There is no debate, quality gun cases are important and expensive. I have been postponing this purchase for as long as possible, but I have finally made the investment. Patriot Cases had an irresistible Black Friday sale today. An uncut foam hard case. I picked up three of these cases. The first is for my AR 15. The second is for my shotgun and the third is for all of my handguns. I will post pictures of the cases once they are cut to my individual guns.
It feels great to be back in action. A lot has changed since my last blog post. For starters, my Springfield Armory Mil Spec 1911 is finally finished. It has been completely gutted and brought up to competition standards. I have only put 600 rounds through the gun this week and it is clear that I have a lot of ground to cover before it breaks in.
The reality is that I now have a gun that shoots far better than my skill level. It is now up to me to rise to the level of my equipment. I am hoping to consistently document this journey from here on out.
Another major change since my last post is that I have been assigned my AFSC/career. I'm privileged to have been assigned my first choice, 35PX, Public Affairs. I am expecting to start my career as an Air Force officer sometime after June 2015 (needs of the Air Force).
A last note is that I have started looking into finding upcoming CMP EIC matches. The Air Force hosts Elementary EIC matches. The main difference is in the word elementary. These matches are designed for Airman who are not in the traditional shooting circuit. As soon as they place in the top 10% of one of these competitions they are no longer able to compete at this elementary level. They also would earn an elementary bronze EIC badge.
Expect the dates to be posted on the event calendar tab. Happy shooting.
