With the craziness of the past week, the incredible response to National Take Your Daughters to the Range Day, and the associated stress of trying to pull an infrastructure together in record time so we don’t lost the momentum I’ve been losing sleep, grinding my teeth and generally grumpy. Ok, there is another word for it, rhymes with witchy, but I don’t know who is reading this. J
My new friend, and NTYDTTRD supporter, Cathi, reminded me I need to relax, go to the range and let go of the stress. In doing that she reminded me why we started this project. For a moment I had lost sight of that. It is about the sheer joy and fun of shooting.
My plan is to go to the range this weekend and blow holes in paper. I’m not going to work on my next Winchester Rocker, I’m not going to practice my drills, I’m not going to do anything except relax, let the lead fly…downrange of course…and let my stress go downrange with it. Why? For the sheer joy of it.
Thank you all for your support and patience. Hopefully within about two weeks I will have finished by part of the infrastructure and will be able to focus on getting materials out, registering participating ranges, and planning the local event I will co-host. Until then…I’ll keep going to the range and letting the lead, and the stress, fly downrange.
