During my morning run, Kathy and my sister, Barb, went for a power walk. Afterwards, Barb invited us to go skeet shooting after lunch. Is she kidding? Who doesn't want to shoot guns in 25-degree weather during a light snowfall?
I've never shot clay pigeons before and it's been years since I fired any weapon but I'm the only member of the family to have any weapons familiarity. Kathy, Josh, and Steph have never fired a weapon before but they were excited to learn. Barb and two of her sons, Trevor and Parker (both of them excellent shooters), led us northward with 300 bright orange biodegradable flying saucers and more than enough shotgun shells to intercept their flights with. As would be expected, many of the targets hurled for us beginners landed unscathed so it was real exciting for us when we did hit one.
Kathy's first shot ever while attended to by nephew Trevor.
Josh nails one.
Steph does her best Annie Oakley.
