Gonna challenge myself

I am going to try and post at least 15 times this month. I should be able to do it. :)

Just like a female.....

I have changed my mind about not changing the URL for this blog. :-)

I decided that the short time of discomfort of changing all the links for my new blog will be worth it in the end.

I feel that this name and thus a new URL is more fitting to myself and helps that when you do a search for my blog people do not get a bunch of porn or even soft-porn sites.  Not the image I want to portray, not only for myself but for all the women out there that take gun ownership and handling seriously.

Here is the link to my new blog address:

I have exported/imported all the posts from here to the new blog, so soon this one will be just a memory. :-)

At the range today

Got another chance to go to the range this week. Oldest daughter wanted to do something today, but something that didn't cost alot. So I suggested that her and her boyfriend come out to the range for some practice, then to the house for a cookout. So we had plans set!

The range was nice. I am not sure if it was just a normal weekday or if the threat of rain kept people away, but the range was almost empty. Oldest daughter's boyfriend had never been to the range before, so gave some basics to him. He is familiar with rifles and shotguns, but not so much with handguns.

He was able to shoot both Glocks and my XDm. He said it was fun, so I have a feeling he will be coming out again soon.

My groupings are needing work, but that is just part of the process. That and my DH says I am too hard on myself when it comes to my shooting. LOL

A great first day of Spring Break!

It started kind of rough since I had to run to the big box store to replace my clothesline since our dryer decided to stop blowing hot air last night!  I am not worried, DH is very handy and will figure out what needs to be replaced, but until then we will be using the clothesline.

After getting the clothes out on the line I got my range gear together and off I went to meet up with my friend A Girl and Her Gun!  It was SO nice to get out to a range for some "girl" time!  Don't get me wrong, I love my hubby and my usual range, but I am usually one of the few ladies there.

Today we each took a lane and went to work on our groupings.  I really liked watching my friend use a deck of cards to improve her shooting.  I think I need to pick up a cheap deck of cards before my next trip to the range. ;-)

After spending our brass, we went down the road for some lunch and chatting.  It was really nice to get to know her away from what I read online.  Don't get me wrong, I love her writing and all the wonderful information she has shared with us all, but it is nothing compared to meeting her in person.

We chatted about how females, for the most part, are raised to "be good," to "not fight," and sometimes to even "give in" so as to lessen the damage to ourselves if we are attacked.  (Thankfully I was raised to always fight back and to not give in without a fight.  Thanks Mom!)  I have never understood what it is considered "proper" to give in to the criminals.  

We talked and talked and just had a great time.  I hope we will be able to get together again soon.

Name change...

Same URL, since that is too much of a pain to change at this point, but I felt this is a better name for me. :-)

Another post will come later.  I had a great time meeting up with a friend and want to blog about it, but am time restricted at the moment. :-)

Spring Break starts today!

I hope to get to the range at least a couple times next week!

A little over a month until our training down in Culpeper and then I have to wait until September for the Cornered Cat training!

My new baby

This little girl is named Kimber.  She is the one from our recent litter that I decided to keep.  That is her momma next to her.  They were enjoying themselves in the open window yesterday evening.
