This Week's Indoor Range Visit

I've been fortunate of late to be able to get out to shoot frequently. Schedules change, so I'm taking advantage while I can. This week's trip to the indoor range turned was one of the more crowded times I've seen recently. In actuality, there weren't that many shooters there, but we were all assigned to one end of the range. I did see a ladder set up at the other end, so perhaps there were maintenance issues that forced that.

It's indeed rare that I find myself shooting while there multiple guns going off nearby, outside of a training class. At this older indoor range, with no sound dampening, the gun fire is an especially distracting experience. The guy next to me was firing off strings of around 15 or more rounds at a time. I quickly took to doing my shooting while he was reloading.

I mostly worked on slow shots focusing on the sights, my trigger finger, and trying minute grip changes. There's still some slight leftward drift I need to overcome, which seems to be a fairly recent, and frustrating, development in my shooting. After 150 rounds of slow fire I was ready to head back to the office, reinvigorated to face the rest of the day.

I still hope to be able to get in an outdoor range session later in the week to supplement my daily dry fire. All the practice will at the very least make the match days more enjoyable, even if I'm not winning any prizes.
