“Bucket List” – Learn to Shoot a Gun
I am so glad that I had, “Learn to shoot a gun” on my bucket list!
I’ve always wanted to learn to be comfortable with handguns and one day own one for self defense. I had just never gotten around to it.
I joined an organization designed for women to meet once a month and do great outdoor stuff. The first outing was about three weeks later and I was able to take my daughters. For the first time we all learned a little about gun safety and how to shoot handguns. I was hooked. So, when I got home I pulled out a flyer out from under a pile of papers that I received about a “ladies only” shooting camp.
Best thing I’ve done for myself was sign up. Being taught by women is very calming and they make it fun. They don’t make you feel like you’re an idiot or get frustrated by answering the same questions over and over. They just really make you want to keep learning and shooting. They know what your fears are and how to explain things with patience. You really feel empowered by the end of the camp. I loved meeting all the other campers and hearing their stories. It was a wonderful experience.
I have since bought a gun and continue to shoot with one of the instructors (Debbie Keehart) from the camp who teaches locally. (HerHandgun.com). I felt so comfortable with Debbie that I sent my mom to a beginning class. You might see me in practical competitions some day thanks to these women instructors.
Thank you for the opportunity and happy shooting
