Im not a Virgin Anymore......At the Gun Range that is...

And it's all Michael's fault..  lol 

There is a guy that T and I started talking to on twitter close to a year ago and now we chat all the time. His name is Michael and he and his wife live kind of close to us.  I decided that for T's little brother Ethan who turned 15 on Saturday, I would try and do something different for him. Well his is into the video games and airsoft guns and stuff like that, so I thought it would be perfect for us to go to a shooting range.  After that idea popped into my head the first person I thought of was Michael.

I had never met Michael before Sunday. Let me tell you that he is a first class guy. Nice as can be.  When we met him at the range, he was very helpful. Basically a teacher of the art of caring for, handling, loading, unloading and using the gun.  I learned so much from him. I really did. I think Ethan learned a lot too. 

So on the way to go to the shooting range, I had to get myself pumped up and in game mode. Like I was preparing for my own Super Bowl and it was my first time, so I didn't want to be nervous. I had to do what I do in the car and get a little ready.

Me getting pumped up

Here are the pictures that show some of the fun we all had.

This is where we went. Very nice place.

Michael is damn Jack Bauer.

Dude was tearing up the targets.

Very sharp shooter. He was nailing
targets where it counts.

Ethan with this big bad boy
had a little trouble with it.

Ethan had an easier time with this gun.

Me and this bad ass gun.
Wasn't easy.

This target was far away.
(for me)

I did hit one right in the center of the bulls eye though.

Shooting my gun....finally.

I got better as I went along.

Started to get my confidence up.

And then with the target a beginners
15 feet away, I had some good shots
and felt like I did a good job.

Here are a few video clips of us at the range.
Michael, Ethan and myself.


Again, a huge thanks to Michael. I had the best time and I learned so much. I really did. He was so patient and he didn't seem bothered by all of our questions and I felt bad cause it seemed like he didn't get to do as much as he would normally do.  The rush, the excitement of doing that was so awesome and I actually cant wait to go back again.

And since Michael took me out to the range I do believe that he and T now discussed T taking his wife out shopping.  More to come on that shopping trip soon..Very Soon.

Michael, it was a great pleasure meeting you for the first time and I hope we get to do more stuff in the future. Thanks again.

I wonder if I scared off a new friend?  lol

Kiss the Baby

No comments, WTH?

Great post Bro, you stepped out with your son and had a good time at the range! Better he learns gun control from Dad and friend, than anyone else, and you had a "BLAST"!!!

Great fathering!

Looks and sounds like you had a lot of fun. I'm glad you were able to get out there and try your pistol out too; how'd you like it?

I was sick and didn't make it out yesterday, but hopefully in the coming weeks. You'll have come visit sometime and we'll go blow things up. :D

I can't figure out how to do that.
