having made it through the Columbia Cascade safety manual and quiz and getting through the live fire orientation, I took the plunge and shot the USPSA match at Dundee on Saturday. Big shoutout to my squad who were very patient and helpful to the noob. I think some of the youngsters there were amused to find a beginner the same age as their parents. I'll definitely be going back. Lots of room for improvement so I have a list of skills to work on.
