I finally got a chance to shoot a rifle at the range this weekend, my first time with real ammo. I had done some “virtual shooting” at last fall’s BOW workshop. The workshops were sponsored by the PGC, but now are threatened with extinction due to lack of funds, which is a shame. That workshop got me and about 100 other women excited about outdoor adventure, and the short course on firearms got me interested in trying it for real.
Lucky for me I have an experienced hunter friend who took me to the range and showed me the ropes. Here’s my target—not bad, huh?
