There have been some big changes around here in the last few months.
1. I am pregnant (!!!!!) and the baby is healthy! If you catch this in time, my husband and I are doing a live video with an archery trick shot to reveal the gender of Ginger Baby, as I am affectionately calling this bean. We'll be live on Saturday Feb. 18 at 2:30pm Eastern over at my Facebook Page (click the link here or at the top of the page where it has the "f" icon). If you miss it, I'll add the link to this post after.
2. Our house renovation project continues, and the best news of that is: I get to put in a 10m air rifle range in my basement! Because a wall that had water damage (and dead mice... yuck) had to come down, it opened up 43 feet of continuous space in the basement. That is more than enough to set up my air rifle target and practice 10m international air rifle in the comfort of my own home! That will start sometime after July, when I am no longer experiencing this side effect of pregnancy where my abdomen keeps getting bigger and rounder (and therefore I don't fit into my shooting suit). ;)
It's alive! This ten year old target trap still works! Just needed a tuneup and some new batteries. Now to build an air rifle range in the basement... 😄🎯🙌 #airrifle #DIYrange #trainathome #cellardweller #rifletarget #targetshooting #targetpractice #rangetime #10mairrifle #SIMOS #precisionshooting #precisionpaperpunching
3. I am now getting to pursue even more of the things that I love through teaching handgun safety and basics at Pinnacle Academy in Newport, New Hampshire AND through writing a column about the shooting sports at Women's Outdoor News! This month at the WON, I wrote about why archery is amazing and how to get started. Check out that article here.
Thanks for following along with me on this adventure! I am so excited to be able to do what I love, and to share that with a wider audience through this blog and The WON. I can't wait to pass on my excitement and love of the shooting sports with this baby.
