Thoughts on the Day

  • Today there were no “No Shoot” hostage or innocent bystander targets, only collaborators who got what they deserved.
  • Why is it that every time I go to the range I come away knowing that I need to go to the range more often?
  • My instinct, after shooting all-steel handguns like the 1911 and Cz-82 for years, is to bring the gun up out of the holster with a bit of force. That lighter weight plastic fantastic just about flies up.
    • I missed my support hand twice during the shoot today.  Luckily I stopped pushing up with my strong hand before it went vertical.
    • Time to practice my draw.  Again.
  • There were 98 shooters at the match today.  When I first going last fall, there were about 50, and people were astonished.  But remember, gun ownership is falling and the shooting sports are dying out.
  • Boo tried his hand at putt-putt golf for the first time this morning.  Apparently, a good time was had by all.
    • Someone please tell me that there are golf scholarships to good schools.
  • Many thanks to JayG and Weer’d Beard for giving me the name I used to describe the out-of-stater who was driving like a complete putz in front of me today – Masshole.

  1. There are golf scholarships to good schools. 😀

    I grew up with Phil Mickelson; one of my brothers was in his class all through grade school and high school. So yes, I do know that there are.

    There are *lots* of golf scholarships to good schools! But because of Title IX, men’s golf scholarships tend to crop up more frequently at schools that don’t care much about football…
