I used to enjoy shooting a lot more than I do now. I'll admit that it no longer is much fun for me. Between my diminishing visual ability, arthritis in my hands making recoil less pleasant, and damage to both shoulders which makes it hard for me to hold even a lightweight handgun as steady as I need to be, shooting is just barely more than a chore. I still belong to a pistol club, and go to their to shoot at least once a month to try to keep my shooting skills at least up to a minimally acceptable level. But I do this because I rely upon my handguns for home and personal protection and don't want to get so out of practice that I might not be able to hit my target when I need to do so to defend my life.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”
