Practice . . .

. . . makes perfect.

Well, not quite perfect. There's more than one hole, and the head shot is a bit off center. But, it'll do for an old guy out of practice.

I haven't done much pistol shooting in the last few years, so I've begun to practice a bit. My hand isn't as steady as it used to be, but for rapid fire at 7-1/2 yards, this target wasn't too bad. That's eight shots in the "X" ring, and one tossed upstairs just for the heck of it.

To our European and U. S. liberal firends . . . sorry, but we do that kind of stuff over here. And, luckily, our armed forces men and women don't need to be shown which end of a weapon is the business end.

Shot with: Custom M1911 Colt . 45 ACP
