my birthday present finally arrived


I got a call Wednesday that the gun I ordered back in November was here. I went and picked it up today, and spent some time on the range.

I'm inordinately proud of how I did. :) The first target is at 7.5 yards, the second at 10, and the last at 15. (I'm choosing to pretend that I INTENDED to shoot a picture of the big dipper on the last piece of paper.)

My two goals:

1. Gain enough strength that my arm and wrist don't feel like over-stretched rubber bands when I'm done.

2. Learn NOT to close my eyes tight shut when I'm pulling the trigger. I'm just sure this is not proper procedure. :)

By the way, just a plug for Silver Bullet Firearms on South Division. It's the place where I've taken my classes, and also where I ordered this gun. They have been very helpful, and today the fellow I spoke with took over an hour with me, teaching me how to clean the gun, looking at holsters, etc. Great folks!

You should come visit us in Vermont. You can carry that thing here without a permit. The only state left in the union that affords citizens that privilege.
