The Cheeky Reaper brought a few handguns with him including A Beretta, a .45, and an old police revolver. Each one feels, fires and kicks back in a different way. We started with a refresher on handgun safety and how each one works before we loaded them, applied ear and eye protection, and got to work.
Here I am with the .45. I really like this gun and found it the easiest to aim and hit the target with. Nothing feels better than actually being able to find your intended target! Nothing sounds worse than running out of bullets and hearing 'click' when pulling the trigger!
Here I am using the police revolver. I don't enjoy shooting with it at all. I find it awkward to hold and load, dirty and even tho it's a 'romantic' gun, I prefer using other ones. It does inspire memories of Cagney & Lacey, although their revolvers are newer and smaller...
A pretty good representation of an indoor firing range, smoke and all!
I don't remember much about Cagney or Lacey...but I do remember the great hair!
The results - the one on the left is a combination of mine and the Cheeky Reaper's (who happens to be something like #3 in his class in Canada). I was hitting all around the target so he took the gun from me and showed me there's nothing wrong with it by hitting the bulls eye. Not to be outdone, my shooting suddenly improved and I hit all around his bulls eye. The one on the right is all mine, 7 bullets, all on the target but one.
Here's what I wore - red skinny jeans, white shirt, navy toggle sweater, cognac boots, belt and watch. Pearls, natch.
Have a fabulous day!
