I’m still doing those things I’m doing

Me, checking off some”things”
(clicky here to see the full list)



#40 –  Own my own handgun and CHL

(I’m female, so I have to add: This picture sucks. My hair is short and brown. Enough said.)

And, can I just say, I love shooting. My wee .38 is such fun!


#22 – Carry jumper cables and know how to use them

Now, to be perfectly honest, I haven’t actually used them yet, no “lesson” or anything. I was TOLD there is nothing to it…I literally need to follow the pictures and connect the colors. Seem simple enough. Plus, I was further informed that once I remove the cables from my handy little bag, I’ll never get them back in there again. So, why make a mess, right?

#11 – Retry ten foods I always thought I hated

Two more down. Only two more to go.

(blackeyed peas)

(fried okra)

Both, I really liked. Thanks, NC for helping me be brave and for taking swell pictures in the dark. xo

Chick with Gun

Before the pretty pictures, let me just say. . . . 
I take this seriously.
I am no Ted Nugent.

I am, however, happily pro gun, 2nd Amendment and NRA.
I am grateful for the fact that I can walk into a store, shop around, ask questions, then buy a gun. (Additionally grateful, even, that it took the great state of Texas six business days to clear my application because of my name.)
I am grateful that I can own a gun–both to protect myself and to shoot for fun. 

I am mature, responsible and capable. 

And now I’m armed.

oorah!

 

Yes, that’s me in my fuzzy, pink cupcake pajamas, and my gun. (And I also did my nails directly after taking this picture. Chipped polish? Ted Nugent would be so disappointed.)

decisions, decisions. . . 

Today, I spent a nice afternoon at my friendly, neighborhood gun range.

BULLET TRAP

After endlessly pondering though the glass (almost as fun as ogling at cupcakes in the bakery), my first choice was this little honey.
Taurus 85 38 Special P+P 3″ Ultra Light
 Funnily enough, my aim was a bit better pulling the full trigger instead of cocking the hammer for the easy pull. I wonder if that’s because my frame was more locked and braced for the recoil. Perhaps.
Anyway. I loved it.
kiss-kiss, bang-bang

Second up: This was the “gun of the week” or whatever, so their was no rental fee. Gimme.
Ruger LCR 38
I’m pretty crazy in love with the hammer-less model. In theory. But again, I like having the option of going double action or single on the trigger.
This little gun had a killer recoil so my hand got a bit beat up, but it was sure dreamy to shoot.
Until. . . .
Smith & Wesson M60 38 Special
I mean, really. Is there anything better than a S&W 38 chrome? It weighs a bit more than the others, but there was hardly any recoil and the double action trigger was super easy. (So easy, in fact, that the first time I shot it, I didn’t even mean to pull the trigger. oopsie. hee-hee)

The S&W is my favorite revolver so far. Now, the hunt begins.
kill zone. dead. good-night.
PS: As I was gearing up (putting on my “eyes and ears”), another shooter and I started chatting. He ended up in the lane next to me and offered to let me shoot two of his guns. First was a lovely semi-automatic number. Loved it. Strong and loud and smooth. Second was a light and slim 22. Wow. It felt like a toy gun. The dude showed me my holes on his target from the 22–they were all in the red center, teeny-tiny holes. (Just sayin’.)
Semis are way fun to shoot, but for now, I’m after that revolver.
