I loved the end comments about just getting out and shooting matches.

I think I'm a competitor more than a shooter, and I'm a shooter more than a gun guy. If I can't compete I'm not all that interested in shooting, so if I'm not shooting then why do I need guns outside of home defense. Meh..........

What I'm getting at is I feel a breed apart from anyone at a range, and clearly Mr. Letham is a breed apart from me, but FOR THE LOVE OF GOD I hand fed my Army Reserve Unit an opportunity to go shooting, and offered them (I have command authority) a DAY OFF from a monthly drill to replace it with shooting a local Glock Challenge Match.

I only needed TWO of any of my 160 soldiers to go to the match. I supplied ammo, and guns. All they had to do is show up and register.

I only had ONE taker. So we didn't have enough to make a "Guardian" Division Team. With me carrying the Team we would won easily. My other guy that went did place 14/30. First time out, first time with a Glock, and my soldier placed MID PACK against other emergency responders and military. The pickings is easy if you enjoy shooting. I won, so if we had a third shooter he would only needed 29th/30 to have won as a team.

OH...... TOO BOOT!!!!!!!!!!!! There was an active duty Marine working as an RSO at the match. He was standing RIGHT THERE. I tried to get him to shoot with us as a team (we'd still qualify as a mixed Guardian Team), but NOPE!!!!!!!!! I had the pistol and ammo RIGHT THERE. He's standing RIGHT THERE, there's the range RIGHT THERE. Didn't want to compete................


Folks are afraid to lose.
Before there was Polymer there was Accuracy
