I got there first.  
Delicious quiet with just the river gurgling by… 
Then one man showed up.  We’d written emails back and forth for a long time but never met.  Being students of modern Pistolcraft, we shot to improve our game.
We only used two targets.
No running or jumping or spinning around, 
Just drills working with sights and trigger press.  
…and had a very rewarding day.  
Sorry you missed it.

Pistol Gathering tomorrow, Sunday, May 26th
I made no announcement or plans for a match
I’ve been blue with too much to do.  Won’t you come too?
Just a chance to shoot and listen to the river.  Days like this are usually conducive to learning.  See you in the morning.
Today is a big gathering for a Billion Rising.
It’s about women against violence.
I thought I’d go, but there is so much hostility toward the word “gun,” I think I’ll go shooting instead.  
It’s frustrating.  I love my mom, sister, wife, three daughters and two granddaughters.   I want them to live and not be afraid.  Fortunately for me, most of the women in my life shoot or at least concede it’s a good idea to stop someone who’s attacking them.
Unfortunately for women, they seem caught up in a style of some sort, where it’s popular to hate the very thing that finally made them equal to a 250 pound man with rape on his mind, yes Mom, a Gun.
Food for thought, peace and love for this beautiful weekend.  Paul

Another New Graduate 
and yet another Brown Bag Special
You should have been there.
This Gentleman was no Turkey.  He went from never having a gun in his hand to moving under pressure and hitting targets quickly.  He “Got” the general thrust of our course; Safety, Mind Set and Situational awareness.  Pulling the trigger is the easy part.
Firearms Field Day to be Announced Soon!!!

I’ll make no attempt to call last Sunday a Match
But we sure had fun.
There were three of us,
Wayne, Vern and me
I was relieved to see my friend and ex-boss, Wayne Faddis shot well; nothing worse than pretending to be impressed when you’re not.  He may be built like a fire plug but he moves and he hits.
Vern Shot well too.  In fact we all did once we got started.
I like to begin with a real (fake) scenario before anyone has shot.  This way we attack the problem cold, like it would be on the street or in our home late at night; but we did some warm up drills today just to knock the cobwebs off.  None of us shot particularly well, but we kept the same course of fire and just worked on it.  Pretty soon we were doing extremely well.  Sometimes it pays to stay with the same drill until you get good at it.
Sorry there are no more pictures, no one seemed to care enough to take them.

Then last Tuesday Gary Baura, Command Sergeant Major, Special Forces retired, stopped by to visit his old friend Enrique.  An impromptu training began and we shot all morning and Wednesday  too.  Gary was fun to be with and we joked and learned things we didn’t know.

Two terms in Vietnam, life in the Army with Special Forces, Contractor in Iraq, and he seemed happy to be retired.
Eddie shot best I think.  Enrique and I did okay too.  
No pictures of Edgar or I but we don’t care, we shot Wednesday full of holes too.  I guess the cool thing was all of us had some Police/Military background and still enjoy the sport of shooting.
