She shoots like a girl.

I haven’t been to the gun range since last May, a week before finding out I was nearly three months pregnant. Armed with a custom .223 Savage target rifle, I was excited to finally get back on the range and shoot some paper.

While Husband was sighting in a gun with a new scope, I was at a nearby station minding my own business and doing quite well. For the first time ever, I had a better group than my Dad … but only because he has an injured elbow and not as accurate!

If shooting like a girl is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

    I keep telling my husband we need to go to the gun range, and this makes me want to go even more! I really want to get to wear I feel more comfortable and confident with a gun in my hands.

      Cassie, you’ve got to go! If you’re husband doesn’t want to take you, or you feel intimidated with him there, find a gun range that offers private lessons and/or classes. You don’t necessarily have to get your concealed license, but knowing how to handle a gun safely and responsibly is very smart! I was raised with guns, rifles and shotguns, and didn’t shoot a pistol (handgun) until two years ago with Husband. Now, I shoot just about anything I can get my hands on! I prefer target rifles, which is what I’m shooting in this picture, but I love my Ruger .22 pistol too. A good-hearted competition with Husband is fun too, and who doesn’t love bragging rights!?!?

      HA! Why did you cry? Husband and I are planning a day date on one of his off-Fridays so we can go to the range when it’s not as crowded. I particularly enjoy kicking his butt. BUWAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
