    Lousy trip to the range.

    On Labor Day, the last thing you will catch me doing is any labor. Off to the range I went.

    SIG 229 40, M&P 9, M&P 357, all low and left. All of 'em. Checked grip, stance, sight picture, no avail. Only one thing left.

    It never ceases to amaze me just how fast shooting skills disappear. Looks like a few snap caps and a million dry fires are in order. Again. Trigger jerking seems to creep up on me if I stay away from the range for more than a couple weeks. With the boy playing football, I haven't been to the range for awhile. As I may be looking at law enforcement career, I figured I'd better start shooting a 40 (yuck) as that is what is mandated. Turns out that I need to work on all of it.

    That'll really shake a guy's confidence, even if the groups were nice and snug.

    This happens with me as well when I slack on range time. You'll be alright. Easily corrected.

    It's just like (and more fun than) riding a bike. Just do a fair bit of dry fire, and get to the range as much as you can.

    Look at the bright side. A bad day at the range is better than a bad day at work.

    Or a good day at work.
