Bam Bam Bam, I got the bad guy!

Saturday morning the hubs and I got up early.  We got into the car and headed to PA to go to a shooting range.

This was my first time ever shooting a gun.  I have shot a paintball gun plenty of times, but I hear that it doesn't really count.  You know, because this time I had actual bullets.  Anyways...

To my surprise, I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be.  The hubs bought me my own pair of headphones and protective eye wear.  I was thinking of how I can make it girly and sparkles came to my mind.  I might actually  bejewel my shooting gear.  But shhh, don't tell the hubs.  Moving on, I go up there and do the safety training and for the couple of shots I do with the instructor by my side, I did pretty good.  Then I was on my own with the experienced hubs and experienced brother-in-law.  Great.  Well, they were really cool and were very patient with me, especially the hubs!  So I start to shoot and after a couple of rounds, everyone starts to see a pattern.

All of my targets had MULTIPLE shots in the groin area.  I swear I wasn't aiming for the groan area.  Really, I was aiming for the chest.  Not sure they all believed me, but it's true!  Of course, later throughout the day I started to shoot a little better and got some head shots and chest shots.

So, this statement is for anyone who decides to break into my house and hurt me:

"I have a gun and I will light you up in your groin area MULTIPLE times before going for the head shots.  You've been warned."

Thank you for the 2nd Amendment!

My husband's best friend is a cop in the Linden PD and he took me and his wife to shoot a few years back. It's really unbelievable how powerful those guns are! Gives you a new respect for a firearm if you're able to actually use one.
