“The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun.”


I have been curious about what it would be like to shoot a gun for a few years now.  James found this great deal on Groupon for an hour lesson at Silverdale Gun Club in West Lincoln, about an hour and a half away from Toronto.

Our instructor was a laid back guy, although he did keep mentioning that he wanted to get the hell out of there and go home for some beers!  He was very patient with us and gave us words of encouragement when we missed the targets 🙂

We shot with a .22 Caliber Firearm, 9 Millimeter Firearm and an AR15 rifle.  I think we both did quite well for our first time.  We’ve got the target sheets to prove it! It was definitely exhilarating and something fun to try out, but I can say that we will never have any interest in hunting actual animals, EVER!
