Gone Shootin'

I don't remember if I told you all that I got my gun carry permit a few weeks ago.   I also purchased a small handgun, but I wasn't very confident in using it - because I'm used to my dad's much bigger handgun. Mine is very  cute, but very small. Not very accurate after 5 yards or so (And no, it's not me, I'm a good shot. ;) )  

So I brought my gun down to Florida with me (After checking to make sure Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida all honor the TN gun permit (They do) ) and asked my police officer brother to teach me to shoot better. We went to a range near my grandmother's and fired about 90 rounds at paper targets. Yay, what fun.

I am definitely more comfortable with my gun now, and I think I'll be comfortable carrying it now, but first I need to get a holster! 

Do you like to shoot?


  1. Pathetically, I've only shot once in my life, and it was at a wildlife expo-thing. While I am somewhat well acquainted with guns (from a distance... *clears throat*) I've never had a chance to learn to shoot anything except a compound bow.

  2. AWESOME im talimg the safty gun class this summer then im takimg normal classes and my dads going to buy me a gun most likly a rifel. But im sooooo phyched about it

  3. I do like to shoot! Every summer, when we go camping, that's one of our favorite things to do. And my dad takes my sister and I to the range every so often. I'm not super-good, but I'm not terrible either.

  4. Hehe, I'm not exactly a gun expert. :P All I've done is take riflery at summer camp and use a pellet gun to shoot the occasional rabbit. Plus, I don't think it's legal for me to carry any kind of gun around in public! Lucky you...I think.
