....I am frickin hooked!!!! Finally got my first handgun last Thursday. Went out both Saturday and Sunday, probably knocked out at least 200 rounds. My buddy is going to take me back out to the range on Thursday or Friday night and help me sight the thing in, as I'm consistently hitting the lower left of the target. Kinda funny thing happened on Saturday though...I'll share. My girlfriend wanted to go out to the range with me, so I have a witness to this. Sent the first target down to the back of the indoor range (50 feet). Loaded five in the clip and shot all five. Brought the target back to see how I did. Put a round EXACTLY dead center of the target, took out the number 10 actually, that's how dead center it was (shooting a .22 Ruger slabside Mark III, by the way). Now normally that would be bragging rights, no? However, there wasn't a single other bullet that hit the target. Heck, I don't even know which of the 5 I shot was even the one that hit, so pure and simple dumb, stupid luck that the one that hit did so dead center! By the way, Shot another hundred or so rounds, and only missed the target a few times altogether, which I hope isn't too terrible for the first time ever with a gun. Just thought i'd share, as I found it amusing as hell. Even brought the target in to work today to show the guys....everybody is getting a good laugh out of that one! Thanks for the encouragement along the way guys as I've been talking about this for a month or so. I've found my new hobby (or obsession, depending on how you look at it)!!!
