Target Practice

Sunday the husband, the two younger kids, and I drove out to the Osceola National Forest in Lake City, FL to the public rifle range.

That’s me! That’s my first time ever shooting a rifle, and only my second time with a firearm of any kind. It was a beautiful warm day and the range was full of people, and a surprising number (surprising to me, anyway) were women. The first shot was a shock- 270s are loud- but the kick wasn’t anywhere near what I expected.

This was the target for me and the kids, at 35 yards. Not bad for a first timer! I enjoyed it more than I expected to and I’m looking forward to more target shooting this year.
