no need to 'police your brass'

Tonight we met at Wade's Gun Range. The Wrights with their semi-automatic handgun and Andy with his 44-Magnum Black Ruger (think John Wayne). Andy's has a serious recoil but with 2 hands and a little muscle it's fun and accurate to shoot. You have to cock it each shot and it only has 6 shots before you have to reload. Trav's is definitely lighter and easier to shoot - I did pretty good - after I figured out how to aim and told myself to 'relax'.

Husbands preparing
Nicki did REALLY good! She's gonna get a t-shirt that says "Don't Mess" with a picture of her target that has holes all thru the middle.
I didn't shoot anyone, guess that means I did good.
Nicki and Trav - the muffs are so cute huh!?
Aren't we cute?!

We had a great time and took some good pictures - too bad there aren't any from the front. They don't allow people out in the range - even if you have a camera.
Something about people shooting real guns with real bullets ...

Now that's my kind of night. I love the final shot of both of you. Andy is so comical in his "why more pictures?" look! I would love to see a shot of you with the gun up like you see in all those action movies. Your hair perfect, except for one strand in your eyes and your mouth in a snarl as if to say "Angelina Jolie, eat your heart out!"
