Default Took A Slide To The Thumb Today.

Nothing major, but it caused a stoppage. I was shooting from behind a panel with my strong hand and then stepped to my right, into a 1.90-handed grip. I will now practice wrapping my left hand from the bottom up, instead of just slapping it on and trying to make it fit. To the good, I only had 4 flyers out of 100, which included strong hand, weak hand, both, and movement.
Next range report when I screw something else up!

What a trooper to finish the course. Bet you won't do that again. Did you get someone to kiss the boo-boo?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Youch! No, nothing that bad, just a little blood blister (I feel a Dire Straits tune coming on) and a face to match.
