My lovely friend Kelly first told me about a 101 in 1001 list… it’s 101 things you want to do in the next 1001 days. She started hers last year and has made some incredible strides in completing it. I began mine January of 2010 and still haven’t managed to write down 101 things but I’m working on it. I have managed to cross off a few from my list, which is so exciting… but this past weekend I got to do something I’ve been waiting YEARS to do.
#50 – Learn how to shoot a gun
My dad has been talking about going to the shooting range and somehow it just never worked out until Saturday! To be honest, I was a little nervous walking into the shooting range. Dad gave me a run down before we left and how to shoot the gun and the safety precautions, but still a gun is a powerful machine. The first round was well.. not so great, I may have actually hit the target 4 out of 12 rounds.. WHOOPS! The second was a lot better, I actually shot pretty well (I took a picture to document!)… but then nerves got the best of me. I’m excited to go back and try it again though, practice makes perfect.. right?Disregard the quality of the following pictures, they were taken with my cell phone. I didn’t think bringing my camera to the shooting range would be a safe idea, but I had to have proof that I accomplished this!
