Check one more thing off my list - shoot a gun(s)

On my list of 101 things to do in my life was learning how to shoot a gun.  Today I got to check that off.
I learned to skeet shoot, first starting with my right side but finally did better shooting on my left. I'm left handed but right eye dominate so I should have done better on my right side.  After I was able to shoot down several in a row, I went on to learn how to load and shoot an assault rifle. Really this would not have been my first choice of guns but it's one of Chad's babies. Then I went on to two types of hand guns.   I don't know how anyone can shoot anything if your running or moving at all.  I had a hard enough time hitting the can standing still.  Skeet shooting was by far more fun.

WOW - something I learned before you! We used to go up north for weekends with some friends to their "deer hunting" cabin in the woods. We would get out the 22 & shoot tin cans all afternoon. It was actually enjoyable, much better than the BB gun!

Right now my house has guns everywhere. Squeak doesn't like them so she's hiding out in her bedroom.

How fun!! I love shooting. I'm no good with rifles though - I don't have the upper body strength for em.
