HAPPY EASTER, Y'ALL

Man, my husband's friend has some sweet toys. Look what we got to do today.

We did some pistol shooting first. I was no good with the .357 Sig, but I did better with the 9mm Beretta. I think I improved a little from my first trip to the range back in October, especially after I tried a different placement for my left hand. It made the kick a lot more manageable. But the real fun was the AR-15.

I look awkward as all get-out in this picture, I think, but I actually was pretty darned proud of myself here. (I want to submit this to the Army and see if they'll let me deploy. Not bad for my very first try.)

But I don't look nearly as good as my smokin' hot husband.

Overall, I was a lot more comfortable this time around. I had fun and improved my meager skills. And the rifle was a lot of fun, though my shoulder is already feeling it.

I'm looking forward to going back. Good thing my husband has a single buddy who's happy to exchange ammo for a home-cooked meal.

1 If you ever make it to the Ft Lewis, WA area, I would be happy to take you shooting. If you get the chance to try a SIG P228 in 9mm, I think it will fit you well.

2 Not too suprised the .357 SIG was not good for you - a very snappy round. Although many do not like it the Beretta M9 is the sidearm of Freedom these days. Hope we get the chance to to do this too - Mrs. Badger 6 likes shooting as well.

5 I don't think you look awkward at all--more like a pro

6 You both look great. Your hair, too, looks FABULOUS which, by the way, is VERY important when handling firearms...just ask Police Woman, Angie Dickinson.

7 Ahhhh, gun porn. Love it. Can't wait to get to the range myself but it needs to warm up a bit here first.
