Fortunately for my winter range trips, my son also plied me with a new sweatshirt and some long-sleeve t-shirts. These items were high on my wish list this year. Shooting practice requires more than just guns and ammo!
A frequent shooting partner gave me a copy of Mike Seeklander's "Your Competition Handgun Training Program." This training regimen for competitive shooting gets good reviews and I look forward reading it, and putting the tips to use. The aforementioned shot timer will come in handy for this too. The same friend also gifted a CR Speed "Versa" magazine holder. I currently use a couple of Uncle Mike's double mag holders. They work, but I've not been totally satisfied with them. I'll add the new holder to my competition belt and plan to eventually replace the double holders altogether.
Of course, one can't practice without ammo, so the gift certificate from Santa for use at a local outdoors store will help with that.
All these new shooting goodies, I might be running out of excuses for poor performance!
