    My First time at the Range

    Got my new Beretta PX4 Storm , got the ammo, protection, sign the papers, paid the fees .......and start shooting.
    It felt pretty good, confident and proud of myself , until one of the range instructors politely (remember i was the one with the gun!!) says, mam ... if you want to actually hit the target i can teach you for 40 dollars!!!

    Nothing wrong with hiring a good instructor.......if he put you on target than consider the money as an investment.....

    Good way to look at it!! I'm lucky enough to have some excellent IDPA shooters at my range every weekend, who are happy to help me with my shooting techniques. Its now been 6 months since I first got help from them, and WOW what a difference. There's nothing wrong with asking for a little help. "Stupid questions are only those that go unasked."
