I was gifted clay pigeon shooting lessons for my birthday by my friends. I had never fired a gun before, and to be honest, I was never keen on the idea of using them. I always saw them as death machines that had no purpose other than ending the lives of others. I wanted nothing to do with them, and I hoped that no one would use one on me. As I started taking the lessons, I was afraid to even pick up the gun, because I was afraid that I would drop it and it would go off or accidentally hit someone.
The instructor helped me get more comfortable with the gun and realize that as long as I practiced safety and used it properly, the gun wouldn’t accidentally fire, and no one would become injured by it. I learned how to load the gun, aim it, fire it, and even clean it. Taking care of the gun was almost like taking care of a pet to me, except the gun didn’t defecate on my lawn or chew up my shoes. My first shot with the gun was a quite a surprise. The sound and feel were like holding a lighting bolt.
It took a while before I could actually hit anything with the gun. My aim wasn’t that great, and my glasses didn’t help much, but I learned how to adjust, and got to the point where I could hit targets. As I improved, the distance at which I could hit the pigeons increased. I went from hitting things that were close to me, to hitting ones that were farther out that it looked like they were going to hit the ground before I could shoot them. My progress was pretty impressive to my instructor, as he had never seen anyone go from being as afraid as I was to a great shooter.

My secretary was talking to a coworker noting how our office looked like it was a rundown leftover from the 1980s. She turned and saw me and blushed. I told her that I agreed with her, but I never had gotten around to doing anything about it. So, I put her in charge of contacting […]
Long Island is full of trees that have been here for many years. They were planted by the people who lived here many years ago and have grown pretty strong. Sometimes these old trees just can’t take the stress of the weather anymore and just fall over. This happened in my yard after a bad […]
My aunt Betsy was the type of person who would tell us that she didn’t like us to make a fuss over her, but I could see the smile that she couldn’t hide when she came to visit and we rolled out the red carpet for her. She was like a second mother to my […]

We look forward to shooting every weekend. Our favorite gun sport is clay shooting. Those little brightly coloured […]
I probably should not have went into competition bodybuilding. Not because I do not have the physique, but because I am a hairy guy just like my dad. I am not like a bear like he is, but I do have the chest, leg, arm and back hair that most of the other guys do […]

When people in my neighborhood started to complain that they had things missing from their yards, I was a bit concerned because I have a lot of tools that might be appealing to small time thieves. I knew that I could lock them all up in the garage, but I also knew that a locked […]
My last time out on a horse I managed to rip my riding jacket. I was really bummed out, but I knew that I could quickly and easily find a replacement. I went to my favorite website, and started to browse their rider section. The had so many different jackets choose from. I wanted something […]
