New Student…continued

God Bless John Moses Browning!

My new student and I went to a local indoor range this morning.  He did well.  Remembered the Four Rules and paid attention.
His motivation, however, is different.  He thinks he wants to be a Bulls-eye shooter.  I teach ‘Gun in the Home’ and CCW.  The foci are different.
And, because of illness and financial issues, I’ve not been shooting in over 2 1/2 years.  And it showed. *sigh*
We did have fun, though. (I think)  He just doesn’t get the same charge sending rounds downrange as most of the rest of us do.  He says it’s because he’s driven motorcycles at over one-hundred miles per hour, so it doesn’t compare.
Different strokes, I guess.
So, now I’ve three firearms to clean.  And, we’ll probably go back to the range in week or two.
No convert (yet) to IPSC or USPSA.  However…
As predicted, I did convert him to become a Browncoat!  He’s on the second run-through of my Dvds, and ordered his own copies!  Take THAT Alliance!

  8. Wow! He sure went through them much faster than I did! But, was he left with a population of plot bunnies? I had enough to appear on an episode of "Animal Hoarders." Sadly, their numbers are now shrinking due to neglect…. IOW: just total silliness….. – Tomi

The Four Rules

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

Certified EVIL!

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune

Penn Jillette

“F**k Civility. Hyperbole, passion, and metaphor are beautiful parts of rhetoric. The marketplace of ideas cannot be toned down for the insane.” - Penn Jillette
