Not to buy any more guns - until at least I get another safe.

Shoot my guns and spend more time on the range. Been going about twice a month (unless I'm travelling). It's about guns, not computers.

Finish my book (on guns).

Don't make them. Just take it one day at a time. Grateful I had today...if I wake up...repeat.

1) Buy less guns
2) Spend far less on guns
3) Enjoy the ones I already own more
4) Become more active in competitive shooting
5) Attend a "shooting school" (already signed up for Gunsite Carbine Class in March)
6) Make more money (there is never enough, unless I adhere to #1 and #2)
7) Continue to run
8) Spend less time on the computer
9) Buy a new house so I can buy a new safe so I can safely store the 30 or so rifles that won't fit in my current safe.
10) Be more free with my emotions so that I can express my undying love for my dog Boulderdash.

I usually don't make one lest I fail and fall by the wayside.

I do find it entertaining and fun to have all that extra company at the gym, even if only for a month or so.


Good Shooting

your "goals" need to be meaurable, attainable, and specific

For example...more range time isn't quantitative. More like "go to the range a minimum of once a week and shoot at least 150 rounds"

make sure you write them down and review them (if they're important) If they're not that important, why bother at all???

sorry....this comes from a hyper sales rep, type "A"

1. Buy a Sig 220
2. Buy a safe (means more guns!) :D

1. Buy a trail gun. .44mag or .41mag or 10mm

2. Get off my butt and finally get my MA non-resident CCW. Practically shall issue for non-residents, but still alot of hoops to jump through.

3. Buy an AK to replace the one I stupidly sold before the AWB. Probably something affordable like an SAR1.

4. Join a gun club. Finding a safe place in the woods to practice is too far a drive. Skills are getting rusty.

keep shooting at least once a week,
shoot my rifles more: mainly my AR-15 and my .243 varmint rig, from various field positions and from bags.
get off my butt and drive the 2 hours to IDPA matches
buy a house


I'm assuming my goal of acquiring a "nice" 1911 will take care of itself..
