#12 Go to a shooting range


Even though I completed this task approximately a month after turning 24, I'm still crossing it off the list. I had bought a Living Social deal for Shooters Pistol Range. It was going to expire next weekend, so on Sunday afternoon we made the hour drive to shoot. And it was really, really fun!

M, not surprisingly, hit the bulls-eye multiple times, where as I'm not so good. But I feel like with more practice I could get better. Right? Right!

We're hoping to find a shooting range closer to us, but M and I are thinking of getting gun permits in Connecticut since it's simple, and we really enjoyed going yesterday. Another fun activity in the books!

How fun! My hubby and I went to the shooting range a few months ago, since we own a gun, but I've yet to blog about it. Oops. Haha

Even if you didn't hit the bullseye very much, you still look like a pro in the picture ;) Shooting is so much fun!

Happy Tuesday, lovely!

Ruthie Hart said...

Two Things:

1. I think that is an awesome date.

2. WHERE IS YOUR PLAID DRESS FROM???

Mademoiselle Michael said...

You guys are so cool! Love that date idea. Sometimes when my brother gets leave, he comes home and helps me improve my rifle or shotgun skills. But, he got all the sniper genes. Literally.

Um, the dress makes this pic. Love it.

Working on an e-mail for you today! (An overdue e-mail).

Molly Jac said...

How fun!!! I've never been to one of those but have shot a good number of times out in the country with clays and such. I need to hop on that, fast like. So glad y'all had fun :)

So fun!! My guy took me shooting for the first time when he was home last, we went outside though but it was a lot of fun!
