I enjoy shooting.  Dad and I did both skeet shooting and target shooting when I was a teenager and after going to the indoor range down in Garland, I discovered that I still enjoy it and would like to get back into it.  Unfortunately, guns are expensive.  I guess that’s good – you don‘t want to have a crappy gun that could blow up in your face.

I first priced shotguns and these are pretty reasonably priced if you look for sales. Of course, I’d need to get a membership at a club somewhere so that I’d have a place to shoot as well as all the catapults and stuff.  Either that or drive two hours to Steve’s and clutter up his yard with bits of clay.

I also priced a handgun for target shooting but these are terribly expensive.  I’ve never met anyone with only one; most guys if they have a gun at all, will have several but I’m not sure how they justify the expense.  I decided instead to buy an airsoft pistol.  These are much more reasonably priced and are accurate reproductions of the real thing and you get to shoot at cans in the back yard and not worry about hurting anybody or bothering anyone with the noise.

Evan and I have already had some good fun out there with it.

The shotgun is still on my list though.
