So anyone that knows Shane, knows that he is an avid gun collector and loves all things firearms related :). Guns to him are like handbags and shoes to me. He has quite the collection of hand guns and rifles and knows everything and anything you need to know about them. He has his concealed carry license and everyone also knows that it would never be a good idea to sneak in on our house at night. Just sayin :).
For a long time, he has wanted to take me out to the shooting range and have me shoot his hand guns. I have been putting it off and we are always busy. Finally this weekend, we went.
He made fun of me when I came out dressed for Saturday as I usually do in a cardigan, scarf, jewelry, boots and all. Apparently, that is not the usual at the shooting range. Whatevs.
I am pretty sure, me shooting a gun, pretty good at that, was the best looking he ever saw me :). I have to admit, it was fun shooting and very empowering. He taught me how to load it and all the safety precautions. By the time we were done, I knew everything I would need to know, and even more thanks to "over-prepared for every situation Shane". My favorite was the 9mm. I know he was proud of me and even mentioned getting me a ladies pink handgun. Puh-lease. I do not want a pink gun. Everyone knows that my favorite color is red. :)
It was great to spend some time, just the two of us, doing something that he is so passionate about and loves. I read just recently that it is important that wives remember that our husband's hobbies are important too. I know that Shane loved it. Here are some pictures he got of me in action...
look at my face here :)
Where were the kiddos, you ask? Well, Tara and Kristin took my two older ones and Kristin's daughter Abbey to Big Cedar in Branson Saturday and came home Sunday. My kids are so spoiled :). Bree stayed with grandparents. Here a few pictures of the kids from their fun weekend. Tara has a bunch on her blog...
