Day 264 20180921

One of the activities at Rancho De La Osa is rifle and shotgun shooting.  Being from the UK I’ve never used anything stronger than an air-rifle so this was a new experience.  The rifle came first and I was more successful with this, hitting a number of targets once I had got the hang of how the sighting worked.  The shotgun was a different matter and I now have a much bigger appreciation for the skill demonstrated by professional in competition.  It wasn’t until my very last shot, the second shot of the final two cartridges that I managed to hit the skeet that had been launched.  It was more of a clipping than a centred shot, but I did at least find the target.  I should point out that this activity was carefully controlled to ensure that safety was the priority.
