    Well I finally made it out to our local range and it's a fun story! I decided that I wanted to throw Nebeel a surprise birthday party. Well I was thinking to myself what would be the best place to do this? The gun range of course! So I rented out the bb range to transform into a private banquet hall for a full course dinner and the lanes for the night. Private gun range and a decorated bb range make for a nice night out for a birthday party in our house. So my friend and I dressed up like the Stepford wives and served the guys dinner then we shot up the range with cake afterwards. It turned out very well. So not only did we have a good time I found out I am not a terrible shot. I used my Ruger Bearcat and rented a Glock 19. So I thought I would share my targets because well i'm kinda proud of them. It's hard to see on the .22 one but there is a head and a neck shot on it. By the end of my hour (before I had to serve the cake) I stopped both jerking on the trigger and closing my eyes. I also know now that little black dresses and high heels are not the best range outfit choices out there. I did read enough of my Cornered Cat book to know I should bring some flats for when we were shooting. The range ladies gave me a hankie for my neck. I had to laugh because it was hot pink which meant it matched my nails and my hair bow. I was styling at the gun range. :cool: The NRA instructor said if we called a head of time he would bring his Glock 26 down for me to use next time we go down. So I had fun and decided that I wouldn't mind hiring a babysitter and going once a week. Anyhow, here is my targets. In case you can't read the notes on them they say the caliber and how far. They were both at 10 yards. The one that in my oldest daughter's words, "look like I poked it with my pen" is the .22.

    What a great idea for a party and what a great wife!

    I have always said this, most people who do not like shooting guns have never shot guns. I'm very happy to hear we have another female shooter among us! The more the better IMO. Hey, when the Zombies come it's all hands on deck and a gun in everyone hand! LOL

    Well done Nebeel'sWife and welcome to shooting and the forum...
