Desert shooting, here i come!!!
New Goal: So far im a good shot. But that's in at a closed gun range, not a deep woods challenge. There will likely be predator species on or near my chosen land. I want to be proficient under pressure also.
Progress Report: I have been practicing with my 9mm and .22 hand guns. I cheat a little with the green laser on my 9mm but realize that I need a lot more practice with my 'tiny' North American Arms .22. I have only been shooting at small targets at close range (less than 15 feet) but need to set up actual targets to get accurate feedback on my aiming skills. Still no professional training at this point. For the time being, I'm focusing on my truck battery bank.
New Goal: I will set up targets at various distances on my property and learn to shoot. I have had my concealed carry permit in New York for 8 years but have never had a gun to carry...until last month. Now I need training. I am also going to contact one, or more, local instructors for additional training.
New Goal: Increase accuracy and speed with my handguns.
