    New Year's Resolutions (shooting)

    OK guys, every year this one comes up - in some form!

    So - in 2006 what resolutions will you be making - as far as shooting aspects of life go???

    I am determined to put in more time practicing difficult drills - mostly on movement oriented stuff. To this end I want to reload more of the relevant ammo, to keep costs down and so enable a much higher thruput.

    If time and cash allow - also a halfways decent course of tac' shooting.

    Thus far I am hoping to minimize purchases of new guns, heck I have plenty - and so the funds perhaps more into actual shooting.

    Broad category - honing skills.

    Well, my new DSA FAL just arrived, so I won't be buying any new guns for a while
    I am planning on taking some more training classes this year...SouthNarc will be back in Denver next year, and I would also like to take a tactical shotgun course.

    So, looks like ammunition and training for me!

    Im going to practice shooting from cover.

    It has occured to me in various drills that few people ever take the time to shoot from cover. I dont mean the "barricade" or door frame scenarios, I mean something that one may actually have to do if everything goes south at a moments notice.

    For instance, how many people have ever shot from under a vehicle ? An SUV has a lot of clearance underneath it and using it can be an asset...especially when the BG doesnt give it much thought.

    A curb ? a curb can hide alot of body if the angle is right. Although its not ideal, its better than nothing and using one presents a much smaller target.

    Using a car door for cover ? An open trunk lid ? How about shooting while moving to better cover ?

    How about "rolling cover"meaning that using a stationary obejct such as a tree or even a barrel and moving oneself around it very carefully to present the gun on target while minimizing exposure ?

    Ive have used all of these techniques while playing paintball with great effect. While I understand that paintballs dont penetrate anything, the principles are still the same.

    Anyhow...
    Im going to make a consious effort to use more realistic scenarios.
