This is hard for humans to embrace.
I am burned out in other areas of my life, so why try to do it here...
I think this is my life motto regarding USPSA. I realize I do not have the psychomotor skills to be a M or GM, that is an assessment of my place in life. I have seen the performance of the highest level shooters and I do not have that focus or determination, I still am in awe of that skill set. I shoot a different gun frequently because I want to master my gun safe, not an individual gun. My daughters own guns and occasionally shoot, not because I want them to be top level USPSA shooters, but I want them to teach their sons and daughters how to shoot (if they marry some panty waist skinny jean wearing idiot). I am a better gun handler because of this sport. I enjoy it every time I do it. I try to encourage women and youth participation when ever I can.
I have seen some of the high end shooters who cannot embrace the new shooters. While that may be an individual choice, we do not have that luxury with the world today. As a group, lets not discourage the inheritors of this sport.
