Where Hunters Learn To Shoot on the Run

“Someday you’ll wish you’d taken these lessons more seriously,” my mother admonished. Her words still ring in my ears, and she was right. She was talking about dancing lessons and, today, I do wish I’d taken those lessons more seriously. But, at the age of 6, the impudence and ignorance of youth prevailed. My interest in shooting guns overrode my mother’s desire for me to dance or take art lessons. In spite of not heeding her desire for me to be a professional dancer (I coulda been somebody!) I’ve been pretty lucky when it comes to the experiences I’ve had, the places I’ve lived and the things I’ve done. But even so, there are still activities I do wish I’d learned correctly from the beginning. Take shooting, for example.
 

OK: Agenda Full as Legislature Nears Halfway Mark

After two months of work, Oklahoma lawmakers can claim at least one accomplishment: passage of legislation that finally brings the state into compliance with the 2005 federal REAL ID Act, a response to the Sept. 11 terror attacks that imposes tougher requirements for proof of legal U.S. residency to obtain state driver's licenses. But the Legislature is only about halfway through its annual session. Much more is on the 2017 Oklahoma Legislature's agenda before it is required to adjourn on May 26, including raising teacher pay, modifying guidelines for the judiciary and criminal justice, abortion and ways to raise new revenue.

Growing up, Martin De Rito’s family was not a gun-loving group. He said his dad was “anti-gun” and his mom didn’t want any guns in the house– but that didn’t stop De Rito. He first went shooting around age six, but De Rito said he wasn’t able to shoot regularly until his junior year of high school. This was around the time he was able to buy his first gun, an AR-15, a modern sporting rifle.

You may have gathered we’ve been on the road this week to take advantage of a rare opportunity—shooting with the some of the very best at USPSA’s first all-optics “Nationals.” Competition at this level is always an education, and quite often of the drinking-from-a-fire-hose variety. We made it through with a pistol caliber carbine without any egregious mishaps of our own making, and our gear had a lot to do with that. Few things are more distracting than “not-bang,” and we had none of that malarkey over two long days, 20 stages and 481 rounds.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I do believe that where there is a choice only between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. Thus when my eldest son asked me what he should have done had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908 [by an Indian extremist opposed to Gandhi's agreement with Smuts], whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defend me, I told him it was his duty to defend me even by using violence. Hence it was that I took part in the Boer War, the so-called Zulu Rebellion and [World War I]. Hence also do I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor. — Mohandas K. Gandhi, Young India, August 11, 1920 from Fischer, Louis ed.,The Essential Gandhi, 1962
