...Not shooting very much any more and it bothers me. I've been hitting the weekends dead tired, nearly broke, in need of laundry and, for the last couple of months, not feelin' too good. But those are excuses. As is the extreme crowdedness of the local indoor range, though that would not bother me so much were it not for the occasional nitwit who behaves in a more casual manner than suits me. (It's a well-enforced cold range and they will eject offenders. Still, I have seen things that pushed even my extreme shyness towards yellin').
Nope, I dunno what it is but the struggle to find time is just not worth the payoff right now. I shoot well enough to defend myself and I'll never shoot well enough to compete seriously (haven't got the eyesight), so why bother? --Maybe I'll have a different opinion when the Eagle Creek outdoor range is open. Hope so.
