Jack of All Trades

It just so happened that Secret Agent Man could not make it to trap shooting practice last night. So, this left me as the lone family representative. That wouldn't be so bad, except that Secret Agent Man has taken up some of the coaching duties. 

I don't even care to shoot a gun, much less use one strictly for sport.  Once again, I had to enter into man territory.  Signs were everywhere at the sportsman's club.  

They even had special ones on the restroom doors. 


These almost leave me speechless.



The Deerslayer introduced me to the concept of loading the thrower,



and then setting up the speakers. 




I have to say that the view was beautiful while we went about our work. 




Soon the shooters arrived and practice began. 



I made it out of there alive without any of that manliness rubbing off on me.  

And, The Deerslayer shot a 99/100.  

That's some good shootin', as the old-timers like to say.

  1. ha, "pointers".....this reminds me of when i was a kid. our family belonged to the local gun club and we'd camp there almost every weekend. there were lots of shooting events for us kids too and the adults seemed to have shooting events that went on all weekend. luckily though, there were so many kids around that we all found stuff to do like ride our bikes, catch lizards, etc...good memories!

  3. I also had to go into this strange territory. Little did I know that when I went along for a little visit to watch the Mister, that I would be 'filling in' for the missing button pusher and with earplugs in, I was supposed to hear when they said "pull", oh boy. xo

  4. I guess it's early. It took me a minute to decide whether I was a pointer or a setter. LOL!

  6. I didn't get the pointer or the setter until I read Lisa's comment. I'm getting kind of slow on the uptake in my old age. Oh, well. Good for you that you went and did good.

  7. That is real tongue in cheek country humor! My son introduced us to a show called 'Top Shot' It was great - marksmen from different fields competed - believe it or not I am the one not Dearest who would pick up a gun. But, I hold on to all my girlishness as much as I can :)

  15. What a good mom you are! Congrats to your son for all that good shootin'! Have I told you that my guys are all gun fanatics? Both of our sons were in a small bore rifle 3 position shooting team which won national championships. Our youngest went to the Olympic Training Center several times and got a scholarship to Univ of Tennesse on their shooting team. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  21. It amazes me all the different ways we designate the men's room from the ladies' room. At least people are still thinking and being creative. That's encouraging! Nice job of stepping up and in for your guy. We have to do that on occasion.
