When I first got into professional level weapons training my firearms were babied. I was reluctant to drop mag onto gravel, I was very careful not to scratch my firearms, and I was more involved in making sure that my clothes were the latest and coolest of the tactical gear. Fortunately I shed that mindset very quickly as I realized that it was holding me back. Not I treat my weapons hard, the way they should be treated. I now think of firearms as tools for the preservation of life. I treat them accordingly. That's not to say that I abuse them, but I use them and don't worry about the scratches and the mud. Enjoy yourself, firearms training is fun and rewarding. Get to it!
