Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


I'm an AC/DC song

"Shoot to Thrill" is my song for this post.

Ok, maybe I could be "Shook Me All Night Long," too. *wink*

About a week ago, Army of Dad took me shooting. My .38 that AoD bought for me from Kim DuToit last October is currently in use by Kim for an episode of The Shooting Trail on good handguns for women. So, Kim let us borrow his Llama Mini-Max in .45ACP.

I like it better than my .38, but I honestly prefer AoD's Smith and Wesson 40-caliber the best. We found a gun I liked once and I should have let him buy it for me, then, but such is life. We may find another again.

Shooting Kim's gun was good. It has a pretty good pop, since it is a .45 and I shot pretty well with it, too. It was my first time in an indoor shooting range and that was strange to me. I felt very CSI for some reason. I kept picturing Grissom in the stall next to us.

And, my target from about 10 feet away.

Not too bad for an unfamiliar gun. Bad guys beware. Don't eff with me.

    Hey,if you prefer it, keep it. Your call.

    I'm gonna do my best to stay on your good side.

    Somewhere is a picture of my target, which had been tied to a hay bale out in the field behind a buddy's barn. The bullets all hit, but all over the page.

    You're quite right about the CSI feel with an indoor range. Which is why I haven't been to one in ages. The time and place is needed for the folks who need to keep their aim up-to-date.
    I'm just old and grumpy and harmless.

    Thanks, Kim, for the generous offer, but I'll take my little .38 back and wait till Santa AoD brings me the S&W 40-cal of my dreams. ;)

    It is fun to fondle that .45, though.

    Whenever I do head shots, I sometimes miss. That isn't acceptable if sad bad guy is in my house and charging at me. So, I tend to work on shooting in an area where I can put the a-hole down and be safe.

    Although, I suppose the more I practice, the better I'll get. But, I don't get to shoot enough. So I tend to keep it simple.

    But, thanks for the compliment.
