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."
