|Sunday Shooting Fun|
Since then, i have finished my almost 3 week notice at my job and have been home for 3 days now, not counting the weekend. But, it can't be that easy, right? Since then I've also gotten sick. I almost never get sick. Boasted about how all of the folks at work got sick regularly and I always escaped. My kids got sick. Not me! My husband, too. Not me! I was so proud of my immune system. Well, that's when you fall. Pride always does it. I'm sick. Sore throat. Really sore throat. Stuffy and runny nose. Mild chest congestion. Just generally, ick. Well, I am trying to salvage my day, so instead of waiting to post on my new schedule I have for myself, I decided to knock one out. I'm sitting down, right? Should be minimally taxing and then I can figure out if I need to lay down again or do something else before the ducklings get home.

We have DD2 wanting to be a SWAT team member or Sniper, so I guess we need to practice, huh? She has a long way to go, but she seems to be a natural shooter. She does surprisingly well most times we practice. She enjoys it and we encourage it. Not for her to be a killer, mind you, just to practice, start competing and developing this interest. We like to be supportive. Besides, shouldn't daughters be strong and independent? My daughter, should she ever get lost in the woods, would survive. We keep working on all of their skills and knowledge to teach them independence, including in the woods, DH's favorite place. We want them to know where their food comes from and how and be confident to ward off unwanted attention, be it man or bear!

Here is DH practicing with his gun. I like this gun. It is dead on for me, but we needed to adjust the rear sight to suit DH's shooting style. More on that in another post.

Bragging time. See those 4 holes on the left of the bullseye? My DH's 9mm. Now, see the one outside at 11 o'clock, then two more at 1 and 2 o'clock, then 3 in the bull, with one just at 7 o'clock? Mine. Dialing it closer and closer with my .40 S&W Glock 27. I love my gun. I'm deadly with my gun. I'm happy with my gun. :) I'll review it later & my DH's for interested parties.
