Learning to shoot
So...after a having to deal with an ex-boyfriend who would not believe me when I said it was over, I decided to finally learn how to shoot a handgun. A good friend of mine agreed to go with me to a local shooting range and show me the basics. My first time was a couple of weeks ago and I shot two different guns, both .9mm (one was a Taurus and one was a Sig Sauer p239). I really liked the Sig and did fairly well with it, considering it was my first time ever shooting a hand gun!
Well...yesterday my friend and I went again, this time to a different shooting range, and I borrowed a .40 Sig Sauer p226. I LOVED IT! I shot 40 rounds from the .40 Sig and 10 rounds from a .9mm Taurus. Here are two photos of my target from yesterday - a full shot and then a close up.
The ones way down at the bottom (outside the circles) are from when I shot the .9mm after shooting two clips from the .40 Sig. I didn't do so well switching guns partway through! All of the ones in the center and near the center as well as most of the ones in the 8 circle are from when I shot the .40 Sig. Now that I am a bit more comfortable with holding a gun I will be taking a handgun safety course and then trying for my CHL. If I'm going to have a gun, I might as well be able to carry it!
