Starting my year off well with the Appleseed at Port Townsend, WA. Predictions of rain, memories of laying in puddles of chilling water as rain started to soak paper targets, kind of a gloomy anticipation, but then the Moon was overhead, lots of light and no clouds until I drove into fog banks on my way up.
Drove in and saw two IITs setting it all up, bandmask and That Guy, they started talking about their work and left me behind on the beach... they have lives as divers and such.
The days were cold enough to tire everyone out, should drink more water when that happens. Three young men soaking all they could, Peter, Bo, and Benny, and one of them was spot on his respiratory pause, focus and squeeze that it taught an old dog a new trick. John A will have to really work at it, but I think he is a believer now.
I do thank the range for that heated room, to listen and tell the stories of April 19th, 1775.
I did see two, new to me, new technologies on the line - being very old school it is always interesting to see new ammunition, rifles and sights. The six steps for making the shot will never change and since we mentioned the Seventh Step, I am looking forward to seeing y'all on the line again with your friends and family.
