    Dear Employee at the Range...

    Dear Employee at the Range,

    Today I was shooting, and you came over and talked to me and showed me a few things and gave me some pointers.

    I focused on what you taught me, and my shooting improved very noticeably. You helped me.

    Unfortunately, by the time I finished shooting, you had gone home for the day. Another guy who was working there saw me looking around, and asked if he could help me. I said I was looking for you, and he told me you had just left. So I made him look at my "before" and "after" targets, and I explained that you were responsible for that improvement, and that I wanted to show you and thank you and tell you that you had made a difference. He told me he was happy to hear that, because he's your boss. I hope he heaps praise on you and gives you a bonus.

    But, on the off chance that you're here, too, I wanted to thank you.

    Sincerely,
    The Lady in Lane 8

    To anyone else reading this: DFW Gun Range. I like them, and I recommend them.

    I'm a very new shooter, so I doubt the pointers would help too many people here. He helped me with my grip (much more stable) and taught me to squeeze the trigger with just my finger and not my whole hand and wrist, if that makes sense (in medicalese, isolating the proximal and distal interphalangeal joints on my finger, instead using of my whole hand), which made me stop shooting low and to the left. The results were pretty dramatic.

    And I'll bet he walked past seven guys who needed just as much help just to get to the lady in lane 8, lol.

    Good post. It's nice to appreciate the little things one does for someone.

    Very nice. It's amazing how many folks don't realize how much it means to an employee to be recognized -- even with a simple thank you. Telling the guy's boss was a stroke of luck.

    No no, you want the "Missed Connections" section on your local Craigslist website.

    Go to dfwgun.com, click "contact us" and leave him a message and perhaps a pic of you accomplishment. E-mail, it's a wonderful thing.

    Been there several times myself. The new DFW Gun Range is a very nice indoor range.
    Also impressed with the employees and their fees are very reasonable.

    You know that Tuesday night is ladies night, ladies shoot free

    A lot of new shooters tend to grip the gun tighter as they squeeze the trigger with their ;In Redneckese "Booger HooK" one way to help that is thru dry firing annd gripping the gun while squeezing the trigger without having to worry about recoil
