Dad and I took a class at the Iowa River Gun Club range yesterday. About a month ago we took a class to get our Permit to Carry, and the man who did that class said we do a class at the range to teach you how to fire. Dad and I said sure! (I mean it was only $15 bucks and all we had to do was bring eye and ear protection, and ourselves.)
It turned out that there were only four of us in the class. Dad and I and a very nice couple. The other lady and I both had pink safety glasses, which is a very important detail...
We took it nice and slow. Rich set us up with Ruger Mark II .22's.
|Ruger MK II, nice gun. I highly recommend.|
We loaded one round, shot, loaded one round, shot, one round, shot... Then we worked up to two rounds, then three until we'd shot 10 rounds.
|1st target. First round missed by less than .25 inches.|
We shot another ten rounds...
|2nd target...10 hits.|
Then we had fun! Five rounds at a time, we had to load the magazine and fire off all five rounds in 20 seconds.
|3rd target, all 25 rounds within the 7 circle, except the one that whizzed passed his right ear.|
Afterwards, dad and I went snooping and he ended up buying a Mark III in stainless steel. Needless to say, as soon as I am able, I'munna be buyin' my own and down at the range a LOT!
