Many thanks to Nancy for hosting the kids shoot. My kids had fun. And it looks like a lot of the kids enjoyed the shooting. Of course, when the kids were off doing other things many of the adults started plinking away. JB Miller and his wife even pulled up lawn chairs to the firing line. And for about five minutes Nancy and I had a little competition going... that was until I heard, "Daddy, I go pee-pee now."
I can't remember the last time I got some time with a pellet gun. That took me back to youthful summers spent shooting bottle caps off of distant rocks in the backyard.
Mr. A Girl was there with his kids. His sense of humor about that nick-name was amusing. And I got to meet Dr. Mike (another addition to my "bloggers I've met" list), who not only helped with the shooting instructions but ran the grill and then gave us adults history lessons when Nancy pulled out her way, cool black powder rifle collection.
I'm looking forward to the next blogmeet, which is September 29.
BTW, it was also PX4 weekend. Or maybe it was just Open Carry Weekend and JB Miller and I just cowboyed up the same way. I have nothing unusual to report. We went to a Fairfax County park on Sunday and then to a family restaurant. Nobody said a word to me, nor did I get any stares or awkward glances. Truthfully, I'm not sure anybody noticed.
