"For the first time in history does a nation have a complete gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient. The world will follow our lead in the future." -Adolf Hitler, April 15, 1935 in address to Reichstag
I got absolutely nothing done this weekend around the house. I spent Friday night at a self-defense class that was very informative and good. Now if I can remember everything if I ever need it. Warren would not let me practice my new found knowledge on him. Rats!
Saturday and Sunday I spent getting my class room and shoot qualifying done, so I can carry (a gun) concealed. I have had my permit in the past, but had let it expire. You have to start from the beginning when that happens, which I will not do that again. My friend, Karen, did the class with me. It was so much nicer having someone I know take it with me. On Saturday afternoon, Warren came because he was going to do his 2 year practice shoot. He did not have to stay for the whole time, but it was sure nice having him in the class for a little while too.

|On the range. Only 4 at a time went to the shooting line. Our class had 19 people, so it took a long time to get through all of them.|
|Rebound from the .45.|
|Now with my revolver, which was a .357 magnum. I love this gun! I borrowed both the guns I used--the semi-automatic and revolver.|
|My target. I don't get to keep the target. The score is sent in with all our paper work, and this target is kept on file by those who were instructors for the class.|
|Karen, and the shotgun. Isn't she a hoot? Shotguns were highly recommended for home protection since its bullets are less likely to go through walls.|
|This was Karen's first time ever shooting a gun! She did a fantastic job.|
