I hadn't touched off a round in a tad over four months till this morning......took my 1911 S & W 'E' Series 45 ACP to the range and put 100 rounds of my ammo downrange at the 25 yd. gongs.
Apparently shooting, at least for me, isn't like riding a bicycle in that once you learn how to ride a bike or shoot a handgun you never forget.....after not shooting for over four months out of my first ten rounds probably 1/2 of them went in the berm but then I finally settled down and commenced to tear up the 8" and 6" gongs from there on out.
Nobody on the range this morning but me and it felt really good to shoot again.

I'm not sure I ever had any significant amount of skill, I just used to bounce a lot better.You know, as I round 40, it's been my experience that you truly never forget how to ride a bicycle... but you sure do lose the ability to do so with any kind of confidence or skill.
