It Could Never Happen To Me

It could never happen to me,
Yet I put on my seat belt anyway.

It could never happen to me,
But I teach my kids not to talk to strangers.

It could never happen to me,
yet I lock my car doors anyway.

It could never happen to me,
but I look both ways before I cross the street.

It could never happen to me,
But I teach my children not to take candy from people unless they have Mommy and Daddy’s permission.

It could never happen to me,
But I keep emergency numbers next to my telephone.

It could never happen to me,
Yet I keep a first aid kit in my car trunk.

It could never happen to me,
But I keep matches, lighters and candles away from my children.

It could never happen to me,
But I keep the doors to my house locked at all times.

It could never happen to me,
Yet I never leave food cooking unattended

It could never happen to me,
Yet I never leave a space heater on when I go to sleep.

It could never happen to me,
But I never give out my social security number over the Internet.

It could never happen to me,
Yet here I am behind an overturned table with no means to protect myself…

I should have learned from Virginia Tech,

But I never thought it could happen to me.

Pistol League 11- Week 1

This video shows the first course of fire for our Pistol league at the Bullethole Range. I’ve got a good start. Currently I am 5th overall, but 2nd in my division. So far only 40 shooters have shot, with possibly more to compete. I’ll have a better idea of where I stand by Wednesday.

I chose to run the course of fire as follows;
Draw and fire eight shots,
Reload magazine on the move,
Shoot the Pepper popper (14 yards away, off camera)which activates the clam shell,
Two shots on the clam shell,
Eight shots,
Reload on the move,
Last eight shots.
All in 21 seconds. That is pretty good for me, but I’ve got a lot of work to do if I want to be fast.

Pistol League # 11 Starts Today

As some of you know, I’ve picked up a new hobby- competitive pistol shooting. I have an annual membership at the Bullethole Shooting Range in San Antonio, TX and practice every week. I saw that they had some competitions so I joined knowing that it would help me grow as a shooter. I did well enough in my first league to get recruited by a good team for the next league. I’ve been “Deadeye Keith” ever since.

The league started today and I look forward to shooting various courses of fire for the next seven weeks. Enjoy the promo video below and if you live in the San Antonio area, come shoot with us! It is a blast (pun intended) and you will learn a lot! If you would like to see the courses of fire, you can check them out here.

Pistol League Video- Shooting The Texas Star

Last week was the final week for pistol league # 10, the first BulletHole league of the year for 2007. Because our team (the Deadeyes) has won the league a number of times, we are no longer in competition for a team trophy. We can still earn individual trophies, but not together as a team.

This league was not a good one for me. Although I finished 10th out of more than 65 shooters, I could have done much better. Out of the seven weeks of the league, I was satisfied with my preformance only twice. Three weeks were just bad shooting and for the last two weeks my gun jammed. If I shot to my potential, I could have been as high as 5th place and earned a 2nd place trophy for my division. Here is a youtube video of one of my good runs.

First shots with my new XD

I know I am late in posting this, but it is better late than never. I wanted to show off how reliable the Springfield XD is right out of the box. I wanted to go shoot it the day that Fed Ex deliverd it, but I had too much ministry to do that day. Once I finally got to the range, I was not disappointed at all. My first shot was a perfect 10 at seven yards. A little higher and to the right of dead center, but a ten none the less.

My next five shots were also tens. Still a little high except for one shot that I jerked. I felt it when I shot it and was thankful that I did not jerk it as much as I thought I did. A little more and it would have been a nine. That big tear in the top middle is two rounds. It doesn’t show up on the picture very well, but there are two grease rings where the paper is folder back

I figured, what the heck, after shooting six perfect shots, I might as well just keeep shooting tens with the whole box… so I did.

This is the first time I’ve ever shot tens with one whole box of ammo. I’ve had some close ones before, but never one where all of the grease rings are breaking the line of the ten spot. I am VERY happy with my new Springfield XD.
