No excuses at all, I simply don't shoot enough.

If I shoot badly (particularly my CZs or Ruger) the excuse I most often give is that I have bad shooting technique.

However, I think we can all agree that it was the guns....

I'm better at talking and writing about guns than I am at shooting them.

"Crappy-arsed rifle."

However, it's more often than not, accurate, when that excuse is used. At least back when I bought mostly cheap rifles.

When I'm shooting pistol targets at ten yards with a .45, I've been known to grumble about the wind. Might as well make it a big one.
