By the time you read this, I’ll be far and gone away from my computer, off shooting with friends. With ammo prices and availability so dear right now, I may not get to the range regularly, but every now and then, a girl needs time with friends at recoil therapy. (I understand some women prefer spa dates, but I’ve always preferred 100LL or gunpowder to facials or pedicures.)
We won’t be doing this scenario, but here’s something cool if you have a gunfight upcoming in a work in progress, in a vehicle:
Once I get home, this is going to be more of my training than range time:
Someday, I want to do girl’s week out at Gunsite with some of my favourite female pilot & author friends. Not that all of them write things where they’d need it – and some are far better shots than me, and probably would be bored by any class where I’d be tail-end Charlie – but, you know, we could claim it was research, and have a good time.
The “if money was no object” trip right after that would be to Flinders Island, to beg Dave Freer to teach me how to dive. And possibly how to write something as awesome as Cuttlefish… or Dragon’s Ring.
If you could go anywhere and learn anything under the excuse of “Research!”, what would you do?
