Your humble scribe shooting stuff

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSXb809jVSs  From last weekend’s pistol class. For a 300 pounder, that’s as close as I’ll ever get to ballet. Only mine is a ballet of BULLETS.  Or Danger! Or something. I don’t know.  Okay, I’m not graceful, but most ballet dancers won’t shoot you 42 times either. (and out of 275 rounds, I only missed a handful of shots all day, so at least my accuracy was good).

Looking at that video though, I’ve really gotten rusty over the last year. Lack of practice has made me slow and clumsy.  And it is a mark of shame for an experienced shooter to have to look at his holster to put his gun away, but in my defense, all my good range equipment was accidently buried in storage for the move, so I was using a nylon POS Uncle Mike’s. Making it through the day with that floppy hunk of junk without shooting myself in the left = WIN.

I love the fact you guys were using zombie targets. I used some well-perforated ones for Halloween decorations last year.

Ya know, Larry, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that “ballet” and “bullet” are only different by one letter. It makes perfect sense to me that well-coordinated target practice can look like a ballet…

Larry, shooting is a perishable skill, but you didn’t do bad at all. First reload was iffy but the second one was good.

And I say it again… ballet no, mambo for us of the highly gravitational pull.

At the risk of banishment, the only ballerina’s name I can actually think of is Rahm Emmanuel…

Dude, who was shooting while you were reloading the first time?

I loved the one with the New York reload… Shows that carrying two can be useful.
