three into that hole … and so on and so on.

The satisfactory (((ping))) of ringing a steel plate. Whether it's a four inch plate at 15 yrds or a twelve inch plate at 100 yrds. We shoot to get better … maybe to improve our self defense, maybe to win trophies or just to out shoot our best buddies. It's "Zen and the Art of the Trigger".

Nothing like the noise and action of a range day or the quiet time of cleaning you guns afterwards. The anti-gun types will never understand any of this … their loss.
Chuck43, Teufelhunde and wayne like this.
