My oh My – this blog can go all over the place sometimes can’t it? My title doesn’t exactly say “weight loss”, it just says “ A better ME”. So today, getting involved in outdoor activities is creating a better more active “ME”. Some times you get pictures of me fishing, sometimes I’m walkin, sometimes it’s the scenery. Today it is about my new purchase….or rather Mr. Sandra’s purchase because I am not a licensed firearm user. He bought it for me .
Yup, I am the proud
owner user of a Mossberg Silver Reserve O/U 20 ga.
I don’t just ease into something, I get all excited and get all into it. Helps that Mr. Sandra is an avid hunter and previous active marksman but he is all excited about me liking this Trap/Skeet shooting adventure.
It gets us out together doing something that we like. Better than him sitting on couch watching TV and me cleaning the house. The only physical thing about this is using the upper body strength to hold that gun up but it is still exercise of a sort.
Last weekend we went out on Saturday all bundled up because it was cold and snowy (well I was bundled up). But we went anyway. Problem with doing a summer sport in the winter is those extra layers you need to wear. Which for me means that I have a hard time getting the butt of the gun to stay in the right place and not slide out onto my arm. Saturday I got hit several times on my bicep. Bad Bad Bad recoil. Although this gun does not have too powerful of a kick, it kicked my arm. I normally don’t bruise easy but I have a bruise now. One to many times being hit in the wrong place it sure makes you correct yourself before pulling that trigger.
This time next year you may see my name in the papers as an expert markswomen winning all the local competitions… ha ha… dream on….
p.s., I got two tickets to WICKED yesterday! Looking forward to it on July 5th.
