My partner and I have been considering learning how to shoot for a couple of years. I grew up with a BB gun, and my stepfather was a hunter, but my mother and he separated before I was old enough to learn how to handle a gun.
I used to socialize with people who were anti-gun, and then I started considering that maybe some of the way information about guns was being presented was not entirely honest. That Michael Moore documentary where he selectively interviews Charlton Heston really got my goat.
When I sat down and thought about it, I remembered that I really enjoyed taking my BB gun out for target practice, and that I was not a bad shot. Last night, we watched the Bullshit! episode on gun control, and it made me think I should stop thinking, and do some research.
So... I'm thinking that we should start out practicing at a shooting range to decide whether or not we'd like to buy some guns. Does one need one's own gun to use a shooting range?
