Lady 3-Gun Slot
I’ve got my slot for Lady 3-Gun!! I’m #28 -I’m so excited!
Even more exciting actually, is that the event is well on the way to selling out. Registration has been open for about 72 hours as of this writing, and I see name #193 on the squadding list. I’m so happy to be able to participate in this “First” for women’s shooting sports!
It also is going to give me a boot in the pants to shake off my winter Blah’s and get geared up for Spring shooting! I’ve only got one 3-Gun match under my belt so far, so I definitely need to get out there and find some club matches. There are plenty of pistol matches, but so far the nearest 3-Gun matches are almost 3 hours away. Looks like I’ll be taking some long weekends LOL! Anybody want to come with me? I snore though – be forewarned.
There is so much that I don’t know yet, and so much I need to work on. I have no idea how to properly use a sling… and will I even need one? I’ve not yet fired slugs with my shotgun. I need to get a better scope for my rifle. I need to work on shotgun reloads —- and settle on a technique for that matter. Now that my M2 Baby has come back all pretty and smooth from her trip to the gun spa , I have no excuses.
The Youtube videos and demonstrations for shotgun reloads are legion. What I originally learned was a weak-hand reload, working by feel coming up from underneath. But, I’m admittedly not very good at it. I did at least go ahead and order a nine-pack of 12 ga. dummy rounds to practice with, but I haven’t even decided if I want a strong hand or weak hand reload if I’m going to try to switch. What I really need for shotgun is a THIRD hand, but since that isn’t an anatomical reality, and I don’t think Brownell’s carries bionic spares, I’ll just have to make a choice. LOL
Then there is my physical condition. I recall feeling quite weighed down with all that gear last summer. Perhaps my first step to getting ready should be to get back into a walking and/or weight program. I mean apparently dragging the laundry up and down two flights of steps isn’t enough. Hours in the day — can I order some more of those, too? How about Ambition? (The Christmas tree just got disassembled and put back in the basement tonight – LOL, don’t judge me!)
So much to do, and that means more “Parts and Pieces” too. Gawd, the parts and pieces to this sport…..
… but more on that later.
