Don't Make A Prieur Girl Mad

We got our chance to try shooting real guns at real honest to goodness targets in a real shooting gallery this week.  Jackie's friend, Tracy, is a competitive shooter and she agreed to show us how it's done.

None of us had high hopes, especially when she showed us the little tiny targets she expected us to hit.  Let's face it, most of the time we can't see anything in front of us even with our glasses on!  Expecting us to hit a black target the size of a margarine tub in a darkened room at 30 yards was expecting a bit much!

But we were game to try so Tracy set us up with 22 caliber bullets.  We asked if this is what she used and she said "No, if you have to shoot someone, the 22's just tease them.  To really get their attention, you want to use a 9 mm shell."  Ah - good to know.

It turns out, we were pretty good.  Or, more specifically, Tracy is a very good teacher.   Carm especially was a dead-eye.  Jackie was really good too.  I started out a bit iffy, but then I switched to a left-handed grip and I managed to hit the target each time.

My target - note the bullseyes
And Tracy was right - the 22's were great but when we fired the 9 mm shells, you sure felt the difference.  It would get someone's attention, alright.  Not for long though, because they'd have a great big hole in their heads.  Or wherever it is we managed to hit them.

So be warned out there.... we Prieur girls are not only card-carrying members of the Bitch Club, but now we know how to shoot.  Be afraid..... be very afraid
