As previously recounted, I’ve not been physically or financially able to shoot for some time.
New meds are helping be a little more mobile.
Recently, a new student appeared and offered to provide funds for the range, targets, ammunition and incidentals for me to teach him the ‘basics’.
And we’ve now had one classroom session, and two range sessions. Good stuff!
It does appear we will continue in this fashion.
But, there is a downside.
Weapons maintenance and cleaning.
There was a time, when apre-shooting, first the firearms would be cleaned, then other matters resolved.
In my absence from the range, and presence of other issues, I’ve fallen from the true faith. Forgive me.
Yesterday’s session showed me three things:
1. I need to practice more (e.g. dry practice)
2. A clean and appropriately lubed gun functions better – duh!
3. I lost my round-count on this recoil spring, and it need to be replaced.
And, sadly, there is one other element to the downside.
Long-dormant gun hormones have been re-awakened. I need to go shoot again. Soon.
