Don't Trust Me w/ A Gun

Last Thursday, I tried my hand at shooting for the first time. I'm not ashamed to say that I suck. I won't explain further but you'll see what I mean by watching the video below. At around 2:10, I pretty much almost broke the most important rule which was "make sure your gun is always facing forward towards the target". Haha, whoopsie!

For those who are wondering about the experience: it was loud, a little nerve wracking in the beginning, but tons of fun! I kept leaning back on my first try because the shell casings kept bouncing back towards my face!!! Also, I couldn't really tell if I was actually hitting anything - the target was too far for my near sighted eyes :P

P.S - i was wearing the same pullover in my last video... i swear, i have more clothes than that. hahaha! That pullover is just my go-to item of clothing cus it's so comfy (and i'm not just being biased. :P)


VIDEO: Eating my bacon cookie + shooting for the first time. 





Have you tried shooting before?

That look like so much fun! What was it like? Exhilarating? I have got to try my hand at shooting now. LoL. And now I want a cookie. haha

I really want to go to a shooting range.. Your video is so cute! I dunno about a bacon cookie..

This seems like a good place to go if I ever want to vent out my frustrations! I wonder if they'll let me stick a photo of my school books on the target, I swear my aim would be better if they did =)

Oh Kym!!! I wish we could go to the range together--I took K and now she is disturbingly accurate. LOL!

If you go again, try standing like you're going to swing a baseball bat, with the target on your left. Then line up the sights with just your right eye. Also, with your left hand, grab your right hand from underneath--that will make sure your left hand can't be hit by the slide when it cycles back and forth. I know the pro's say to square your shoulders to the target, but it never worked for me (or K). It could be a vision thing.

It didn't look like you enjoyed the cookie very much. =)

Happy Easter!

PS - And never forget to always treat a gun as if it is loaded--no matter what.

Ahhhh my experience at the gun range for the first time was pretty identical to yours. Ha, I just remembered feeling super overwhelmed and scared from all the loud noise. Will you ever go again?

Whoa Kym, you're one tough cookie! Maybe even ... a tough BACON cookie? Oh yeaaah I went there haha. And I felt a moment of pride and happiness that I sat in that exact same place as the cameraman (Winmark) in the car :) Love all the new things you try out!

P.S. My word verficiation is 'lusingna' which reminds me of 'lasagna' which makes me hungry so I think you owe me food :D

The boyfriend is into this. His parents are also into it. Probably coz his dad's in the navy. Hehe. I went with them once but I didn't try it. I do not want to hold a gun. I think I'll have to give it a shot (ehehe) eventually because his family's into it. :S

InsideOut Elle said...

MJ {The Honeypie Archives} said...

Believe it or not I used to work at rifle manufacturing company (in Accounting) so I was able to shoot a couple guns there, they had a range out back. I actually like it, it's kind of fun! Looks like you had fun!

steph said...

i've gone shooting quite a few times & i have to say - i STILL SUCK at it! i would think i would get used to it, but the noise, the backlash, i still suck! i don't know how people do it on a regular basis!
