Rough run, but here it is in its unedited glory. These weren’t staged malfunctions either, so, take that for what it’s worth. A couple things to note here, some of which were happening in my head.
- Normally I would switch to a pistol if my rifle goes down. But, I’m having to weigh the distance of the target against my ability to hit consistently at said distance. So, several times here I knew I could charge a round and get a good shot on target with a rifle, faster than I could maybe get a pistol round on target.
- At one point after several malfunctions, I went full retard and abandoned trying to charge the rifle because I realized I could smoke the target with a pistol (it was within a reasonable distance). The repetitive clearing of the rifle beforehand certainly had me in “fix rifle” mode rather than “shoot target faster” mode, hence the hiccup.
- By the end of it, I was totally in my head, angry with that stupid mag and threw two SIMPLE pistol shots. Yes, that steel is small and it wasn’t MY pistol, but one should NEVER miss at that distance, even on a smaller target. No excuses.
This is what rust looks like and why training to a high standard is important. But not just occasionally - it must be trained CONSISTENTLY. Even a few weeks away from the range and this crud crept in. So if you’re going weeks or months... chances are you need to give yourself a check up to see what happens to your brain and skills when things don’t go according to plan. #safetyfirst #keepitreal #respectfirearms #2a #shallnotbeinfringed #repealthenfa #thesecondprotectstherest #concealedcarry #maga @trexarms @lucastrexarms @gunownersofamerica @lonestargunrights @national_rifle_association - 3 hours ago
