FAMILY DAY

My cousin Gordon, a new NRA instructor and Retired CEO of Mil-Comm Products

My cousin Gordon, a new NRA instructor and Retired CEO of Mil-Comm Products Gun Care Systems, here on sale at La Garita Pistol Range and Roberto Vargas Hardware in Atenas.  Also available at better gun stores.

Cousin Gordon, his wife Carrie and son Jason Furlong came to visit a couple weeks ago.  They played their guitars, sang and had a mini tour of Costa Rica.  I took them to Poas, Jaco and naturally La Garita Pistol Club for a little target practice.

This was the day they would turn in their car and stay near the airport for an early flight.  We were finishing up the last thing we wanted to do this trip.

My nephew, Jayson Furlong took to his gun like he’d been shooting all his life.  If he ever gets as good as his guitar playing, the world around him will be a safer place.

This is where our finger goes... building in muscle memory takes time.  I wish I had him for a week.

This Last Sunday of the Month there were 6 of us Shooting. What fun!

Enrique with his Glock 40 cal. It was good to have him Shooting with us.

I asked Enrique if he felt like making a course of fire for our Monthly La Garita Pistol Club meeting.  He said, “Sure.”  So I had no idea what he had in mind when I arrived a few minutes before 8:00 on Sunday.  Soon we were setting up targets and positioning them where he wanted.  He explained a few things he’d learned recently and added them to our course of fire.

We kept time and ran the course a few different ways, then went over to another range to shot at the Zombies

There were two brothers, a couple and Enrique and me.    Wait…. there’s more!

With the price of ammo and the time I take off  from quiet Sunday mornings with my wife; I try to keep these meets to 50 rounds but it tapers off till one by one, we run out of ammo.

Over the last couple years, I’ve seen new groups meet, become friends and drift off back to busy lives.  It’s fun when a few of us meet the Last Sunday of every Month and enjoy each others company.  I didn’t shoot particularly well this day but I’ve had great days and medium days all my life; I guess that’s life.  I guess LIFE is why we  work on our game; this is a Defensive Pistol club, after all.  But it’s become a sport for most of us too.  So if you want to improve, practice your dry fire diligence and come to these meetings whenever you can.

Older Brother Dillon; serious, smooth, fast and good hits.  Their father's no slouch either.
