Have you ever done anything at the range that after doing it you’re mad at yourself for doing it? Here is what I did that just freaked me out after I had done it.
Yesterday I was alone at the range. I had a malfunction with a wheel gun. I unloaded it, close the cylinder, turned it butt up to remove the screw from the Houge grips.
Saw the problem, fixed it, slide the grips on –not screwed down yet, thumb cock the hammer and squeeze – click, 5 times.
The part that freaked me out was I had turned (subconsciously) to get better light and now the barrel is pointed behind the firing line at a 45 degree angle across the back wall of the range..
I looked up and that’s when I noticed I have turned almost all the way around to get more light to work by.
It made me realize that we at times can be so comfortable in our surrounding that we subconsciously do thing that consciously we would never do.
