To my surprise, I didn’t do horribly on my shooting. I hit a couple small targets (glass ones that shattered when you hit ’em) at 50 yards. I really didn’t shoot a lot since the competitions were going on, but I did load the gun on my own for the first time.
I’m still a little freaked out that I’ve now loaded and shot a gun and am getting to the point where I’m pretty comfortable doing so. I still don’t think I could kill a deer… or elk… or any living animal that isn’t a snake, arachnid or insect.
