Another Try

Last week  shared my experiences regarding my first visit to a firing range. In short, I was pretty terrible. This was the result of my first attempt:

Well, I got a lot of really good advice, and this is what the result was from my visit this morning:

Still not great, even with there being more shots, the clustering seems to be better. I still seem to be firing low and to the right of center. The one shot way out by its lonesome on the upper left was when I intentionally aimed off to the side to see if I was pulling to the right when I fire.

A couple of thoughts on what made me happy about this visit. First, I was not the only revolver in the room today. Last week was funny in that the sound in the room was bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam…click BOOM…bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam-bam…click BOOM.

This week there was another six-gun being used in the lane next to me. Small difference I know, but it was nice to not be the odd-ball this week.

So, with practice, I think I will become a decent shot. To me this was a pretty good improvement. I am still not good enough to even begin to move toward License to Carry, but one step at a time.
