[do not proceed if you are against firearms]
Chelle recently purchased a good, old-fashioned .38 Smith and Wesson revolver (this is the weapon she learned to shoot with when she was in the police academy), so we both figured it was high time I learned how to handle it (and the Remington 12 gauge she owns) safely.
All things considered, I did okay for a newbie. I have a tendency to aim a bit high (so if I'm aiming for the chest, I tend to shoot the target in the head). With the shotgun it doesn't matter much because the whole darn thing just gets a big hole torn in it. My view is: at least I hit the target.
Here I am with the .38. Stand back, please.
