We had a wonderful day out in the desert shooting guns with our church! It was soooo much fun, and so good for me because up till now, I have been deathly afraid of guns. I shot, and shot, and shot! I think total, I shot four different .40's, a 9mm, a 3" magnum 12 gauge, a .270, a .380, a .22-250, a .22 rifle, and probably more that I don't remember. But, tonight, I am way more comfortable with a gun than I was this morning!
We did all sorts of fun things like a trap shooting competition (which my dad won!), an impromptu handgun competition where you had to do push-ups or run around to get your adrenaline going, and more.
Thanks so much to everyone who let me shoot their gun (Mr. R, Mr. H, Brennan, David, Josie, and my dad)! I have tons of pictures, but need to edit them before posting. Here's a few fun ones...

|Jessie with Brennan's shotgun...she shot it quite a few times, and has|
a terribly sore shoulder to show for it. This thing kicks!!!!!
|Me with Brennan's shotgun...one shot was enough for me :D|
|Brennan with his shotgun!|
