Shooting Range – First time shooting guns

On Father’s Day, I found out that my cousin John was going to go to the shooting range the next day. So I told my sister, and we invited ourselves to tag along with him! Thankfully he agreed to take us along **phew**.

Monday morning me and Esther got outselves up in the early morning (something I haven’t done in forever) and drove to my cousins place in Murrieta (just a short 50 min drive). We came in with Starbucks in our hand and mini doughnuts for the kids. I don’t actually drink coffee so I pretended with my spiced apple cider 😉

John showed us the basics and safety protocols of handling weapons. Both Esther and I have never shot guns before.

Then it was off to the range! I wasn’t sure if I was allowed to bring my camera or not, so I didn’t come in full gear. Just my wide angle zoom lens.

Here we are.

We didn’t just tag along with John, but he was there to meet up with his buddies/coworkers. (John’s in the police force)

Me and my sister learned that gun’s is definitely a guys thing. It’s like how girls are about shoes and bags.

We also got to play with some of these. ARs? I don’t remember.

And you if you know me, I have to do something creative. 🙂

We also got to learn about the different types of bullets there are.

I had a lot of fun at the range! I want to go back! but it definitely does a number on your arms. The bigger guns I couldn’t shoot for too long because it got too heavy for me.

For me, the .22 was easier and I was able to hit more targets, for Esther it was the .45 where she hit more targets.

Thanks John for teaching us how to handle and shoot guns! I can’t wait to go again! 🙂
