I noticed that I hadn't checked anything off of my bucket list in a while, so I took a friend up on an offer to teach me how to shoot handguns at a range in South San Francisco. To be honest, firing a gun for the first time was absolutely terrifying! Everything about it was different than I expected. The gun was heavier than I thought it would be, and it was difficult to keep the gun from kicking up after each shot. The flash, the smell, the shell bouncing off the wall to my right, it caught me off guard with every shot. I feel like I did pretty well though, I mean, at least I hit the target every time! It's definitely something I want to try again.
