I'm taking Mark shooting this Sat, 11am. Comers-along are welcome, though be aware that I think we may only have two pistols for the whole group, so each person may only get a couple of magazines worth. I think Mark wants to play with my new sword as well, so we may kill some giant cucumbers or foam pool noodles after shooting. But there will be no mad, crazy ninjas vs. cowboys action. Sorry. ;]

Anyone who hasn't come shooting with me before, and has not taken a gun safety class, will need to arrange to come over early and get a half-hour gun safety lesson from me. And there will be a quiz, too! (You may study in advance if you like.)

We may need to reschedule or cancel the event if it's actively precipitating around noon on Saturday.

Naomi and I would be up, and can bring the plinker, even if it does shoot to the left.

Cool!

Now, I remember Naomi coming plinking with us before... but I don't remember if you have. Have you? I only remember shooting your rifle with McClary and Robin one day last summer. Geez, has it been more than a year already?

I shot the last time we went to the .50 shoot. I haven't gone since then. I think you're the only person who's shot it since I got it from Arscott.

Naomi doesn't remember shooting. When was this?

Oh, right! Man, that was a long time ago. Pa-chan was still in the country. Yow.

Two years ago in the summer, I thought. But if she doesn't remember, then I'm likely mixing up old memories. So, get here half an hour early and we'll go over earplugs, eye protection, and the three rules.

I'd be interested, but have to find a way up there. I'd also like to have that translation done for you by then. Lastly, I've fired everything from a cap & ball 19th century revolver to an AK-47, but I should probably have you show me safety tips anyway.

I suspect that between work, and organizing the shoot, I won't have time to come pick you up. I'm expecting to be at work until circa 9-10pm Friday night, and since I'll be doing safety class in the morning, I don't think there will be enough time then either. I'd like to give you a ride, but I just don't see how I can do it. Your grandparents won't loan you their car, would they?

It's an insurance thing. Which is why I only drive it around town.
