Something off the bucket list

Allow me to share that I have never touched a gun in my life.  But like I approach life, I thought, "ooh that's fun!  I want to go shooting!"  Today was the day, my friends.   Not too shabby, if I say so myself.

The true story: I jumped every time a gun went off in the range.   I held my earphones tight.  I jumped when I shot too.  I got sweaty palms.  It was stressful.  But I think I adjusted pretty well after about 3-5 rounds.

A friend was teaching me. He did a great job, obviously, I mean look at it!  He tried to help my posture, and help me relax, but poor guy, I couldn't help but think, "you are not so smart to try to get close to me when I have a gun in my hands, buddy."  Don't worry, I didn't shoot him.

  1. Hah. You're so funny. You did a great job! I'll have to tell Tim. Surely he'll want to take you shooting, now, the next time you come up. I would be jumping too - have never been to a range, other than the one we had set up when I was in JROTC. I don't think that really counts. :-) Glad you had fun!
