My boyfriend Chris recently bought a gun. I was definitely all for it considering what the world is coming to, you can never be too prepared. Being from Indiana Chris has a lot of experience with shooting, even though I’m from the same place I actually have never shot a gun before. I didn’t ever really show interest in hunting or anything like that. Since Chris got the gun he told me he wanted to show me how to use it in case of emergencies (such a sweetheart). Ladies you know you have a good guy when he cares about your safety! I first shot the gun when we were on vacation in Indiana a few weeks ago, it felt different than what I expected. I wasn’t sure how I would react either, I know they can kill someone but I never thought of it like that. I know it’s there to protect us and that’s important to me. I didn’t realize how heavy it was, it wasn’t hard for me to pull the trigger but I will say I was a little skeptical about it at first. The one time I shot it, I wasn’t really trying to aim at anything I just wanted to see what it would feel like. When we got back from vacation Chris had talked about us going to a shooting range to practice using the gun. He found a place and yesterday we went to check it out. I’ve never been in a shooting range before, when you first walk in there’s a shop where you can rent/buy guns and other accessories. Then they have two doors that you have to walk through to get to the range. Then you see a bunch of lanes that are actually a lot like bowling lanes, at least that’s what I thought it looked like. There’s a small barrier between your lane and someone else’s though. There’s also an area for you to load your gun and set your stuff down. Once we got our target set up we took turns shooting. I never thought I would have so much fun shooting a gun! It was a blast, I loved it and I felt so good after it. I highly recommend doing this if you’re stressed and just need to blow off some steam in a healthy way. You feel great after and you learned how to shoot a gun in case of emergencies. If you don’t know how to use a gun don’t try this unless you’re with someone who knows how, you could definitely get hurt. This was probably one of my favorite things that we have done together and I can’t wait to go again!
