Yesterday Was a Day of Firsts

Yesterday, for the first time. . . . .

 I went to a gun store.

I bought my first shotgun ( used, 20 ga. Mossberg)

I bought my first soft sided gun case.

I bought my own ammo.

I know, I know.  It's about damn time.  My friends and family are thrilled.

It's a start.

Today I signed up for a pistol class "for ladies".  The classes are full until Feb. 2012.  I may find something sooner at another location.  Tim and I also want  to take the concealed carry class that is offered in the city.  Next weekend I will have my first real shooting experience/lesson with my new shotgun.  I'll let you know how it turns out.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Congrats on your new firearm. You will enjoy it.

  2. Good for you, proud of you. Now you're on the path to independence.

  3. Im thrilled for you. Nothing is more empowering for we girls then owning a firearm and shooting it. Ive joined your blog roll and look forward to reading all about your adventures.

  4. It's good to see a self actuated individual. There are so many sheeple in this country, you can forget there are hard chargers too.
