Pistol League Night

We haven't been to Pistol League at the Carmi Rifle Club since before Christmas; partly because of lousy weather, and partly because of dreary, dark winter evenings.  We went tonight and there were more than a dozen people there, for six lanes of shooting.  We did a lot of catching up and had a great time.

 Pattie shot her personal best before Christmas; 439 out of 480. That is 48 shots, 12 from 15 feet, 12 from 30 feet, and 24 from 50 feet.  She was nervous tonight because she hadn't shot in more than a month, but she broke 400 with a score of 417, and that is pretty good for a lady who has suffered a bad stroke. I hope the weather is good again next week so we can go again.

Makes me wonder just how much it helps her to have something to look forward to.

It helps a great deal. The social interaction and shooting seem to counter the blues for Pat. She is always rejuvenated and talkative on the trip home from the range.
