Personal Protection and Recreational Goals for 2006
Well it's about time someone started a thread like this. I'll try to let someone else make the Merry Christmas thread.
What are you hoping to acquire, learn, and accomplish in 2006?
From a personal protection standpoint, I am trying to find a way to take a local intermediate refresher and advanced handgun course that uses force on force training, and a carbine course, all next summer. This is actually going to be very difficult with recent problems surfacing in my personal life but I'm hoping for the best.
From an academic and recreational point of view, I will be learning how to reload next year hopefully. I need more manuals and a scale first.
I hope to acquire an AR15 next year and learn the basics of how to use it. I've no aspirations of being a sharpshooter just yet, I just want to learn how to not shoot myself in the foot with it! I told myself I'd get my mitts on an AR15 before 2008 and next year will be the year I think.
I also aspire to get my mitts on an XD in .45 ACP if possible, and will try to take the plunge and get an AK47 clone if the opportunity arises. I wanted to do that this year but couldn't find one that wasn't a Century Arms import. I may have to swallow my nervousness and get a CAI anyway.
