Oh my goodness, I'm embarrassed to admit I can't remember the last time I actually got to send lead down range. I'm not sure I could find the target at the moment. I've got to drag the kids back out and duel them with the S&W's 22's. We've basically had to transition to all manner of 22's to afford their bad habits. Our girl could spend the afternoon shooting prone and ringing steel and not take a break till the rifle needs cleaned. Momma doesn't always get the time to challenge, and she's a pretty good shot. I'm not sure I'd win anymore.
She sure sounds like a spitfire! I hope so too, thanks! I can't do much with only 44 bullets though. I hope to get more soon, but medical needs come first, and they are many at the moment.
Evening, I do more lurking than posting anymore, though if I see another lady shooter in need of honest advice I will speak up. I'm a competitive rifle shooter, a pistol/rifle instructor and RSO I am also our county's 4H rifle team leader. We built our program from scratch three years ago and went from 5 kids to 50 in that time.
Understood. It has been a year full of that type of obstacle. Had surgery in September when they opened things back up again, grateful to get that worry behind us. I hope you are on the mend very soon.
Hi ladies! I'll try to check in periodically. Work and life seem to be keeping me busy currently.
We are building a house for my daughter (hubby is doing 98% of the labor) so feeding the crew on the weekends when I'm not at work has become a requirement.
I also have a Norwex party going on FB right now so that is taking up some of my time.
I need to take a couple of my pistols out back and give them a bit of exercise. I have one I still haven't even shot. We are lucky enough to have enough property to shoot here at home.
That's incredibly generous what you and your husband are doing for your daughter! I am sure she's extremely grateful to you both.
We decided that if the economy went into the crapper and our money became worthless, it would be put to better use building them a house. At least if the dollar becomes worthless, they have a place to live. They will be paying us back but just buying it on contract from us so no bank involved means they will save a fortune on interest. There is a bit of selfishness on our part though as we are building it on 5 acres that adjoins our property so that as we age and need help, we will have them close enough to assist if needed. The son-in-law is helping on the weekends along with a friend of his when he can. Other than the concrete and the HVAC, my husband has done everything so far.
The other benefit is that this little guy is going to be my neighbor!
