Shoot that Target

With all the recent carnapping and non-stop news reports about different types of crimes happening left and right, it's really starting to get scary to live here. But don't get me wrong, I still love Pinas. But we all really should start doing something about this. Be vigilant people. Be alert. Keep safe.

With that thought (being alert etc etc) I remember a recent bonding activity I had with my brother and Papa over the holidays. I have a feeling what we did is a pretty unique activity to do on Christmas morning. Guess what we did???

Target shooting!

My Papa is a gun-club member for the last 2-3 years, I even had been attending several gunshows for the past years with him. He's an officer of the gunclub of our town in N. Ecija. He's in the process of putting up his own target-shooting range at the back of our house. And that's where we were this past Christmas morning.

On our way to the back part of the house.


Unfinished target-shooting spot...


The bullets...


The guns...


Gearing up...



The targets...


Us in action...


I have to admit that the first time I tried it.. it was pretty scary. The sound, the recoil, the pressure. So this time around, to make it more fun, we decided to make it a contest. And the end result was.... it was a tie! :D 6 all. :)

I still am not a super fan of guns. I firmly believe that a psych exam should be an added requirement before people get their permits for it. So people with guns, please be responsible. :)

CARPE DIEM!
I'm out.
