Shoot for shootin’s sake

I got in a little trigger time with my brother over the Thanksgiving Day weekend, just us, a few friends and a variety of guns, the great oudoors and I realized something on the way back.

I don’t like shooting for shooting’s sake anymore.

I like to go the range, and I like to shoot, but if I go to the range these days, it’s practice for a specific skill or skills that I need to improve, and not just shooting to go shoot.

I still like to socialize while shooting, but I guess I don’t see a trip to the range just to go send lead downrange as a fun thing anymore.

Not that there’s anything wrong about that.
