    Feelin' pretty good...

    Had a good day at the range today, one of my troops just shot NRA Distinguished Expert with a pistol.
    I "raised" this kid from a pup (PFC, fresh out of AIT), when I first got him he could just barely qualify with an M4 and couldn't shoot a 240 worth sour owl snot. Kid would physically shake when I was talking to him.
    Got him shooting a LOT better, took him thru Iraq, now he's doing college, backed off the beer, and ain't afraid to stand up, look you in the eye, and say what's on his mind.
    Days like today remind me why I'm still still doing this crap.
