The year is winding up, and I am a little low on blog fodder, so I might as well put up a year end retrospective.
This year I purchased a snub nosed pistol of the S&W 640 variety, and a Ruger 10/22 for the heck of it so I'd be ready for Appleseed training if I work up the gumption for that.
I bought a lot of ammo and, more importantly USED it. It had been an unofficial new years resoltion to practice more, and I did. For a few months I was going to the range every Thursday. I need to do that some more in the coming year. Plus non range practice at home. Dry fire drills and, importantly, holster drills.
I got some more official pistol training this year, and hope to be back again in 2011. It'd be nice to try to actually go to 3 classes this coming, so let's make THAT the quasi-resolution.
Possible gun purchase for 2011? I've been toying with that 100 year anniversasy celebration to get a new Combat Commander 1911. Well, new to me. It seems I should probably buy an older series 70 model and get it modified to suit my needs.
What else is on the shopping list? Not much. I'm not in a hurry to get a lot more. But opportunities do come along and fall into one's lap.
