Oh ya, I had a hot date with my husband last night!!!! Long overdue and much needed! My husband came home and asked what I'd like to do, and I really didn't have any great ideas. Then he said, "You want to go to the shooting range and shoot a handgun?" That question would mark the moment when a lot of women would have recoiled, but knowing that this is something my husband truly enjoys and I don't mind...It was a definite YES.
So, off to the range we went. Brett let the guy know that we were there to try a gun in my hands since he's getting me one soon. Ick, gasp, breathe...I chose a Glock 9mm. One man informed me with a bit of a teasing tone that choosing the Glock showed a character flaw while another man argued that indeed I'm wise because the Glock is clearly superior. And most of us don't really know what that all that means except that the bullets are really big and expensive. Anyway, away we went to shoot. My husband is a fantastic aim, even without his glasses. I hit my target and in the general area except for two bullets who drifted south...but still good enough. You know how interesting I am? I cut myself on the gun...not exactly the wound you expect from the gun. Anyway, we came out and looked at some other guns. The guy asked how it went and I said "interesting." Everyone started laughing and said they'd never heard shooting described like that. The man found out it was my first time shooting a hand gun and said he wished he'd known that because they would have started me off with a .22. My husband quickly replied, "Ah, no, she's good." So cool to have my husband be proud of me and believe in my marksman skills.
We got a second target paper and did go with a .22 pistol. Long story short, our cable for the return broke and my target paper was out there in the middle of no where. Brett told the guy and the man said to finish and he'd shut down the range to get it because, "She's gonna want that paper." How nice was that!!! He didn't make fun of me and even went the extra mile for sentimental needs-a target paper that had 6 direct bulls-eyes and four just around the rim...That is pretty good, if I don't say so myself!
I love this man!!!
