A Day at the Shooting Range

Julie and Melissa invited me to go along with them to the New Haven Sportsman's Club for some shooting. Our friend Wolfgang has been a member there for about 3 years; this was our first time but I think you'll agree that we all look like naturals.

Then I saw the 45 automatic and headed straight for that. That made a pretty big noise.

This gun shot 223 caliber bullets, and made the biggest bang. It was the most fun to shoot out of all the ones we tried at the 50 yard range. Then we we taken to the 100 yard range to try...

The Semi Automatic AR 15. This is the civilian version of the gun the US Military uses. It is awesome. As you will see in this video:
