    I finally know what I want to be when I grow up!

    Well actually, the plan is to grow old eventually but never actually grow up.

    Anyhow, here's the thing: my instructors are starting to teach a new NRA course, but they needed a "trial run class" for practice, and to de-bug before they do an actual class with students they don't know. So we did a friends-and-family one today.

    I think...no, I'm sure...I would LOVE to eventually become an instructor! It was so much fun! Not that I did anything in actuality, but one of the other ladies was new to shooting, and she had a few questions that I was able to answer (even with my tiny amount of knowledge so far) and actually SHOW her, as far as operation, with my (empty and cleared) gun and holster.

    And still teaching Bunny Jr. every chance I get.

    Wonder how long it will take till I'm ready to actually get certified and such? Still, it's a definite goal that I have decided to work towards.

    And then just to make this the most awesome day ever, I totally rocked the qual target...



    And then when I got home, Mr. Bunny says to me "Bunny, what's that place you said you wanted to go to? The one with the guns and the helicopter?" I said "um, Blackwater?" He said "Yep. Well I'm sending you when you're ready to go."

    *happy bouncy dance* Could this day get any better? I need to go get a lottery ticket now!

    Bunny,

    I think they are called XE now.

    You'll love their training it's great!! We send teams up there all the time from Ft Bragg.

    I'm hoping you get the course that teaches you drive and shoot techniques. Make sure you get some souvenirs.

    My plan too!!

    Sounds like you've got a great guy on your hands to send you to Blackwater. I wish Mrs. GunnyBunny would send me there.

    Dal -- XE? Oops! Noted.

    Not sure what I would like to take there, only that I know I'm not ready YET. But hopefully by late fall? Here's my goal: I want to be able to shoot out of a helicopter. I'm sure they do that there for like SWAT training people only, but HOW COOL would that be? I've never been in a helicopter, and to be able to say, once in my life, I was...at XE...shooting? Oh my gosh, scratch that off my list of 5 things to do before I die! :)

    GunnyBunny -- He is! Hmm...want me to have a chat w/ Mrs. GunnyBunny? Tell her she owes me one for that dog rescue, and she can pay me back by sending you there! LOL. (I'm serious.)

    Sounds like a good goal. I eventually would like to take handgun and driving courses at Blackwater.

    Nice big hole in the 10 ring you have there!

    Growing OLD is mandatory.

    Growing UP remains optional.

    Yeah some of my friends in the SpecOps are calling them The Knights Who Say XE! which is funnier if you've ever seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail.... Better if you were inebriated when you saw it....
