    looking like a weeble

    Post by ThisOlVet on Thu Sep 12, 2013 9:51 pm

    Ok I am going to poke fun at myself. Today I went to the range and I was the only one there. So I decided to try a few things that I have not done in years. Fire from the kneeling position, prone position, laying on my back, and on each side. Well first off I am not so young anymore nor do I have the physique I use to have. So I got into the kneeling position to shoot and immediately thought to myself it might be hard getting up from here. So I went into the prone position and that was ok except having to lift my shoulders above my stomach (Still Breathe) and maintain that posture until done shooting. I then rolled over onto my back bent my knees up and spread my legs so I wouldn't shoot my foot off. I thought to myself I am so glad no one has a camera out here. I then rolled onto my side and thought ok how am I going to get up and the thought came to me "help me I am falling and I can't get up". I rolled over and right into a puddle of cold rain water. Nice I thought NOT. Ok now I am done how the heck am I going to get up. I finally got up ( I don't even want to know what that looked like) and walked over to reload. This was all good until I started to tell my story to my other half. Men Don't Do It. She has given an idea to the range. She requested to please place cameras on the ranges. She stated that she thought I would have looked like a Weeble doing the things I did on the range today. On the lighter side I didn't fall down. So Men words to the wise don't tell your wives all of your activities you do on the range.
