Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


Learning is Occurring

After my last range session, I did a bit of research, and decided to try holding the gun differently. The pro of the new grip is that I seem to be more consistent and it's much more comfortable and doesn't beat up on my weak hand index finger at all.

The downside is that now that I've wrapped my strong hand further around the grip, I can barely reach the trigger in double-action, so I'm reduced to cocking each time to shoot single-action. I can only shoot three shots double before my forearm gives out and I just can't get the trigger back again using the tiny bit of fingerpad that reaches.

BUT, I shot two boxes and was as accurate (it's all relative, okay?) at the end of the session as at the beginning, so that is heartening. Based on the handy-dandy target analysis card provided by the range I think I need to work on a smoother pull.
