Mr. Tea and I had the opportunity to go to the range this morning. Gotta love those impromptu dates!
I became rather frustrated with myself after the first 40 rounds. At the range we go to, you have the ability to post two targets up at 7 yards. I had one straight in front of me and what slightly to my left. I could hardly get a shot to hit the black on the target that was straight in front of me, but was fine on the target to my left. I was like "WTF???" Straight ahead, I was shooting low, but turning slightly to my left, was having nice tight groupings. I put my gun down and took a step back and breathed. Stepped back to the bench and tried again. SAME FREAKING THING! Okay, took another breath and adjusted my stance. Somewhat better, but still not what I usually do at the range.
Of course, while all this is going on, my sweet Mr. Tea* kept telling me to breathe and not worry about it. I appreciate the sentiment, but I NEED to figure out what I am doing different and correct it. LOL
I am still not 100% what was going on, but I angled my stance more and was finally able to get most of my last 10 rounds into the center of the straight on target. At least I ended on a better note, although I feel I need to spend some more time at the range to work "this" particular kink out.
**I have mentioned before that I am my own worst critic, but I honestly know I can do better than what I was doing today!
