As embarrassed as I am to admit it... it has taken me twenty years and moving to Logan to go shooting for the first time.
Yup. It's true- Before today I had never shot a gun! Crazy, aye?!
But that all changed as I was able to *attempt* to go shooting this morning for my very first time!
So here's a little about my very first experience of shooting clay discs in Logan!
We all headed up to the most ideal spot for this- a big open area just a few minutes north of campus! Luckily the sky was clear blue and besides the slight November chill- it was perfect weather for shooting!
Now.. I'm not gonna lie. It was a LOT harder to hit the little skeets in real life than all those times I've done it on the WII!
And I really wasn't expecting as big of a kick from when I pulled the trigger!
Being a newbie, I did stumble back pretty bad that first shot.... and now I have a lovely little sore spot on my shoulder!
And while I'm being honest... I was REALLY bad. Like worse than bad! I didn't hit a single one!!!
But I'm sure this won't be my last opportunity to go shooting while I'm at USU so hopefully the skill will come with more practice....?? ;)
Hmm... Maybe not!
BUT even if I never do get any better it was still definitely worth it! I had SO much fun and am so grateful for everyone who took the time out of their busy Saturday to make it happen! I absolutely loved it!
You never know what random adventures are going to come up on your weekends in Cache Valley!
Only two more days until I'm headed home for Thanksgiving Break and then just a couple weeks until the semester is over so I've got to enjoy it all while I can!
I sure do love it here! :)
Wishing you all a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving Break this week!
Keep on Keepin' on!!!
