A couple of weeks ago, the boyfriend got his concealed weapons permit. We’ve always talked about going to the shooting range on a date, but it’s either been really busy, or it’s the weekend we’ve had the kids.
Up until late last year, I’d never even touched a gun. We would go in to the gun store & just look at the different guns.
Now that the boyfriend has his CCW, we are starting to look more seriously in to getting a gun.
Since we didn’t have the kids this weekend, after i got off work, we went to the shooting range & shot a box of ammo.
For it being my first time shooting a gun, i don’t want to say it was fun. It was…nerve wracking. It was LOUD! I jumped almost every time someone shot.
I shot about 16 rounds on a 9mm Smith & Wesson Shield & the boyfriend shot the rest on some other gun that i don’t know what its called.
For it being my first time shooting I’m rather proud of myself because i shot the target in the neck.
With all of this being said, i want people to know that i take gun control & gun safety seriously. There is a time & place for guns. Some people don’t know the boundaries for that. My boyfriend & i do.
This is just one more thing i can cross off my bucket list.
Oh…and (this is the girl in me coming out) they had some really pretty purses there the had concealed holsters in them. I wouldn’t mind one.
Have you ever shot a gun before?
