Good morning! How is it already Thursday? This week went way too fast.
This past weekend a bunch of us went out to the bush to have a fire and do some shooting. This is a pretty typical day around here.
I was recapping my weekend with the girls at work and so many of them couldn’t believe we went shooting! They thought it was dangerous and irresponsible. Give me a break.
I was more appalled at their disbelief than anything. We don’t shoot animals, or people. We shoot clays, targets, or if your me, thin air. There is always at least one person there with their gun license, however typically those with licenses outnumber those without. We also only go to open areas where we can clearly see that there is nobody anywhere nearby.
We are all very safe with the guns. Only those with licenses load them, rules number 1-5 are never point the gun at anyone, and the most dangerous part of the whole experience is how loud it is!
I really see guns as no more dangerous then say, dirtbiking. If used responsibly, they can be a lot of fun.
So what’s your take on guns? Do you too think I am going to blow my brains out? Or do you see them as a fun recreational activity? Have you ever shot a gun?
