Sharp Shooter.



(Ignore my weird parted and fluffy hair. It was after a long hard day with Weebs and wasn't fixed. ;)

Husby and a few other guys have taken up the sport of shooting. Well, they've always shot, but now they are practicing a lot so they can go to matches and shoot competitively. It's always something new with them....

The other night, Husby was in the backyard shooting at a homemade target and I promptly put Levi in his swing and headed out to join him. "Let me have a try at that", I said as I walked outside. He gave me a giant sideways smirk and handed me the gun.

I shot once and did pretty well. I shot again, and...well, let's just say I'm a pro!



See the one outside the pink? That wasn't mine, it was Husby's. :) The one on the pink? IT'S MINE! I was sooooo proud! Husby couldn't believe his eyes, and well, neither could I.

I guess you could say I'm a natural.

  3. Wow! I'm impressed. I use to have a good aim but last time I went to the gun range I pretty much sucked and that was about five years ago! lol

  4. That's awesome...what do the neighbors say about the noise? Mine would have a heart attack and probably think that they were getting shot at! Ha-Ha!

  6. I did the same thing with my husband, except it was archery.

    Maybe women just naturally have a better eye? ;)

  7. Good job Whit. I guess all the target practice your dad gave you at the age of three paid off. I might add.... how many dad's would teach a three year old to target practice IN THE HOUSE? Oh well, the beloved .22 bullet behind the grandfather clock holds very special memories. I will never forget coming home early from a meeting to find you in purple sweats, protective head gear, holding a rifle and a target screaming, "I made a bull's eye momma." I had no idea everytime I left, there were rifle and pistol shenanigans going on in the living room!!

  17. The first picture is hilarious. When I first saw it in reader I didn't know it was your blog!
    I love to show my husband that I can do stuff when he thinks I can't!
    Did the gun not have much back fire? One time I shot a gun and it made a bruise on my shoulder. : (

  19. Great shot Whitney. You must have had a good teacher....like your mom, dad and brother.
    Where was "Pinky"?

  20. Oops--I guess your mom didn't teach you but it was your dad. I'll never forget when I started working for your dad at the old drug store. I was new to OK and new to LG and the Drug business--I was working and next thing I know your dad is standing back in the filling area and shooting a box full of old papers as a target across the room on DJ's wall. I could not believe my eyes. He wanted to show a man how great the gun was and how great a shot he was. He made the target right smack in the middle.
    There was another time when we had a rat in the back of the pharmacy and Kevin shot it right in the corner of the old restroom..
    So amazing..your family.

  21. My husband has a world title for sporting clays! He was on the US shooting team, but never got to shoot with them because of 9/11 - the plane to New Zealand obviously couldn't take off so he never got to compete. But he's awesome :) if Husby and his friends (or you!) ever want to try moving targets, his parents have a shooting range in Skiatook. It's called Longshot.
