We went target shooting at the range a couple of days ago.
When I started out, I was not hitting the targets very well at all. The pistol targets were set up 10 yards away. I did not have any trouble loading, I did fine with that part. But I did not do well hitting the targets until it was almost time to go. I was barely starting to have fun but I was nearly out of bullets.
So we restocked and went again the next day. I did much better than the previous day.
Due to time and budget reasons we stopped going for a few months. Ammo is not cheap and the entrance fees also cost a few dollars. Like any skill, handling a gun and shooting at targets needs constant practice. I think we would need to go a lot more frequently than before.
