Shooting range

Something you'll probably not see me doing very often is firing a .44 Magnum revolver. Now I've never been into guns or hunting, and have never felt the need to own a firearm for any reason (and probably never will). But being from West Virginia, I have many friends who are, so every once in a rare while I get the chance to shoot a few rounds. Today I went with a couple of friends from church to the shooting range at Kanawha State Forest, and had the opportunity to try out their array of pistols and rifles of various calibers, the largest being a .44 revolver. The recoil and noise the .44 makes is pretty impressive, and my ears were ringing even with earplugs in. After a few tries I was able to actually hit the targets a couple of times. It was fun, but I'm not going to run out and spend $500 on one of these things anytime soon. Since I don't do this very often, I grabbed a couple of minutes of video for posterity.
