For 2016, my primary goal is to get formal gun training. I've got no good excuse for not doing it, and there are some great instructors nearby. (My big DANG-I-MISSED-IT moment of the year was when I learned Tom Givens was within 10 miles of me giving a defensive revolver course, 1 week before I learned of it. ARGH!!!!) Up to now I've considered IDPA shooting to be a reasonable training substitute, but I'm not so sure about that anymore, and am going to take that IDPA time and funds and invest them in formal training.
I'm looking into various options. There are some locals that look pretty good. Once of the locals plans on bringing Tom Givens back to do some more classes in 2016. I'm also only a couple of hours away from Tiger McKee's school and I hear a lot of good things about his training. Either way, I want to get a couple of handgun courses and maybe a shotgun course in during 2016.
Beyond that, I plan to drink a little more whiskey, laugh a little more, and worry less.
Do any of you have any goals or resolutions for the New Year?
