Practice, Practice, Practice!

I hadn’t been to the shooting range for 3 weeks so decided I’d better practice. Besides it was a dreary afternoon so might as well spend it doing something fun. I practiced putting into play some new things I learned during the 8-hour CCW class. Changed my stance to the defense mode and kept both eyes open. Our instructor told us to aim for center mass (versus the bullseye as in target shooting) and to line up the end of the gun to the center mass area with BOTH eyes. This allows you to keep peripheral vision during a stress event.

 

I continue to be amazed at the number of “senior” women who are learning how to shoot. Both my “Beginner’s Handgun” and “Concealed Carry” classes (which were full) had half the class with women over 60. It’s a sign of the times!!

I have a new hobby

After talking with several of my neighbors, I decided to take up a new hobby – shooting. I Googled-searched for info on guns; watched lots of videos comparing brands/styles; took a beginner’s handgun course; rented my two top choices several times; then selected a Glock 19 Gen 4. I’m still getting the hang of it, but at least I put most of the ammo near the center.

Granny get your gun!

Have you heard that Obama has been the top salesman for gun manufacturers. Every time he tries to take guns away from a specific group, or tries to ban a specific weapon, then gun sales increase. It angers me when I hear someone want to control gun ownership and they have bodyguards surrounding them. YOU FIRST!!!! Get rid of their gun-carrying bodyguards THEN tell us we have to give up guns.

The last four months have seen record background check requests. (These numbers don’t indicate gun sales since a person can buy multiple guns with just one background check.)

  • MAY: 1,580,980 – an increase of 100,000 over May 2014
  • JUNE: 1,529,057 – an increase of 150,000 over June 2014
  • JULY: 1,600,832 – an increase of 200,000 over July 2014
  • AUGUST: 1,745,410 – an increase of 200,000 over August 2014

Earlier this summer, Obama made a statement that he would like to “TAKE” guns away from anyone receiving Social Security if they “can’t balance their checkbook”!

I decided it was time for me to arm myself because America is becoming a really crazy place, so I signed up for a beginner’s training course at Blackwing Shooting Center. Class size was limited due to indoor shooting lanes, so there were only 10 of us taking the 3-hour course. Six of the 10 were like me … senior citizens. Glock 19 Gen 4

I’ve done LOTS of research, watched LOTS of videos comparing brands, and rented my final two choices several times to make sure I liked and could handle the gun comfortably. I passed the background check and now am a proud gun owner. I’ll be in the statistics for September!
