Photo 121 out of 365 – “Gun Sunday”

"Gun Sunday" - Settings: ISO 100, f/8.0, 1/160 sec, 50mm lens

After our scrumptious pig roast party, a few of us stayed overnight out in CT so that we could go shooting at the firing range the next day for Brette’s birthday.  I had been to a firing range several years ago and shot a .22 rifle – but yesterday I had the opportunity to shoot some heavy duty guns!

The guns from left to right are:

  • Smith & Wesson Model 66 .357 Magnum
  • Ruger RedHawk .44 Magnum
  • Smith & Wesson Model 36 (Chief’s Special) .38 Special

Man… I felt like such a badass!!!  Some of these babies definitely pack a punch when you shoot them – but I really did enjoy myself.  I remember when I was a little girl and we’d go to visit my grandparents in Buffalo, NY.  There was this place called Johnny’s Showtime that my grandfather would always take me to.  They had all kinds of games, mini golf, a ball pit and a shooting gallery.  The shooting gallery was my favorite!  Have you ever been to one of those?  Where you aim at the little targets, and when you hit each one, it makes something happen… like the little mechanical cat runs around in a circle… or the little bird comes out of the cuckoo clock to sing?  Now – twenty-five years later, here I am, shooting Smith & Wessons on a Sunday afternoon.  Definitely not my typical weekend… shooting guns and eating pigs… but I loved every minute.  Who am I?
