One Shot Is All I've Got

I spent most of my afternoon on Sunday behind the lens of a camera. I was sitting up on the side of the truck bed taking in everything from a birds eye view and watching all of the action.



The boys were shooting guns.

The dogs were being super cute.

I was perfectly content.

... until I decided that I wanted to shoot a gun, too. Patrick had been asking me all afternoon if I wanted to shoot and I finally caved. Yeah, I kind of did want to shoot the gun.

But they only gave me one shot at a time. Wanna know why?





I think I can see why this is referred to as the "kick back"

I know, I know, worst pun ever.

But hey, I kept my balance and I didn't fall over! I didn't even realize I was getting knocked back either until I saw the pictures/video of me shooting. And now that I know what happens when I shoot a shotgun, I know how to correct it in the future so that I'm not getting knocked back when I shoot. 

... you know, if anyone ever trusts me with a loaded gun again.

  1. Good for you girl for getting out there and trying it! My husband hunts and it dying for me to try, or even go shooting, but I haven't caved yet lol. I'm too nervous! I'd much prefer to be behind the lens of a camera! :-)

  2. Get it girl!! I'm pretty sure I'd fall over trying to shoot. I've heard the kick back is no joke! I'm glad you tried it and had fun though!!

  3. I've always wanted to try that, but I'm sure I'd do the exact same thing.
