A little work on defensive skills

Spent an hour at the range today. Warm, buggy, and honestly my heart was not in it. Too many troubles knocking at the door to really enjoy myself much. Still, mustn't allow the skills to rust away, so I put a few hundred rounds through my carry pistol. Draw from awkward positions and double tap multiple targets while moving. Rinse and repeat as necessary, reloading magazines from my standard carry placement.

I must be getting old. It's taking me almost four seconds to draw from concealed carry and nail three targets quickly at fifteen yards. My mind was elsewhere and it was hard to get into the smooth motions.

On the bright side, I finally found a hand load that won't cycle the S+W cleanly every time.... so now I have 100 rounds of ammunition that can be used for malf drills.

I'm sorry to hear of your troubles, sir. Is there anything I can do from afar?
