I spent the day today at Eagle Gun Range in Lewisville, Texas, completing training requirements for getting a Concealed Handgun License. My dear friend Betsy also joined me, and I am pleased to say that she and I both scored 100% on the written portion of the exam. I scored 245 out of 250 on marksmanship, but I don't normally find hitting a target difficult. I spent many-a many-a many-a summertime day shooting distant fenceposts with a BB gun as a kid. I am dead-tired. I had to leave the house before dawn to get down there, and the state requires a ten-hour course, so we didn't get dismissed until 6PM and I didn't get home until around 7. Tomorrow I will post a photo of my target -- a nice little souvenir.
