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!"
