Field Trip

One of the fun parts of the Terrell Citizens Police Academy class was our trip to the gun range.  After some instruction by the officers we were able to shoot hand guns, rifles and a few tried the shot gun. The purpose of the day at the range is to let us know what types of weapons our police officers have available to them, what each weapon is capable of, and what types of weapons the bad guys use.  This Thursday is our class graduation.  Friday, I'll have a write up on my thoughts of the class.

j'ai fait un essais une fois de tirer au pistolet, mais j'etais vraiment nul ;)

Nice series of shots. This post highlights a difference b/t Terrell and Sarasota. Shooting weapons is not part of the Sarasota citizens academy. (And, I doubt it ever would be.) Very cool experience for the Terrel participants.

A citizens' academy is an interesting concept and one which, I hope, will lend support to those men and women who do a difficult and dangerous job.

Is that an old aerosmith song? Jimmy's gotta gun?

So how did you do? Hit the bullseye every time? We have a local gun range (haven't been for a long time) but there is a difference. We cannot use targets with human shapes or figures. A few years ago some of the shooters wanted to put up pics of Osama bin Laden!
