2010 Retrospective

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.

No need to work up any gumption for an Appleseed event. While the information is challenging, they start from scratch and quickly work up to the fundamentals needed for five hundred yard targets... even if someone has never held a firearm before. If you have questions, the people in your state section of their forum are friendly. It's a great all-volunteer program. www.appleseedinfo.org/smf
