City It’s Ladies Night!

Every Tuesday is Ladies Night. At the gun range. At yee ole Wade’s in Bellevue. From 10 am-10 pm, ladies get half-price lanes, and free rentals. You can rent a little handgun, or something more like this gun:
You can also bring your own.
You buy their ammo. Small targets are four-for-a-dollar, large targets, a buck a piece. You’re not allowed to draw faces on them.
Some girlfriends and I have been going, pretty frequently, since Christmas. For me, joining this new club was partially (unfortunately) inspired by THIS, but also by learning to shoot THIS, in Michigan, on New Years Day.
I hoped I’d suddenly look and feel like THIS woman after blasting through a bunch of boxes of brass, but instead I’m still terrified of doing THIS. And I’m too skittish to pick up anything bigger than a .22 in the loud chaotic range environment.
Also, for anyone who’s interested, here’s the HOW WAS IT? video I filmed at Wade’s last Tuesday. The lady with the customized leopard print fanny pack, that she carts her WWI-era .45 around in, is pretty much the most interesting person I’ve talked to in a very very long time.
