Lucky.......

She is doing better now, she should come home Monday. She woke me up last Saturday morning saying somehting was wrong and we needed to go to the hospital......well she was right. She had a Perforated Ulcer and had to have emergency surgery to fix the hole in her stomach! It's been a stressful week to say the least!

For me

My training is self taught. My range is my back yard. I would love to take a range safety course and maybe get certified in firearm safety so I could teach it. You may not believe it but I am extremely safe with any and all guns that are put in my hand. I am gonna try and get my CCL this summer. I know for a fact I will have to take a class so I will talk to my local court house for class scheduales and requirements.

Not a goddamn thing

I'm going to midnight shift in two days and will hopefully either be off work or will stay up a while whenever qual ranges are running in hopes of getting some damned trigger time.

When I get back, I'm going to renew my USPSA membership and get serious about action pistol and three gun matches.

Oh, and I'm going to tell Snake to get to Missouri for free firearms training.

Free firearms training. Sounds fun if I had the travel cash. It may be a shock to you guys but I aint rich and well I dont really have the means for travel. I was NOT born with a silver spoon in my mouth. As of now its takin all my damn time to go to college and plus I am looking for a part time job. I do work odd jobs but it takes most of my money just for gas to get to and from area's of work. Dont get me wrong I aint playin the woah is me act I am just tellin the damn facts. Sorry if it sound like I am pissed as I am not pissed just tellin the facts. Anyways if at all possible I would enjoy takin any and all training in firearms. Who knows someday in the future I may be spending range time with one or more gunslot members....even ebear and his AK now thats scary lol!

Dammit runs if your gonna deep core drill ebear do it somewhere else cant ya see I am shooting alien's and and jackalopes!!! Lol just kidding!!! wait.....what is that....runs?.....Oh my god is that.....*Stadic*.....*Radio Silence*............

Nevermind, too much competition in that area already. Just like Missouri.

No formal training

I got a couple of buddies that shoot competition and ask me to go all the time, but I got a teenage son and, therefore, no time. But I will go to the range and tear up some paper, or head out to the boonies and destroy eggs, melons, cans, jugs, etc.

It's amazing what just a .22 HP will do to a melon.

Sorry ss

I don't like wasting food either, believe me. Anyone that knows me will tell you that. But I like reactionary targets and the way I look at it, I'm feeding ants. lol
Also, the remains of this food laying on the ground draws in the varmints, so I use it as bait to cull some of the varmint population. :)

If you are doing that poor off, let me know, I will gladly help out a jarhead any day.

I wait until Halloween and drive around, shooting the ones people have on their porches. "Ooh, the rounds go through the pumpkins and into the kids inside the house. You're hurting the kids!!" So what. They're just as inconsequential as those orange globes. And more fun to replace.
