Through all of this craziness, shooting, hunting, reloading, etc has helped to keep me balanced. I have not been shooting nearly as much as I normally do, but am lucky to have a couple of great shooting spots within 2 hours from my home. I have made it a point to force myself to get out there, shoot a bit and reset the brain. I have also been working on projects that are simple and I can get done in a short amount of time. My guns are also the cleanest they have every been! I have found that even an hour break can be very helpful.
We don't get out as much as we used to, but my son has always enjoyed shooting with the family. Basically he looks at the front sight and when he wants to shoot he lifts his knees. I pull the trigger and he can hit a B29 target pretty regularly. Here is an old pic with him learning how to shoot with my Marlin 39 Mountie. No ammo in the rifle, we are just practicing the basics.
So be sure to make some time to get out there and shoot it is good for mind and the soul.
^^ this I’m sure of it! Great looking rig
So now 99% of the time I take a day off during the week. Range in the morning, nice restaurant with a couple glasses of wine after. Home, showered, guns away, mags re loaded, and ready for daddy duty when everybody gets home. I get out every 2-4 weeks.
Got cut loose to shoot for the first time in awhile on a recent Saturday, and it was less thrilling than getting out while everybody else is at work or school and making a day of it with the time limit being when she picks him up and gets home after 5.
