My dad won a BB gun at his work's Christmas Party and I've been bugging him to let me try it. I know it's JUST a BB gun but I've never shot something and really wanted to. Last weekend there were 39432423432423432.4 birds in our backyard so I grabbed the gun. Ok, I didn't shoot any birds even though I do think birds are disgusting. I first aimed for the shed in our backyard-easy target- got it! Tried again and had success-two in a row! Then my dad threw a can out in the yard for me to aim for. My first instinct was to aim through the wood columns of the porch but realized since this was only my second shot ever my aim might not be the best. The thought of a bullet ricocheting (?) and getting lodged in my face or something was enough for me to decide to aim from another angle. But the porch was wet and I wasn't wearing shoes. Plus, my mom pointed out that I, "looked really into it" and I got embarassed. So, two shots in to my BB shooting career and I quit.
(I still want to go to the shooting range, though!)
