Joel had experience shooting rifles, but his desire was to shoot a fully automatic gun. That is a very hard dream to arrange due to Federal and State government restrictions, but we came up with a fun alternative!
Joel was able to shoot at an indoor range graciously provided by Fin, Feather, and Fur of Ashland, Ohio. After a refresher course on gun safety, Joel shot a 9mm (semi auto), a .357 and a .38! He also enjoyed browsing through the store, and especially appreciated the large taxidermy animals. We wound up the dream with a stop at Wendy's for a quick snack.
It was a terrific afternoon adventure which brought back great memories of the past, yet allowed for the first time thrill with the pistols.
