The "ME" version! GACK! My first range report (sorry, no pics).

Went shooting at the indoor range Saturday afternoon. I was shooting GPK's AR, and doing pretty well. I had grabbed a pair of eye protection, but I have a real small face, and they weren't doing a great job. Well, don't ya know I got clipped but good by a piece of brass that flew at my face, lodged under the edge of the eyewear, and hung there for a few seconds before I could secure the AR in one hand and brush it off my face.

I have a real nice purple burn right under my right eye. George told me I look like a gangster chick.

nice, huh?

MAN DID IT HURT!!!! But I kept shooting!!! Fun time, actually!

I'd imagine you're going to have a hard time explaining that at work though.



Noone's commented so far...but a few strange glances. They probably think it's something I don't want to talk about, and it's none of their business.... lol.

The smell of burning flesh, especially mine, is not one of my favorite smells.



Well, next time I'm wearing a turtleneck, too. I had a couple that seemed hell bent on leather to get close to the "girls".

THAT happened to me last time I went...rested just above the curve (that my push up bra so artfully gives me). And I was wearing a "modest" necked tee. Can't imagine what you ladies with bigger "guns" must endure.
And Daisy...I am sure that little boo boo makes you even MORE endearing to GPK...

Yeah, I've had a few fly down the ol' shirt before. Nothing like doing the 'brass dance' at the range. Owowowowowowowowow....looks like hickeys.



WOOT! I'm going shooting with you ladies!!

It is awful, actually. People are always staring, guys won't even look at your face to talk to you, can't find cute tops that fit, bathing suits don't cover anything more than a band aid would...It's horrible. Trade me for a day, Bee, and see if you can even make it out of the house.



Why would I want to leave the house?



You would have to learn to control yourself. I'm not sure about state laws, but I don't think that people look to kindly on men that walk around with their hands permanently fixed on their man-boobs. Not positive, but I hear the law varies from state to state. I hear it's worse in the north.




I don't think so...we don't eat fried hush puppies drizzled with melted Hershey bars and washed down with Pabst up north...fewer men have the manboobs up here than the Carolinas or Arkansas...YMMV
