We headed out this morning to our 20 acres of heaven, which we affectionately call "Belly Achers," for a day of shooting and fishing. Also in tow were her boyfriend Ben and Sonny Boy.
We used a styrofoam plate as a target and after a short course in gun safety, M2 was ready to line up her first shot.
I brought my old 16ga Ithaca pump to break her in. The Ithaca is a smooth shooting gun with a minimal kick to it. She also fired a few rounds with Ben's 12ga Browning.
Although she missed the target on her first shot, she peppered the target on her second try. Success!
Sonny Boy wanted to try my Ithaca too and hit the bulls-eye on his first try.
We then took turns firing Sonny Boy's 75 year old Russian made rifle. That one didn't have a stock pad and provided quite a kick. And a bruised shoulder.
