Bring out the big guns!

On Saturday we went to the shooting range with my dad and brother. I had only shot a gun once in my life before this and was really looking forward to doing it again! After the standard safety lesson, we took some shots at a target grid to get used to the guns.


 Next we moved to one of the skeet & trap fields to shoot some clay pigeons. My dad and Dave did awesome, but I didn't get off to the best start... 


Things finally started clicking when we moved over to the 5-stand. I hit seven in a row and was really stoked about it!


At the 5-stand, the pigeons were launched from several different stations. Dave and I were both able to hit a report pair (two pigeons fired from different stations in succession) and a true pair (two pigeons fired from different stations at the same time). Go us!!



We both had an AWESOME time and would love to go back and do it again!!
