Got some Sim training last Saturday

Relax.  When you tense up you perform much worse.

Some scenarios.  With actors on the screen.  Doing bad things.  I didn't shoot the bystander this time.  But it did highlight another known weakness.  When aiming at center mass I shoot the belly too much.  Belly shots are bad long term but not good if you want to quickly stop the guy trying to kill you.  No bueno.  Part of that is we often train to shoot too low on center mass targets.  I mean, look at this target, and where is the X ring

At least that one is above the diaphragm.  Some targets the bull is in the liver.

The other fun that was had was pepper popper point shooting.  That was fun.  And fast.  New personal best of 57 in 30 seconds for poppers.  Felt good, too.  Felt relaxed.  Bingo.  Never done point shooting with Sam before.

Sumdood involved in the November 5th Manassas gun show was there with a plethor of WWI era Dreyse, and some later ones.   This one was from a Yugoslav contract, that's an East German police gun, actually post WWII...  Tam would have loved it.  I know I did.
