I spent my weekend (9 - 4 both days) in hunter education classes. It was a lot of sitting, but now I can hunt in Missouri, and out of state if I wish to. I got a cool hunter orange patch to sew on my jacket (?) and everything!
I also decided that I am going to buy a shotgun. It will be the first gun I've ever owned all by myself. I am sorting through Dennis's reams of gun information, trying to see what I'd like. I am leaning towards a 20 gauge. Hooray :)
