Bought my very own first gun back in 64, been practicing ever since. One of these days I will get good and then I can just shoot for the fun of it but right now I'm still learning.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.

How much studying is enough?

It depends on how challenging the test is...
Mindset - Skillset - Toolset. In that order!

Attitude and skill will get you through times of no gear, better than gear will get you through times of no attitude and no skill.

Personally, . . . I figure with any luck at all, . . . St. Peter will point to a wall of lock boxes, . . . tell me to deposit mine before going in.

Honestly, . . . all joking aside, . . . I hope when my time comes, . . . I'm in church, . . . or out shooting / hunting / reloading, etc.

Until then, . . . every chance I get, . . . that is both shooting and training: sometimes reading a book, taking a class, competetion, etc.

May God bless,
If you can breathe, . . . thank God!
If you can read, . . . thank a teacher!
If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a Veteran!
