    Time to qualify

    Worked an entire shift and my shift is off to qualify. No sleep. Tired as hell. I'll let everyone know how we did.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    It's the same way here: I work midnights so when it's time to qualify I have to come in when everyone else comes in....

    Don't ya hate that? I cannot for the life of me understand why agencies don't cater just a bit to the night shift. Schedule stuff for later in the day or early evening so the night crew has a chance to get some rest. Would it kill the Training Div to come in later and give the night guys the opportunity to at least stay awake during training? Nothing worse than working a 12hr shift then have to be at training 2 hrs later and put in an additiion 8 hours.

    I"ve been fairly lucky since we qualify on shift. Usually 2 of us go at a time for a couple hours. The shift is done within 2 days.

    However, damn near every other training is during the day.

    I know it's just crazy. Annual re-training is 24 hours over 2 days, of course if your scheduled to work your off, but if your scheduled off and had to work the night before and you get off at 6am and class starts at 7am til 7pm by the time the first couple hours of boring stuff that you hear year after year is over so are you, out like a light zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Well folks, I ain't tall dark or handsome but usually I can shoot. Today just sucked. We shoot a 60 round course with the top score being 120. I usually always get a 120 with no problem. 115 with my Glock and a 106 with my .45. Disappointed to the extreme. I wish we could have gotten some sleep and went in the afternoon. I am also the usual first person in line when our Tac team makes entry so I try and push myself on my shooting skills. Anyway it is what it is. Never know when you may have to shoot when tired in real life. I was tired and cranky (still am) but I had fun. If we had our own range we would be able to keep our training time up.

    It sucks when you know you can do better if you were just up to par...I am glad though that you still had fun.

    Ha! Exactly. Got home and took a quick nap. Off and running to the Mother-in-Law's in Ms. Going to see my Grandmother while gone too, she's not doing well, so we had to get going. No rest for the weary.

    At least now you know that you can shoot in your sleep! Good luck and stay safe on your trip; hope you can get a family member who has slept more to drive most of the time.

    Without a doubt. Wife's driving but she was relieved about and hour after me and we both have only had a nap. Good news is we'll be there before long. Coffee is good!

    Good luck lew, I'm sure you'll make it there with your usual wit and charm. Don't sweat the qual score, trust your instincts and training and you'll hit it when it counts.
