So many firsts today!
First time at a shooting range
First time shooting a rifle
First time using real bullets
I’ve shot a revolver before, but it was with wax bullets and we were doing trick shots. That was my first time ever shooting a gun and I had no idea what I was doing. It was purely beginners luck that I was able to hit any targets at all! Like a card thrown in the air…
Actually aiming and hitting targets today was much more gratifying. The sound of the bullet hitting the metal target was like music to my ears!
Initially, I was hesitant to shoot because I was afraid of the recoil, but it wasn’t bad at all. I had to sit down and shoot though because I just didn’t have the strength or steadiness to shoot standing up. I’m so weak!
Henry has been wanting to get a gun for quite some time and now I understand why. So much FUNSIES!
I’m definitely looking forward to going back to shoot again. But geeez, such an expensive hobby…
