I don't really do New Year's resolutions, but this year I do have a few small goals in mind.

1. Get in better shape. Started this one early, about 5 weeks ago and have been hitting the gym several times a week for the past 5 weeks. So far this one's a success.

2. Try new beers, specifically IPA's. There are a handful of beers I really like, so when I hit the store I tend to get the same thing all the time. I've already started this by trying the "Brew Free or Die IPA over the weekend." I intend to pickup a big bottle of Dogfish Head Squall IPA sometime soon, as it comes highly recommended to me by folks whose opinions I trust. If any fellow Dogfish fans would like some or have requests for brews they can't get I've got no problem buying stuff for people who will be in Pittsburgh this year. Just shoot me an e-mail.

3. Get to the range more often. This includes bringing new shooters to the range. Between health issues that turned out just to be stress/anxiety, a car accident, nagging injuries and more pain than even I'm used to it really wasn't a good year from a gunnie standpoint.

4. Go back to school - I really should get my butt back in school this year. Need I say more?

What are your resolutions / plans for 2011?

I think your #1 and #2 goals are somewhat opposing! I'm a big fan of the Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA when I can find it. The 90 Minute IPA is a standard go to IPA for me. Sweetwater IPA is a nice one.

As for my new year's resolution, I've already taken care of most of it. I just sent in my CCW permit application after years of putting it off. Now I'll be able to carry a handgun in Florida state parks and wildlife management areas.

I've been shooting a lot in the past year in preparation to carry, so when I get used to the idea of carrying in the wilderness, I'll ease in to carrying in general public. It may sound like a bit much, but I'm getting there.
