I did something yesterday that I had never done before. I put on my ear plugs and safety glasses like I was heading to the production floor at work...but I wasn't going to work (thank God!). I went to the shooting range with my hubby. Remember that gun he got for his birthday? Well, we got to try it out yesterday.
B has a friend from high school who did a little stint in the army in counter-intelligence (think -- hunting down and getting rid of terrorists), and he has an arsenal of weapons...so off we went to the range with our little 380 and we joined the "arsenal."
I don't ever remember shooting a gun with live rounds before. And man was it a rush! I wasn't all that great, but for my first time I think I did pretty good. Can you tell which of the targets below was mine and which was B's?
Yes, mine is on the left. At least I hit the 18" x 18" target at all! I had a little trouble with my aim. I would line everything up just right, and then once I pulled the trigger, I lost it. Or maybe I was yanking on the trigger too hard, and it was messing up my aim -- that's what B's friend said. Then his buddy let me shoot his 9mm. I did much better with that gun...but I definitely need some practice.
Oh, and don't even think about messing with my Marine husband...look at what he did with rapid fire from a 45...watch out!
