Shooting with the Young Women

On Saturday, I went shooting with the Mia Maids and their dads. The only gun I have touched in my life is a wimpy bb gun. I remember how scared my dad was in letting me handle it. So it was pretty exciting to shoot a 44 magnum pistol, a 700 ultra mag, a 357 rifle, several different shotguns and a couple semi-automatics. My favorite had to be the 44 magnum as well as the shotguns that had a scope so you could see your target. I wasn't too bad at shooting those targets. I even shot a clay pigeon. Linda Stephens' husband taught the girls about the safety and handling of guns. After, we were free to try any of the guns. Some had a kick which I tried. I DID NOT like those guns. It hurt my shoulder. Overall, I think we all had a good time and learned a lot about the different types of guns. Don't I look like a natural in those pictures? Oh yeah!

I actually don't believe that anyone can buy guns. I know it is the people that cause problems but it still irks me that there are people that can go to Gun shows and buy any gun that they desire. It scares me! Adrian strongly disagrees with the 3rd amendment so he was definitely not interested in going with us. He was invited to come but it wasn't happening. What are your beliefs on guns?

I'm definitely against them. If it were up to me they couldn't even have guns in video games.

It is funny to see all of your cute Mia Maids holding guns though. They all looked like they were having a great time.
