On Saturday, the gun club held an event that is sure to become an annual activity — Ladies Day At The Range. It was a great day; a little over cast but that kept down the heat. A little humid but there was a breeze at least. And the turn out was great. By the time we took a break for lunch, we had some folks who had to leave…..but we still had a crowd.

We started the day with 80 ladies signed in for the experience. We offered 45 minute sessions for Introduction to Handguns, .22lr Pistols, Cowboy Action shooting, Air Rifles, .22lr Rifles, Archery and Trap.
I didn’t get any shots of the .22 pistol session but most of the group were hitting 8″ steel plates at 20 yards consistently.
The Cowboy Action session proved to a big hit with everyone. Some went into it hesitant, unsure they would be able to handle the rifle and pistol (.38 special) and especially the shotgun. This proved to be a non-issue, everyone was able to handle the Joe Biden approved method of home defense.
Air Rifles proved to be a draw — but for a different reason; they were much harder to master. The Club sponsors an Air Rifle field match so we set up the targets and it was challenging for the ladies to get hits — on the targets that were 30 meters out !
Trap was another interesting event; the wind had started picking up by the end of the day for us. Still some of of the folks were managing to go 6 for 15 on the day.
— and yes some of the ladies did wear pink out for the day. It really made me laugh to see it but the majority of the ladies weren’t.
Sunday my best friend arrived from Tennessee, he’ll be here a while looking for a house and a job. I’m glad he’s moving back to Texas.
Monday I spent some time at the range with my daughter; didn’t get any pictures of that but we spent 2 hours turning money into smoke and noise.
And on Monday I got some good news that I’ll share soon.
Hope your days have been as good.
