Stylish green skirt, check.
Hitting the target, nine times out of ten, check.

Who says you have to wear jeans to an indoor shooting range? Not me! I was more than happy to don my new Pleated Ponte Skirt when we visited the Phoenix Indoor Range last weekend. It was my first time at a gun range and I was excited and nervous and giddy. I had heart palpitations, but in the best possible way.
It's not every day that one shoots a 9mm handgun, peeps. I honestly never thought I'd enjoy handling a firearm (I'm the girl who gets scared whilst watching CSI) but I surprised myself by loving every minute of our gun slingin' adventure. It was an adrenaline rush like no other!
Scotty and I, along with three other couples, were at the range celebrating our friend Robin's 40th birthday. His wife & my buddy, Patrycia, came up with this super duper idea! I would highly recommend this as a fun birthday activity for men or lady folk. Plus, what's a milestone celebration without a couple of rounds of ammo before dinner?
The friendly peeps at Phoenix were lovely (hi Steve!) and also very patient with our group. Well, mostly me. They gave us a solid safety orientation and let us choose from over 30 different firearms. I picked the small and ladylike 9mm Glock but later on I also tested out the big boy you see in the last few pictures - the Tactical 9mm. That was beyond cool.
My facial expression at the end of this video says it all. Take a gander:
Happy Friday y'all and a happy Family Day long weekend!
I have four days off (four!) and am SO excited to sleep in, take in the Silver Skate Festival at Hawrelak Park, watch some Oscar-nominated short films at the Princess Theatre, and visit the mothership - my local Anthro. Maybe I'll even stop in and say hello to her friends, Zara and H&M.
Let's talk soon, okay? After our shooting escapade we went for dinner at my new favourite resto and I want to tell you all about it. See you in a few days!
