My thanks to the shoot boss and all the instructors.
1) they were over the top OCD as far as safety goes, just the way I like it.
2) good instruction. Unfortunately, I'm not a good student or I have a limited number of good shots in a day. I had a higher score at the beginning than the end. Maybe. I could see how integrating the new stuff I learned could result in a lower score for a while, but ultimately my ceiling is going to be higher.
3) good people. There were a couple of teenagers on either side of me, one made rifleman. (His dad didn't, bragging rights for sure!) Both seemed like really great kids.
4) good history. There were some [email protected]
old geezers on the road from Concord. "Unhappy it is though to reflect, that a Brother's Sword has been sheathed in a Brother's breast, and that, the once happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with Blood, or Inhabited by Slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous Man hesitate in his choice?"
I'm going to practice what I've learned and return for some Sunday shoots. If I make rifleman, I'm going to treat myself to another rifle to try qualify again with. And so on...
Seriously, I recommend this program.
