So the other night was my first night in the pistol league (like a bowling league with REALLY fast balls and no pins).
Ask me how I did...
I TOTALLY SUCKED!!!!
Here's how it started:
I started out lame
Then I bit.
Then I stunk.
Then I sucked.
Then I blew.
Then I totally sucked.
(Please no sexual references in the comments, or I will change them to your detriment, and my evil humorous pleasure. However, feel free to disparage my shooting "skills" all you wish.)
In my defense, I would have fared ok in the rimfire (.22) competition.
I wouldn't have even come close to winning, but I think I would have had a moderately acceptable score (for me).
However, my sucky junk-a## WINCHESTER T-22 target ammo misfired on me several times, costing me points I needed badly.
Next time I'm using Eley or Jagd-Und Sport. I will have to do research: Yay!
In the center-fire (.45 ACP for me and most) I just plain choked, sucked, flaked, spazzed, whatever.
I did fair in practice the night before, not stellar, but I would have just been in last place, not lapped 700 times like I was.
We shoot one slow-fire, and two time-fired targets for rimfire and centerfire each, 50 feet, one-handed (which I never do, until now). Timed is 2 sets of 5 shots, 10 seconds per set.
10 shots per target for a possible total of 300 points.
Most of the real shooters were WELL over 200, and some real close to 300 (270-280ish).
However, mostly unperturbed, I shall carry on so I can PROUDLY be in last place and the real shooters say, "Wow, you don't totally and unequivocally suck-a## at shooting, CUG".
I'd settle for that....
I still had fun, though.
The silver lining: I need to practice, practice, practice! :)
