Friday, after work, I finally did something I've talked about for a long time.
I went to an indoor shooting range.
I have never even held a gun of any kind, before last night, let alone shoot one.
It turned out to be fun. Lots of fun! I will be doing it again.
It was a one hour lesson that turned out to be almost two hours.
The female instructor had me use a Walther .22LR... the second photo in the
link is the one I used. It felt very comfortable... easy to handle, simple to load.
I used an entire box of ammo... 100 rounds. I didn't expect to use all 100, but
when they were gone, I was disappointed. I wanted MORE.
My accuracy surprised me. The instructor was impressed. I got to take home
the two targets so I can show the guys at work. Heh. She also said I could tape
the smaller target... about a ten-inch bullseye thingie... to my front door as a ...
I was able to cluster the shots where I wanted them. On the larger target...
an upper body silhouette...
I focused on the head, chest and lower abdomen/groin.
Between both targets there were only about three shots that
veered to the edges.
After talking to Og earlier today, I'm going to try to find someone
who would be willing to go with me, using their guns instead of renting.
After one more lesson.
There were only two negatives from this experience:
1. it cost me $54 in rental fees, including $20 for the instructor.
2. I now have two blisters in my cleavage.
One of the casings flew backwards, instead of to the right.
I was wearing a white, deep v-neck shirt.
It took me too long to find the hot little bastard and remove it.
