I did it.

guilty as charged.

One might assume that yesterday I cleaned toilets,  grocery shopped, washed clothes, exercised, cleaned cat boxes and fed my people.

That assumption would be correct. I did. 


I also made my bed.
{Bow to the queen}

And at one point, I also faced my biggest fear. 

Guns. 

They scare the be-jeesus out of me. 

Now I can say they SCARED the be-jeesus out of me.


 I faced my fear head on.



My MIL and I took a gun safety course. 

And after a few hours of learning the ins and outs of every aspect of a gun…and most importantly how to be safe while handling a gun~~~

I had a gun. IN my hand.  TO shoot. 

And I did.

I must say, I am a quick learner. Unless I have to actually shoot a small black dot in the middle of a red dot to save my life…I will be just fine.

My fear has been conquered. 

I am woman. 

Hear me roar.



Roar. 

{Go ahead. Make my day. Punk.}

  1. Woo hoo!! Look at you, Annie Oakley! This is very cool. I'm proud of you. We've spent our entire lives around guns, so I sometimes forget other people might be afraid of them.Are you going to get a concealed weapon permit now? Those girls better watch out, cuz now you do a whole lot more than just shank 'em. Well, ok, I guess you'd probably still just shank 'em…

  2. Good for you! And it looks as if you are indeed a quick study – those bullet holes are very near the center! One more fear bites the dust – hooray!P.S. – I don't like guns (or knives, or other weapons) either.

  4. We have never owned a gun or had a desire to. In this day and time, it's a good idea to know how to use one though. I am proud of you for conquering your fear and glad you had someone share the activity with you.

  5. I want a gun and lessons too. I need to know how to operate one safely. Sometimes I have gotten a little nervous being back in the woods alone if hubby is not here. My dogs are great, but a gun would be better. I'm proud of you. Debi

  6. Good for you, Suz! Steve made me learn to shoot a pistol years ago, supposedly in case I needed it for self defense. Of course, I'm pretty sure I'd be useless in that situation…

  10. Awesome!! My dad taught us to shoot, and although I can't say I really enjoyed it, it is a good skill to know for when you need to shoot zombies or something. (Heaven forbid some other reasons which shall remain unsaid.)
