I learned how to shoot a gun tonight. One of my colleagues competes in shootin' (his word, not mine) competitions and mentioned it a while back. I said that I had always wanted to learn how to shoot a gun and he offered to teach me. I don't think this will become a regular thing for me and I don't see myself ever owning a gun. I simply wanted to know how to shoot one to add it to the list of things I've done.

The first couple of trigger pulls were terrifying. I am after all the girl who is afraid of champagne bottles and Pillsbury dough containers so pulling a trigger to make a big bang was the part I was absolutely dreading. But once I got used to it I got comfortable and towards the end of 50 rounds I was pretty good, if I do say so myself.  The target above was the first of three.  The target pictured below was the final target.
