I am all bundled up against the cold wind and the few spots of rain, gritting my teeth and trying for that *pling* sound as lead hits steel. I am shooting a Beretta U22 Neos, probably for the last time at a match as the new gun Mr. C has bought for me will be here within the next few days.
I then have to practice everyday this week getting used to the feel of the new gun and the different positions of the magazine and slide release and the safety, as next weekend there is a match at the Kitsap range, and I prefer to look as though I know what I am doing.
There were quite a lot of *pling* sounds, but not as many as I was wanting to hear. Dang! I really wanted to shoot better than I did, but Mr. C reminded me that when the weather is crummy, just the better shooters seem to turn up at a match, so I was shooting against the best. I was fifth out of six shooters.
Mr. C did well, with first place in iron sight and first place in optical. We start out at 10 yards with 4 inch steel plates, then move back four stations with larger plates at each one.
We did have a fun time and I look forward to shooting my new gun soon.
