Firearms Training

Here are photos from our 4-day firearms course. We shot 12-gauge shot guns, .45-70 rifles, and .44 magnum revolvers. I personally liked the .45-70 rifle the best. I felt like I could get the best shot off with it and the best aim. It was awesome!

Shooting the .45-70 rifle.

Oh yeah. Check out that bruise. It got a lot worse by the end of the day.

I’m dominant with my left eye, so I have to put by head across the butt of the shotgun to see the sights clearly. It kept hitting me in the mouth and I got a huge fat lip. I don’t like the shotgun because it hurt me, but the rifle was nice to me.

Taking out the bad boys.

Posing as a model for Revlon, check out those nails!

Visualizing success!
