I agree.

The quick-draw thing is like a game (duck hunt).

I believe trouble is a lot like the weather. If I'm expecting rain I bring an umbrella, but I don't deploy it unless it actually rains.

Same with a firearm.. my usual protocol is to avoid places that have a high instance of trouble, but if they cannot be avoided I bring a firearm. Luckily I have never needed it, though a few times I did have my hand ready to pull it.

And just like a downpour, umbrella or not, I retreat to a dry safe place.

Just stuff a couple of duct-taped basketballs under an XL shirt and call it good.

No, they have momentary switches that activate the laser dot for a split second when the hammer strikes it. They are normally OFF even with the batteries in (but they should be stored with the batteries removed to enhance battery life).

Great suggestions..

I have 2" squares of blue painters tape set up all around the house, and I sometimes "play" at moving thru the place and snapping a dot on each one.

Aim small, miss small.

Thank you, I will seriously considering this.

I have a CMMG conversion bolt for my AR that let's it shoot .22 long.

There are better versions, with varying degrees of expensiveness.

Naturally, the better the sim the more costly it is.

I have mixed feelings about them all in general, but, despite all the cons (which are many, logical & legit) some practice is better than none at all. Especially if you live in an apartment in the middle of some city.

The biggest drawback, in the case of the iTarget, the one I have, is you get one shot. You must rack the slide (or pull back on the charging handle) every time you shoot. You don't have to go all the way back, only enough to reset the trigger. But that one thing makes the experience very unrealistic and annoying.

That said, I do enjoy seeing how quickly I can clear my IWB holster and put an accurate shot on target. My fastest time with that so far is 1.4 seconds. Not great, but I can't seem to go any faster. So there's that.

I also get a kick out of practicing when the TV is on, taking aim and "shooting" between the eyes with a laser dot. That bugs the shit out of my wife, which makes it even more fun.

You got me looking into it. Found one I think, right here in NH too, called Ridgeline.

No. But I would like to.

So many things on my never-ending list of things to do.

I have been practicing with the 9mm mostly. There isn't a distance far enough in my home to use the .223 laser bullet. Maybe I will set something up outside someday, who knows..

And even the one dude He saved offered his own daughter to be raped by a gang of freaks, not because He thought Lot was "the last righteous man," but because Lot's uncle begged God to save him.

If you ask me, God should've told Abraham to pound sand.

Thank you, but when you're the "boss" what you really are is the servant of all. You may be "in charge" but ultimately that means you're in charge of blocking negativity, or ensuring peace, or smoothing out conflicting OCD between individuals.

If your team isn't happy, then performance is a struggle. And if all my guys quit on me then I'll have to do it myself.

That would suck.
