There was not one, not two, not even three but four women at the range including myself this morning! Awesome!! Now I just need to organize us to meet up together…it’s on my list of things to do!
We started by adjusting Walther’s sights. I seemed to do a bit better but am still all over the place as you can see. The good news is that my husband and everyone else who gives Walther a whirl have similar luck so I don’t feel so bad!! This was about 10 yards out.
Here is how I did with hubby’s 1911. This was the first 8 shots I fired at about 10 yards away. Not bad at all! Right before we left I fired 8 more and it killed my wrist. I think that I was just tired at that point and wasn’t holding the grip tight enough so my wrist was getting the brunt of the recoil.
One of the men that we ran into last weekend was there again and brought a new gun for me to try. He invited me down to his bench to try out his Beretta Cx4 Storm semiautomatic carbine it was a .45, had an illuminated scope with red crosshairs, and had the long grip on the front which made it much easier to hold. I was super excited to have it in my hands and was curious to see how it felt when it fired. I was surprised that it was very comfortable to hold, and didn’t feel awkward at all. This is the first time I used a scope and must say that I totally felt like I was cheating!! It was fun to shoot and accurate but my shoulder didn’t seem to like the recoil at all. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a pic of myself holding the Cx4 or of the target.
After that excitement I sat down with a Mauser-Werke Oberndorf bolt action.22 rifle. I totally fell in love this gun. There was an instant bond between us. I loved loading one bullet in at a time. I loved its simplicity; I loved how accurate it was. I think I could have sat there and shot out all of the red in the bull’s-eye. So relaxing. This was at 25 yards out.
Another beautiful, fun, and relaxing day at the range!
Is it Sunday yet????
