Went to the range on Thursday this week for quarterly qualifications. I was not into it as I suaully am because I was letting something bother me badly. Fact is I was recently told I will not be back to the range as an instructor, no reason(s) given, but I figure it is only because my boss is and has been pissed off at me bigtime.

I wound up shooting a 144 and 146 out of 150, about my worst set of scores in a couple to a few years. I am usually at 146 to 150, and have consistently shot at least 150 every other time I have qualified for quite somne time now. Of the scores on Thursday, the 146 was my second score. I was thinking a little more clearly by then. Funny how I did well on the tactical course though with both pistol and shotgun, when I was shooting and moving and using cover like my life depended upon it.

Right when I was shooting for qualification the job at hand was shooting and nothing else, yet I was feeling sorry for myself and a bit embarassed too because others expected me there as an instructor. The thing is not to let other thoughts disrupt you while shooting, especially thoughts that have nothing to do with the job at hand. Easier said than done, but if in any firefight you had better get it done quickly. Of course in a firefight the things that may disrupt your concentration are far greater, and you will have many things to think about almost simultaneously, but you really need to be focused on the job at hand which would be survival and coming out a winner. So don't bring other thoughts with you, or at least dump them before you are going into any situation that may go hot.

I allowed myself, in this rare instance for me, to not be focused while shooting, and it showed in my scores.

What did you do to piss off your boss? Any chance of mending it? Seems kind of petty of your boss to let something get in the way of you doing your job.

I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure I have this one pegged as a long term thing; I think mainly dealing with me testifying against the Assistant Commissioner on my job during a hearing where they were trying to and eventually fired a coworker. Got to the point where I was lied to about a temporary assignment for which they wanted me to volunteer for a 30 day stint. I have been on that assignment for 15 months now and hating every minute of it. Because I have been vociferous, shall we say, they decided to tighten the screws as i see it.

I have been getting screwed ever since giving that testimony, and it will not go away until I retire. I can retire in less than a year, or I can stay on the job as a member of the KMA (kiss my arse) Club. I may have to stay a while just to irk them, as I am sure they are betting I'll leave as soon as I can.
