By the time you folks read this, I should be back in Carolina, with the Memsahib and cats and dog. Time to go back home and end my little vacation.
Yesterday, I had a chance to go to a indoor range with Ms. Nancy. We went to The Range, just outside of Fredericksburg VA. (I think they are more properly in the town of Stafford)
Not a bad range, all in all. The staff were friendly and it beat standing out in the wind.
Miss Nancy and I worked on developing muscle memory and learning where all the parts of her weapon are. We did multiple magazine changes, malfunction drills as well as working on some of the basics of marksmanship and safety. Now to be honest with you I would love to be able to say that due to the keenness of my intellect and my skills as an instructor that Miss Nancy became a skilled and proficient marksman, but again, I didn't do that much. I am one of those folks who think that there are some folks that have a natural talent for various things. Miss Nancy happens to have a talent for shooting. She just needed a tweak here and there, more suggestions than anything else. In the meantime, she very happily blew the better part of the 10 ring out of a B-27 police silhouette target with her XD. I left her with a few ideas on how to include a flashlight in her shooting and told her to practice what she had learned until I could come up again in March. I am looking forward to seeing how she has progressed in that time.
