Last night was week 3 of FSU/CPA. And what were we doing? Well going to the firing range of course!
I didn’t bring my camera, but managed to get a few phone pics for your viewing pleasure.
We met out at Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy, and after a very brief set of instructions, we were told to grab our “eyes and ears” aka ear muffs and safety glasses and were each tossed a weapon. Well not exactly, but we grabbed our eyes and ears then patiently waited our turn in line at one of three stations. We each got to shoot a Glock (handgun) and an AR-15 (civilian version of the military kind, i.e. bad to the bone!)
After setting the picture of the lady (I think?) up as our target, it was time to shoot.
Now that’s a side of myself I don’t see too often. Sorry for all those who do!
We were told to aim for the breastbone.
Officer Fender said I got a perfect score! Woot woot. He was the one who taught the RAD class too and has seen be kick some bad guy butt. Shooting was no exception. Except I kicked bad hair lady’s butt, er chest bone.
Mom did okay, but I’m afraid shooting someone in the forearm isn’t going to hinder a bad guy as much as the money shot. That’s okay Mom- that shot in the throat makes up for it!
