I guess you could use my first El Presidente to prove Rottweiler's quote; SO explained the CoF and I went all out on my first string, hitting precisely thrice. Wrote it off to nerves and seven years of rust from having not shot anything since Iraq. My second string was better, but the third I made myself slow down to what I felt was a glacier's pace and apply my fundamentals, lo and behold I scored better overall.
I was the youngest guy there by at least two decades, and I kinda expected to be snubbed and meet a lot of elitist attitude but I have to say that EVERYONE there was really awesome about getting me up and running, and being comfortable with shooting (not getting shot at helped) in these games. I can't wait to get back out; I'm hooked and wishing that I'd started it ages ago.
