Good times. Good vibes. Good company.

Bang Bang

I was sooooo excited throughout this past Sunday because Mummy and I had plans to go shooting at the range later on that evening after running a few errands out in the beautiful Spring weather (though, later on….bizarrely foggy around our neighbour hood!  I guess that's to be expected when you live near the sea.)

It takes 50% mental focus and 50% practice and skill to be a good shot and I hope to practice more often so to educate myself fully on the ins and out of these powerful weapons and to acquire skill.

The first and "regular" gun I was given to load and shoot with was so much lighter than what I'd expected.  I could not hit the target a single time as we were obviously told to use the standard two-hand grip.  I held it all too tightly, afraid to drop it, again, expecting it's weight to be vastly more than it indeed was.  Then, I inquired as to whether or not I was permitted to shoot with one hand…SUCCESS!! I hit the target time after time without fail.  So strange :P

When given a second, heavier gun, I managed much better with a two-hand grip but alas, one handed simply works best for me! :D  We had such a funny instructor as well who couldn't help with the expected American jokes.

Mummy had been rifle shooting the week before (something else I can't wait to try as I've never shot a rifle before.  That, and bow & arrows…but that's another story/thing to tick off my bucket list.  Horses included) and we learnt that evening that she is much, MUCH better at that than she is with hand guns.

I had a great time, a really cool experience that I hope to be able to see more of in the near future.  Time flew by faster than I could have imagined.  When you're able to focus, in a safe and comfortable environment filled with great tips and humour, I suppose time passes quickly.

Came home to enjoy Mummy's delicious chicken salad for din-din before Mads and I loaded up the car with the majority of the contents I had left in Svendborg at my grandparents' and headed home for a good night's rest.
