Last Saturday, Hank and I did some target shooting. Which was fun and super awesome! Plus, fun. Did I mention it was awesome, too? Yes. I haven't done too much shooting, but I always enjoy it when I get the chance.
We had an assortment of .22's (rifle, revolver, and semi-automatic pistol), plus another revolver...and I can't remember for sure what it was. Hank has only told me several times...was it a .45? Anyway, I've shot my bro's .22 rifle before so that was pretty straight forward, and I have fired blanks from a .45 during a cowboy mounted shooting clinic. Hank had to show me how to hold the pistol correctly, but that wasn't too hard and I had fun shooting those. And yes, hitting those targets! Especially with Hank getting so excited every time I hit something. He hit the target a lot more than I did, but I wasn't too bad. *smile* In the end, the pistols look really cool and are fun, but I prefer the rifle.
We're shooting shotguns next, and apparently I will have to shoot and kill something by the end of the year...besides a pop can. That's what Hank says, so I guess I'll have to. Sounds like ground squirrels will be my first victims. And here's where my real life friends die from shock. Tasha, killing something?! Well, I intend to give it a shot. *wink*
How about you, do you enjoy shooting? Have you ever shot a gun? I want to know!
By the way, I would never kill something just for the sake of killing it.
With ground squirrels, there's a reason.
