搬家记(十八):卖房教训

房子终于卖出去了。回头看看,居然用了一年的时间。如果说买房子和大家分享的是经验,那卖房子,说出来的全都是教训了。

最大的教训就是选Realtor的问题。

其实早有房地产界大佬分享说:买房找老中,卖房找老美。可惜当时领悟不深,加上房子买到后有些松懈偷懒,就直接用了买房子的老中realtor,要了些commision rebate,想着生意很快就上门了。

可惜。。。

第一次打手枪

经济低迷,周围大环境严峻,未雨绸缪,趁春假的一个周末,和朋友约在了南面的Red’s室内靶场

自己是第一次,而朋友们是老鸟先入林,陆陆续续都配上了自己的家伙。开车的时候问了一下,说德州条例宽松,开车的时候如果枪放在车后trunk里面,不需要额外的licence。条例宽松,德州有枪的比例很高。网上看到很不错的帖子,一查,网友都是德州的。

比如这篇:
聊一聊个人和家庭的防卫以及器械

一系列文章写的非常不错,读之后非常长知识。我是每每读完之后,觉得自己纸上谈兵的本事见长。

去之前还在youtube上看了两段短片,算是科普一下持枪的手法。


www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQgLmQl1zDw

室内靶场,100-yard的长度,有十道。刚到门口就听到里面兵兵乓乓的“爆竹”声。自己要了把Glock 17, 其他朋友的枪也都是9mm的,所以大家都带了些子弹。又要了把AK 47, 大家轮流过过瘾。

周末,靶场基本满员。夸张地是有一家老爹带着个小男孩来练枪,还是长枪,看小孩也就我家小的那么大。感觉这打枪应该和喝酒似的,有个年龄最低限比较好吧?否则年轻人易冲动,高中枪案频频也就不奇怪了。除了小朋友,还有不少主妇和熟女,
老美这儿打枪是普及文化啊。

打了大半个钟,9mm大概打了两三百发,AK 47 打了60发,“打枪就是烧子弹钱”,深有感触。

几点感想:

1. 室内子弹声震耳欲聋,即使带着耳罩。特别是旁边长枪一响,自己瞄准的时候都会分神。不知道室外的会不会好些?

2. 打枪容易上子弹难啊。Glock17 17发的弹夹我摁到15发就上不动了。打完之后,大拇哥很痛。

3. 9mm的后座力感觉不错。Glock 17的枪型也不错。感觉如果手枪是compact型的,对我而言可能太小。

4.顺便也打了两把朋友9mm的,牌子不太记得了,不过价位在500和300左右。500的那把是金属的,分量要重些,摸上去手感好。300的那把扳机是双程的,感觉不是很适应,要用力扣才可以打响。总而言之,不同的牌子感觉不很一样,看来还要多打几把,找的自己喜欢的。

5. 自己的第一次,感觉还成,准确度也不错, 7 yard打到后来也八九不离十吧。只不过要靠着固定支撑,被朋友笑。双手凭空持枪还是抖,不稳。

6. AK 47的后座力要大多了,打完后肩膀酸酸的。不知道真当成冲锋枪是什么感觉。

7. 靶纸太廉价了,子弹打过去没有效果。估计没有打个空瓶子或者西瓜什么的效果好。

和朋友约好,以后短枪打好了,去打室外的飞碟,体味下shotgun的感觉。

今年的目标是争取把家庭防卫能力提高到一长一短的平均水平,而且看来Red’s还要常来。
