This past Saturday I finally got around to doing something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. I went to a gun range and fired some pistols. Before heading to the range, I spent several hours doing classroom instruction from a certified NRA instructor. I should be getting my NRA Basic Pistol certification (or is it a card?) in the mail soon.
At the range, I fired two 9MM (Ruger and Glock), a 22, and a .40 caliber Glock. The 22 was too small for my hand, but I enjoyed the others. Someone recently asked me if there was any other reason besides weight lifting why one would do grip strength training. Shooting a .40 caliber Glock might be a reason. Maybe being able to close a 167.5-pound Captains of Crush single-handed helped me handle that Glock? Couldn’t have hurt.
