We got a 12 gauge shotgun a few months back. We hadn't loaded it or anything so our friends The Richardsons who are gun gurus invited us out to do some target shooting. Bill taught us how to load it and shoot. I was so scared at first but eventually I got use to it, but I still don't like the kick back. We had so much fun and want to go again. We are so glad for friends who have knowledge in things we don't.
