I had a Marine friend offer to take me to the range and show me how to shoot a gun. I was ridiculously shaky and nervous but it turns out that I'm not a terrible shot. Next goal, learn to shoot well.

I went to a family reunion one year and went out with my mom and stepdad and a few other people. We were out in the country and I learned how to fire a gun. It was an amazing experience. I was actually a good shot too
