New Year’s Resolutions – Or Something Like That

clean-upWow. I cannot believe how much I have neglected this blog.

Honestly, I enjoy sharing my experiences and thoughts with you, my loyal readers. (Loyal? Hell, I suppose if you’re reading this, I have nothing but a vestigial RSS feed to thank.) And my list of excuses reasons why I haven’t posted more in recent months is extensive and valid. But, as my counselor once said, we all end up doing what we really want to do.

So, do I want to do this?

Hell yes.

Okay then, here we go.


For the new year, I decided to make a small list of the things I would like to accomplish in 2014. So, here they are.

I list them as Goals, for lack of a better word. Over the next while I will lay these out in further posts.

Goal Zero: Post more to the blog.


Goal 1: Shoot in a match once a month minimum

Goal 2: Get my son to compete in USPSA and/or GSSF

Goal 3: Practice more, both live fire and dry fire

These are pretty attainable, and just require my dedication to the sport.

Goal 4: Rank up in USPSA

This requires some additional planning, which I will lay out in detail in future posts.

Goal 5: Start competing in another shooting sport besides pistols

Rifles, 2-gun, 3-gun, clays? Who knows?

Goal 6: Attend a blogger shoot or other organized event

This requires someone having one, and inviting me. No problem!

And now, for the BHAGs.

Goal 7: Buy a CMP M1 Garand

Goal 8: Begin reloading ammo

These will depend on my budget for the year. So far it looks promising.


Stay tuned.

    The only persons who would waste their money on a “U.S. Caliber .30 M1, are people who were never forced to carry one and dedicated collectors. My feelings toward them were summed up in a book I read once, where the fellow wrote,” I want to have one so I can Pee down the barrel every morning when I wake up.”

        “U.S Rifle Cal. .30 M1” Is what I was taught to call it by a very heavy handed Marine Drill Instructor. It would have truly been, “The worlds greatest battle rifle” if The Springfield Armory had left the design alone and produced the rifle with a detachable box magazine the way Garand meant it to be.
