On my weekly range trips (Pre Covid) I always took a .22 caliber 'fun gun' as well as a centerfire revolver or semi auto. Here are my .22's. I love 'em all and they all get shot regularly.

I don't need skills maintenance, 35 years of muscle memory and 1.5 million rounds downrange. How would I know that for sure? From past experience. I laid off ANY shooting for 5 years while still working the streets daily in the early 90's. Back on the range, 1/2, 3/4 hip, point shoulder and Quick Kill pistol skills were right where they had been. Draw stroke was a few .10's slower than past recorded times though.

Now, if you don't have 1.5 million rounds downrange and 50 years of honed skills, perhaps that person would be in a different situation and need to practice.

Another example, I go 6 months not shooting between courses in Fla. with people here. Did anyone see my demo's of the skills lacking? If they did, no one ever brought it up.

Just to expand on my last post about skills maintenance. Students would be reminded [ they have the skills ] that the skills I employ are instivie skills, and when it only takes one or two mags to be proficient in each of the skills for someone new to the skills, it really means they always had the ability to use them and just didn't have the knowledge of the "how to".

Thus, after the million plus rds down range using the skills I employ, I can go 5 years without shooting and step right up to the plate and perform as if I'd been shooting every day for that 5 years.

One of the great advantages to learning how to shoot instinctively, that many people may not realize. For the rest of the shooting community that uses fsp, you're on your own.

As usual, he’s right. Before two of Brownie’s classes, I hadn’t shot any for several months; four months on one, and six months on the other. The skills were still there. I think because they were developed over a lifetime of activity, then Brownie showed us how to apply them to shooting.

I practice the Zipper constantly. Three or four days a month, on steel silhouettes. Revos and semi’s.
Zipper the front, add 2 by 6 wood and zipper the side.
Zipper, zipper, zipper......I’ve been obsessed since the first time Brownie showed me.

Nice choice! I’ve been thinking about getting a .22LR handgun for training purposes with the price of 9mm being as high as it is.
