Had a great time this Saturday morning at the Juneau Gun Club. It was the 11th Annual Legislative Shoot. About fifteen three person teams competed in rifle, shotgun, pistol, and archery. Teams included the Misfires, the Munoz Militia, Gone Ballistic, Ladies Lock and Load, Clear Miss, the Seaton Shooters, and Shake and Bake. My team (See photo)was the Lynn Street Gang: my staffer Dirk Moffatt, Matt Johnston from Rep. Wes Keller’s office, and me.

There’s a limit to “legislative transparency” when it comes to shooting scores. Merely let it be reported that our Lynn Street Gang scored respectfully in the “middle of the pack.” For me, archery was a disaster (when I did the archery event, the safest place in the room would have been holding the target).
However, I did score 91 in pistol competition with a good grouping. First time I’ve fired in any kind of competition in over forty years, so I’m fairly pleased.

We all fired the Glock 40 pistol. First time I ever fired it. What a great piece! I’d like to add it to my Colt 44 Magnum, and the Colt .38 from my police days. I’m looking forward to next year’s match.
