He won.....

.......after all these years of being married to a hunter/gun lover, he has finally won me over!
(I look just like this lady when I am shooting too)

You can still be feminine and shoot guns can't you?
I mean all the gun companies are making pink guns now!
Actually I have always loved to shoot but Danny didn't want me to "Waste" all his ammo target practicing. I had no desire to hunt and kill any animals.....well
maybe a possum in the chicken coop or a crow in my corn.
My dad has always had guns around and he used to throw up beer cans for me to shoot as a small child and I hit them every time!
I am still a pretty good shot, not bragging but I shot a penny with his 22 rifle the other day and one certain grandaughter with good eyes kept missing it and gave up! She should be the marksman with all her practice over the years!

Anyway, I just purchased my very first bonified shotgun today!!!
I got a Remington 870 20 Gauge pump !!!!
I mean I purchased it myself, passed the rigorous registration and all!!
We are going to start shooting clays with some friends and of course we will have a few grandkids doing that with us too!!

Danny is happy with my new enthusiasm, we seem to have more to talk about now since I am just like one of the guys! However, Leslie made the comment that her daddy will give up hunting now that I have horned in on his hobby!!
That's OK he can have that coonhunting!
That's not for me!
Maybe a climate controlled shooting range will be more my cup of tea!!!

I have already put in my order for a Henry Golden Boy 22 rifle of my very own too!!!
Pretty good Valentines Day gift, huh??

I like to shot my hubby's guns too! I even hunt and have successfully filled a couple deer tags. I enjoy target practicing more tho... Have fun!

Be safe and have fun! I like to shoot too. I used to be really good at it .... the only thing I've ever killed is the possums from the barn.

My daughter was the only girl on the Trap & Skeet team in high school. She shot a perfect round during a tournament. You should have seen the look on the faces of all those guys on the other teams. Her team was really proud of her... so was I. :D

Congratulations! May the population of gun owners keep increasing.

I love shooting too! My family gets together for target practice and little competitions! Shooting floating cowpaddies in the pond, shooting empty beercans or targets on cardboard boxes (all against an embankment to catch the bullets of course!) We cherish our "Right to bear arms".

Yup I had my hunting license when I was younger on the farm and dad and I would go out, he taught me how to shoot as he was a sniper in the second world war, back then in the 70s here ya just had a licence to hunt now ya have to have a licence to have a gun as well, I gave it uo years ago but I still can shoot and hit that target thanks to dad ! Have a great day !
