What do Guns and Wine have in common...
I recently hosted a wine tasting party tonight, and this morning - in the very wee hours - I had a thought so brilliant that I had to write down so I wouldn't lose it!!
Our taste in guns, just like our taste in wine, changes over time.
I remember back to my second firearm class, the instructor had a gun buffet laid out for us so we could try a variety of guns. As a newbie, I was grateful for the opportunity. An opportunity that I now offer my students.
My tastes have evolved over time with experience and exposure. The guns I liked that day, more specifically the features of those guns, aren't the same guns/features that I like today.
Just like my taste in wines has changed with experience and exposure...
I suspect that's true for a lot of people.
So go out there an experiment! Go re-shoot a gun with features you didn't like the first time you shot it. Re-try a wine that you didn't like 5 years ago. You may be surprised at the results.
Remember - alcohol and guns don’t mix. Just like we don’t drink and drive, we don’t drink and shoot!!
