Practice days turn out to be matches. Matches end up as learning days… It’s all taken in stride here at La Garita Pistol Club.
Our regular friends, Walter, Eddie and Luis showed up to continue their long standing practice of being in shape.
These gentlemen make the scenario as real as possible. After push-ups and attendant heart rate increase, shooting under pressure feels more like the real thing.
When we began the warm ups I realized this was going to be one of those days that I didn’t shoot well. But you can’t let that let you down. It makes up for those days you can’t miss. Training and practice make you good all the time. I’ve been lazy.
Walter is a Body Guard. These guys are always together, a team. They included me in their practice as usual, and I always learn. As you can see in the picture above, Walter has stepped around and pushed Eddie behind him.
Here, the principal is on the left. Luis politely but forcefully pushes the man on the right aside, and steps around to defend the principal. These men train (dry fire) at least a half hour a day, every day.
Those of you who don’t come to shoot once and awhile are in danger of getting rusty. … and as we all know, rust never sleeps.
