Thank you... I appreciate it. The funny thing is a have a real good buddy of mine who is a former Marine and I'm a retired "Coastie" (we bust on each other all the time!)

Anyway, he razzes me all the time about sitting on my butt behind a desk for a whole career (I was a Yeoman doing military paperwork, ID cards, personnel records & payroll, etc...). I was not required to continue any firearm qualifications after bootcamp - it's just the way it was. Pick your rate (MOS), chose your fate, as we always said! So, my buddy wants to help "sharpen up my skills" next time at the indoor range. I teased him back, "Can a Marine really show a Coastie how things are done?" LOL!!!

Lastly, that target was just an 8 x 11 piece of paper, shot from 30 feet away. I was a little rusty, but was trying to regain my focus and concentration...
