There is one thing that Batman and middle class white girls from the suburbs have in common, an aversion to guns. That’s probably why I never shot one until this year. My experience with guns has been previously limited to shooting army men in the yard with a BB gun, laser tag, and feeling really badass playing Time Crisis at the arcade. Love it or hate it we live in a gun obsessed culture and I wanted to experience it first hand by pumping some hot lead into some rich American soil. So on my thirtieth birthday I headed out to the Family Shooting Center in Colorado’s Cherry Creek State Park with a head full of John Mclane based dreams to fire a deadly weapon for the very first time.
