Sunday Family Match

Today after lunch we shot our Sunday Family Match.  Wax bullets in the backyard.  PawPaw was range-mastering, and I really didn't have time to take pictures or video, but the trash-talking commenced and was soon over.  You can't trash-talk a timer, it doesn't care.

Milady worked on her draw and was very consistent in the 1.1 second range.  She had four hits during one sting, all in the 1.1 range.  For a shooter who was shooting in the 1.8s just two months ago, and had never run against a timer three months ago, she's doing great.  She intends to be in the  0.8s by the time we go to Odessa in July, so we've got some work to do.

I worked on my draw, trying to get consistent.  Occasionally, I'll shoot in the high 0.7s, but mainly in the 0.9s low 1.0s.  Gentleman George showed me a new draw technique, and I can see the benefits.  I'll be working on that this week, trying to get consistent.

Zachary is still walking on water, knowing that he beat Part-Time yesterday.  He asked me to find a video that he could show his mother, of a song Part-Time played for us at the Texas State Championsips, April last.  I found it and downloaded it to my YouTube channel so that he could find it, and I'll embed it for you below.  It's a humorous little song about a fast-draw shooter.

Part Time is, of course, Dusty Damrel, a true gentleman from Vidor, Texas.  I count him as a friend.  He's a world renown whip-maker and a really fine holster maker,  When I needed a holster for Milady, I called Dusty.  His website is here.  If you need a whip or a holster, give Dusty a call.  He's a master of his craft, a fine fellow, and a joy to be around.
