American quantum physicist, Richard Feynman, in another life may have been one heck of a shooter!!! Well, Richard (who was one smart fella), went very deep into theoretical physics in a host of his works. He set the stage….. Imagine that you are in a dark, unfamiliar room. Pitch black. Richard postulated that if you stayed in one single spot in that room…didn’t move, you would in essence never learn ANYTHING about your surroundings. You’d never learn the possible layout, possible exits, or any obstructions within that room.
Well guys….we can apply this theoretical framework to the world of shooting as well. Imagine that dark room being the world of shooting. We all come into this room blind. As a result, most shooters tend to stay in one spot. Do one thing. But, if you move around a little bit, bump your head some, you will undoubtedly learn vastly more than if you stay stagnant. In other words….TRAIN!!! Get out into the world of shooting and train guys!! Get to the range, take a class, travel to learn things about the wonderful, wacky world of shooting! As we always tell you….shooting is most definitely a perishable skill. You must train to stay sharp. My granddad would always tell us: If you stay ready, you won’t have to get ready.
Training, my dear shooters, will help you find the light switch!!! Granted, this is a big room and there may be several light switches…..training is the key!!!
*** If you are unfamiliar with firearms and/or their accessories, and want to learn more, PSA strongly suggests that you find, enroll, and attend a comprehensive and reputable firearms safety course. Firearms safety is all of OUR responsibility.
We want to thank you for taking out the time to stop by our lane at the shooting range!! We hope that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you stop back by early and often to catch up on all PSA updates! We truly hope that we were able to hit the target, and if you ever have any questions please don’t hesitate to shoot them our way!! We look forward to shooting the breeze with you soon again!!
And as always….remember to watch your six and stay low!!!
