    For 2003, I am hereby resolved to..

    1. Put in more range time.

    2. Attend at least 2 gun shows.

    3. Earn my CC permit.

    4. Create a larder with essentials i.e foodstuffs, water, ammo, first aid kit, etc. along with a 'bug out' bag.

    5. Lay in 500 rounds for each weapon that I own.

    6. Attempt the conversion of at least 2 Anti's or fence sitters by both word and example.

    I don't make "New Years Resolutions." I just do what I gotta do.

    1. I'm not going to make any New Year's resolution.

    2. I'm going to put in more range time.

    3. I'm going to get my other High Standard Victor to work right.

    4. I'm not going to buy any more Pythons. I'm not, I'm not, I'm not!

    5. I'm really and truly not going to make any New Year's resolutions—and I mean it this time, too!

    1)Introduce on new person to shooting who goes out and then buys a gun.
    2) Get CCW permit
    3) Convince somebody there is a market for an affordable AUg in the U.S.

    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).

    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

    If ya' really wanna make resolutions...

    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 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.
