Shooting The Breeze . . . And Clay Pigeons

April 25th, 2012 by Selise

Behind the yellow line during cease fire


We hit up the shooting range a couple of weeks back.


I’d never been before. But it turns out I’m not too shabby with the ol’ shotgun.


I showed the boys up and impressed the old guys so much they invited me back for “Ladies Day”. And you know what? I might just go.


I think what I’m most excited about though is that I’ve finally shown an aptitude in some sort of sport!


That’s right, shooting is a sport and by golly you best believe I’ll argue the point.

Anyhow, about my outfit. A lot of thought was put into what actually constitutes a “shooting outfit”. I went for docs, leggings, an old band T-shirt, and most importantly – a puffy vest with fur trim.


It’s the vest that really made it. And I can tell you right now, it wasn’t just fashionable, it was functional too…


Shotguns have a nasty kick and while the boys sported some nice bruises I was saved by my puffy vest. It even got props from the old dudes.

    The best! Where is the shooting range? Frank and I have wanted to go shooting for a while. I’m afraid of guns but think it could be fun in a controlled no guns pointed at me way.

    I’ve never been to a shooting range but shooting is definitely fun! I like target practice myself cause I totally suck at hitting the clay pigeon flying through the air- I do better with still targets haha!

  10. haha! One of the very first things my husband and I did together was go shooting. I loved it! He has a rifle and I didn’t realize there would be so much kick back and ended up with a nice little dent in my face haha. Looks like you guys had fun!

  11. […] Hey, you know what’s really warm? A puffy vest. In particular, this puffy vest. Turns out it’s not just good for cushioning shotgun blasts. […]

  12. […] wish it was more often because as I said last time, it’s actually a sport I’ve shown aptitude […]
