Nope, Not Dead...

Just insanely busy.

Away on business for the early part of the week, so posting will be light (read: this is about it), as I'm limited to the iPad and the BlogPress app (and, let's not forget, I've been up since 4:30 to catch a 7 AM flight; ah, the glamour of travel...) Still all kinds of happy about the events of this past weekend; regretting not having taken *any* pictures, although Bubblehead Les did send me this one:

That's me on the 100 yard line shooting the 20" BCM upper AR (and ringing the 10" steel plate continuously). I'm still kinda geeking out at the accuracy that upper is capable of achieving - or, more precisely, the accuracy *I* was capable of achieving with that upper.

The scope - a Leupold 4-12x Mark AR - certainly contributes to the shooting. A crisp, clear picture does wonders for shooting decently - imagine that, in order to *hit* your target, you need to *see* your target. One of the things I've totally changed my mind on in recent years is the importance of good optics.

I continue to be amazed at my progress the past year. Certainly, some can be attributed to the excellent tips I've picked up from working on the magazine. I think, though, the greater reasons are receiving training from qualified instructors and just plain getting out to shoot more.

And that's always a good thing.

That is all.

It's good to see you blogging about gun stuff here again, Jay. I can get product announcements and gun specs anywhere, but I want to hear about how people use them to have fun. Thanks!

The importance of good optics is inversely proportional to the quality of the standard MK1 MOD 0 eyeball that was issued to you at birth.

Lately, for me anyway, optics have been getting more important...
