Kentucky State - Day Zero

We showed up at the range today and decided to enter the Early Bird Match.  I mean, c'mon, a bunch of gunslingers standing around? There's liable to be a gunfight break out.  And break out it did.

It's not all fun and games, though.  There's coaching, mentoring, and helping other shooters.  In the photo below, Belle helps a shooter at the dry-fire wall.  Something I learned a early on in this game is that we help each other.

Above, Belle is helping a shooter named Diamond Girl at the dry fire wall.  We help each other, and it's entirely likely that Diamond Girl will give Belle an X tomorrow.

And, of course, there is bling.  Belle stumbled upon a set of grips she likes, and I had the cash in my pocket.  So, Belle got new grips.

Pretty nice, don't ya think?  Belle thinks so too.  The match starts tomorrow with bracket matches, and we're in the room plotting our revenge for the Xs we got today.

Looks like good folks having good fun.
Seems like a lot like the motorcycle-riding community. We help each other out. There are always some who won't even talk to you 'cause you ride a different brand/style/origin (1911 vs. Glock, anyone?), but most just want to help those who find themselves in a tight spot, or are less experienced and willing to learn.
Enjoy central Kentucky, it's a lovely place (I live about 80 or so miles south of where you are).

P.S. In that area, you can still find one or two Big Boy restaurants. Don't know if y'all have them in LA, nor if you care, but they don't exist anymore in TN & a lot if other places.

Ooops--"of", not "if". I should proofread.
