Avi made sandwiches and when we got there, we were the only ones there. I filled out this sheet for first timers and it asked general safety questions. Avi ran through the basics. We had only been there a few minutes when an older couple came. When Avi shot the gun for the first time, I didn't realize that the shells would come towards your face. That kind of freaked me out. Then I heard the lady shoot her gun and it was loud and made me jump. I didn't know that guns were so loud. So trying to focus on the target, trying to cock the gun, and trying not to jump all at the same time... It was an experience. Then after I got use the noise and figured out how to use my gun, and tuned everything else out. I did get to feel a hot shell go down my blouse, but I didn't burn myself.
My work policy doesn't allow concealed carry, but I can keep it in my car. It's instant termination. I've always wanted to have a gun. I used to dream of being a police officer and making it to detective. I know now that I wasn't supposed to be a police officer, but this is like getting to fulfill part of that fantasy.
I'm going to work on getting my Concealed Carry License. I'm looking forward to learning more. It's going to be a big challenge to get time alone with Avi, especially this summer. It's a great way to blow off some steam. Boss make you mad, shoot a 100 rounds. Kids freaking you out. Shoot at a range.
Mine is a Walther P22. I named him Walter. Avi's Ruger is named Beulah.
