The first activity during our weekend of anniversary celebration was hitting the shooting range. It's our "Activ-ersary" weekend;)
It's something that I've been talking about for months. My desire to learn how to shoot stemmed from wanting to be able to protect myself and probably watching a little too much of American Guns, Duck Dynasty, and other Discovery television shows.

After a quick run this morning, we headed to Hite Hollow Shooting Range. We brought along a 380 and 45 to practice. I started with the 380, but then moved to the 45. I'll admit that I was a bit freaked out when we first got out of the car because there were rifles firing really loud and there were already people on the pistol range. Once I was out there and knew the people around us were being safe, I was ready to rock.
It didn't take long before I was tearing up the clays that Rich hung up for us and even destroyed a shotgun shell that he hung just for kicks to see if I could hit it. I preferred the 45 over the 380 even though it has a pretty strong kick. My aim was much better for some reason, maybe the heavier weight?
Would I do this again? Heck yeah. I loved every minute of it. On to shotgun shooting next.... Oh yeah, and maybe a blinged out gun of my own?!
