09:39 pm: Shooting of a different sort
I think I have an addiction to target sports. Had the chance to play with pistol today and it was fuuuuuuuun..... *evil grin* Basically shot until fingers cramped and still wanted to go at it. Never mind the shotgun effect peppered all over the card(s). And the fact that I was attacking the metal struts supporting the target until I literally saw the paint disappear. The most spectacular part though, was when one shot decided to ricochet... and poinked its way to a student of mine. Yeesh. I be a dangerous, dangerous persun...

Die la... I hope this mixes well with archery - would hate to choose!

It's a different experience shooting with an air weapon. For one thing, I don't have to go pick anything up. Also, the target is nice and near and small. I like the feel of the lock and load, if I could just stop it from pinching on my fingers. I even like the cranky thingy, though that will probably fade with familiarity.

On the other hand, I love the exertion of drawing the bow, the split second before the click and then the feel of the bow alive and lunging forward towards the target. Best of all, I love how the arrows arc oh-so-smoothly towards the target and *piak* in the X. I don't even know where the pellets go when I piu chiu with the pistol.

Well, we'll see how it goes. Even though both my feet cramped up (really weirdly, only when I hopped on to a cab on the way home, it just felt like the bones were going to break), and I think one knee isn't speaking to me (from standing on it for too long without moving).

Wanna shoot wanna shoot wanna shoot wanna shoot wanna shoot.... *evil evil grin*
