    Some Days Are Better Than Others

    I just got back from an early morning trip to the range. I only shot 150 rounds between my M&P9c and 22/45 Mk III. I only shot at 7 yards today but, for the life of me, I couldn't shoot anything better than 4" groups with either gun.

    Yup. I have my off days as well. It's odd, some days I can just about instinctively hit everything I look at, and others... well... not so much.

    Even the pros have bad days.

    we all have an off day.

    recognize it as such and get home early.
    no sense trying to figure out if its multiple issues and it may
    be that in trying to figure it out that you end up ri-inforce bad shooting.

    Perhaps 1 less cup of coffee before hitting the range?

    Just like everything else in life! Just don't let it carry over to your next range trip.

    Yup sounds like a day where you pack it in early and save your ammo for another day

    Larger targets! For those days when you can't hit the broad side of the barn!

    You say you shot 4 inch groups at 70 yards? I wouldn't complain.

    You should be ashamed! I'm just playing man your fine. Just keep shooting more, and you will begin to miss more!

    Sometimes the odds are in our favour sometimes not. Try as I might, I have never had a perfect day at the range. Even so, I am just happy I can go to a range and shoot. That is what I am most thankful for.
