It having been raining on Thursday, I didn’t get to shoot trap, so I went today. And, I convinced my wife to come along. Now, she isn’t against my guns, (I checked before we got married) but she hasn’t been real interested in shooting. She took hunters safety a dozen or more years ago, but never really got into it, and hasn’t shot since. Yes, I’ve tried… but she wasn’t interested. Taking the advice of a friend, I offered to take her to a movie if she would come shooting (I hate going to movies, and almost never go, so it was a decent offer) and she agreed.
She was hoping to hit 5 of the 25 targets, thinking back to some shooting at hunter’s safety, and having trouble with moving targets. Instead, she hit 16, tying me the first round (stupid headphones instead of earplugs… or wind… or something…) and then 17 the second round (I shot 20.)
She had a good time, and said she would probably be interested in coming out more.
