    5 days ago to a firearms range to train.
    2 days ago to my basement range to train with a CO2 powered BB pistol.
    ~2 hours ago spending an hour practicing CCW type draw and dry fire as well as magazine reloads.
    I'll be back to the firearms range tomorrow afternoon to train.

    I do draw and shoot at the bad guys in action movies. Only killed one TV until I remembered to clear the weapon before the movie starts!

    Been a few times since the holidays. Went shooting with my mom. Took an ex-girlfriend of mine who told me that due to her new son, she wanted to know how to handle a firearm. That's about it. Been about 3 weeks. But the main issue is that I just restarted as a full-time student so time and money are in short supply.

    LOL Never had a problem with it. I'm on good terms with almost all of them. She's the second ex of mine that I've tought to shoot. Teaching the women I know to handle a firearm is a priority of mine for a few reasons.

    Just wait until you come home a little later than she expected. You sneak up the stairs, get undressed before you enter the bedroom, and as soon as you're in, you hear that CLICK of the double action revolver.
    You're screwed one way or the other!

    Well, seeing as how JD and I went together and he posted yesterday that it was 5 days since we went it's been 6 days by today's post count.

    We enjoy shooting together!

    The range I go to is all outdoors and it's been colder than h-e-doublehockeysticks here. Been over a month for me.

    Yesterday. I had to get a good session in before I got really swamped with taxes. We did shoot some neat exploding targets. They are supposed to be for scaring crows but I think that is just a marketing thing.

    It will be a couple of months before I get to go again. But then it will be a few times a month to make up for it.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
