Knocking virtual clays out of the sky can improve your range game
Shooter upon shooter taking aim with the faux orange rifles at the NRA Laser Shot booth at CPAC
If you take a right immediately after hitting the exhibit floor at the CPAC conference in Washington, DC, you're bound to come upon the NRA's Laser Shot booth. That's when you'll be faced with a choice ... step up and enjoy the fun or risk embarrass yourself in front of your friends. If it were me, I'd take the risk. Here's why.
What we're featuring this weekend is the "Speed Trap" event. Now at my first live speed trap event while working for the NRA, I hit a dismal eight out of twenty-five. I made it into the double digits the next time out ... but just barely. Then I worked the Laser Shot booth.
There's bound to be downtime no matter what show or event you're attending. During that downtime, I hopped on the Laser Shot for a few extra runs. By the end of the weekend I was challenging the leaders. But that's not the good part.
The good part is that I hit twenty-one out of twenty-five the next time I participated in a live speed trap event. Next time I was twenty for twenty-five. Not going to get me to the Olympics, but I believe it does prove the age old adage of practice making perfect.
So if you're attending CPAC this weekend, and you'd like to bank some extra range time, come on down to the NRA Laser Shot booth. You'll be amazed at the fun.
