I am really excited about heading out on this trip. I will be experiencing a whole bunch of firsts. It is the first time I will be flying with a firearm. I have been reading and checking the rules on how to do this and Tom at Range Master did give me the sound advice of NOT walking up to the counter and saying “I have a gun.” Seems obvious, but I am little nervous, so I am glad he thought to mention it.
It is also the first time I will be training with anyone other than John. It will be my first time training without my handy dandy back up man aka my husband. It is the first time I have ever traveled by myself. I know, crazy, but true. I have flown by myself to meet friends, but I have never flown by myself to a new destination and done the whole deal on my own.
Surprisingly, except for the flying part, I am calm, not nervous at all and really looking forward to learning, improving and meeting some new people. It’s gonna be fun, fun, fun!
My husband has a friend who is a retired Marine and former sniper. He is lending me some of his gear, which is crazy cool. I am hoping some of his mad dog skills are captured in the fibers and will be released to me once I strap on his holster. I think proficiency has something to do with practice and technique, but a girl can dream.
I have been working on some exciting things for the past couple of months that I will be sharing with you when I get back. Can’t wait!
I am thinking I will not be blogging much for the next 3 or 4 days, but will probably have time to pop an update or two on my FB, if you are interested. I hope you do pop on over and leave me a comment or two. I have grown very fond of reading your blogs and seeing what is going on in your lives and hearing what you have to say about mine. I will miss that.
Otherwise, I will chat with you when I get back. Have a fabulous time! Stay Safe!!
