      Stirred up some unused muscles.....

      Mebbe so you younger shooters don't encounter this, but for those who have passed the half-century milestone.........

      I'm a pretty fair shot with the handgun. Over the years I developed my own stance for precision shooting. I stand, not quite ninety degrees away from the target (I shoot handguns right-handed) with my gun held in my right hand, left hand nearly wrapping my right, both thumbs high, leaning slightly forward, right leg slightly back and braced. Works for me, O.K.?

      Well, much of this summer, I've been doing some one-hand, duelist stlye shooting with the single action guns. No reason, just because I wanted to.

      I broke out my old 5" Model 29 Smith recently, not having done much with it of late. Using a medium-stout 200gr. hunting load. So, I went back to my stance for this type of shooting. Fired about 300 rounds Saturday morning. Sunday morning as I was dressing for Sunday School, noticed a few sharp twinges of pain in my lower back, buttocks, shoulders and arms.

      I had gotten out of shape! I have always contended that shooting the handgun is 95% concentration and 5% conditioning.

      Well, my concentration hadn't slipped. But.........

      Since I expect to live to 140, I still consider myself middle aged!
