A Day At The Range
Ahhhh...I feel so relaxed after putting 350 rounds downrange!
Practiced my presentation from close-ready, my trigger pull and reset, emergency reloads, and worked to improve my stance. I tend to 'blade off' a bit too much, so I'm trying to maintain a more 'square' stance. Of course if I was shooting from cover I'd take whatever stance I needed to prevent exposing more of myself than necessary, but that's not 'target' shooting. Went through a bunch of SEB targets, and I can get three, quick shots into the upper box, all within a few inches of each other. Still can't quite do a couple of slower shots smack into the upper triangle after the first three, but almost all of them are either on the edge, or in the triangle.
Hmmmmm..."How Do I Get To Carnegie Hall?"......PRACTICE!
And I can drill the circles, boxes, and triangles along the sides without problem.
I also ran into a friend of mine I hadn't seen in several years. I never knew he was into shooting, so it was fun to catch up on old times, and do some gun talk.
