    You know, just about anyone can hit a bullseye. There's a certain inelegance in hitting the center of a target shot after shot. However, it takes an extreme amount of skill to place every shot of a 15yd course *just* outside the target. Yes, the target was not hit *once* but only the rank tyro would suggest this is a lack of skill. Rather, it is a feat of prowess to keep the perfect circle of that target exactly that way -- perfect.

    I was perfect today on the 15yd target with the .40.

    Glad to hear that! (but you know that some are going to say that without pics, it did not happen.)

    I had something like that happen the other day. An observer made note that the center of my target was not hit, then I pointed out the staple near the left shoulder of the image where I place 5.

    LMFAO!!

    I laughed SO hard when I read this creative writing. God damn that was hilarious. Kudos sir, kudos to you. :D

    Sorry to hear about your day at the range, but a bad day at the range is still better than being locked up, listed as "new fish" and getting an unexpected meat delivery. Right? :D:p

    Yeah, some of us old guys get plumb wore out trudging back and forth pulling and pasting targets, so we try to conserve them........:D

    Hey- that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!

    We all have our days. I swear, some days, I can hit the bull with my eyes closed. Others, I can't find the target, let alone actually hit it. :eek:


    But, that's why we practice. ;)
