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.
