All Work and No Play...

... make for a dull blog.

As is obvious from the dearth of recent musings, I've had little time of late for the finer things in life; specifically good drink and shooting fun. Seasonably cold weather, the short days of winter, swim meets, and a busy work schedule have combined to put a damper in these activities for too long now. To help ease those woes, I took my lunch break yesterday at the local indoor range, instead of at my desk. I'm not a fan of indoor ranges, but sometimes exceptions are mandated.

When I arrived and started shooting I was the only person in the range. That shouldn't have been too surprising — it was as cold inside the range as it was outside. It didn't take me long to go through 100 rounds, but I didn't have a lot of time for "lunch" anyway. Even though shooting on the move or drawing from the holster is not allowed, I was able to get in some practice at varying distances, and even some strong hand/weak hand shooting. I made good use of the limited rounds and time.

Most importantly, it was some long-overdue fun. Now I just need to work on getting that pub visit in as well.
