Practice, Practice, Practice...!


In order to be proficient with any fire arm you have, practice is all important.

It doesn't matter what manner of gun you own, in order to be of use to you in an emergency situation, you MUST learn to use and care for the weapon.

Skeet shooting is very good way to sharpen your skills at hitting a moving target. For those of you unfamiliar with skeet shooting , I've included a couple of videos on extreme target shooting.

Please pay close attention as there will be a test later!



Let me interject here, safety should be of highest priority at all times...! Always be sure that the person doing the loading and throwing of the target is NOT...I repeat, NOT in front of your weapon. That is, unless he's a politician or running for office in your county!



In the above example, safety again should be priority...! You want to be sure that no one is actually driving the target off the cliff! Of course, as in any situation there are exceptions, but I'll leave that up to the individual. We all have our own ideas on how to handle this particular possibility!



Now, in some of these cases you may want to wear some sort of head protection. Those golf clubs up side the unprotected head can definitely ruin your day, I hear!

You might want to consider if some of these folks look as though they are subject to heart attacks or seizures...as the sound of a shotgun going off on the driving range could lead to one or both of these occurrences!

Lesson's over! Let's get some coffee and sit outside for a bit...Oh, and duck if you hear the word "PULL!"

Good Morning My Special One, Living here in Tucson you hate to hear the sound of gun fire. You know someone is injured or dead. anyway is someone going to clean up that mess in the second video?

Hey JoJo...
I'm sure that someone will be along to remove the left over pieces of those target cars. Not me, but someone!

I know what you mean about the sound of gunfire in the city...bad sound!

Hey, sweetie...thanks for the visit today!


Hey Tony...
you just know if there is a way to have some fun misusing guns...the redneck will find it!

Thanks for the visit, buddy!

That second one looks like a clip from Top Gear - one of my favourite shows! Anyway, the fellow in it is one of the hosts of that show.

Good fun, Mister Hermit, sir...

Shade and Sweetwater,
