I met Amber Baird in Maui! How cool! She got published while she was in Maui!

Happy shooting, everyone! Or angry shooting or whatever. I don’t know what your style is. Wish I were local!

Signed. See you there!

I have kind of a big ask for those of you going. Would any of you mind describing your experiences here? I'd specifically be interested in what it feels like to fire a double-barrel shotgun for the first time. If it's not a problem. How hard does it kick, where does the kick hit, first impression, that kind of thing.

If any of y’all see something that looks like a big, white ballon in the sky, I’d recommend considering maybe shooting at it then and there unless you’re ready to wait and let the thing be shot down by someone else a week later. Your choice.

Happy shooting!

I won’t be able to make it - on alternate list. But thanks. Have fun and be safe.

The first rule of gun club (sorry)...

I made the alternate list!! I'm not kidding, if people can't make it, I will buy a plane ticket. Either way, congratulations to everyone so far!

Great, I'm excited! I'll be there :)

ps. I signed the waiver too, so I think I'm good to go.

Have fun y'all!! If I don't get beyond the alternate list, which I likely shouldn't due to prior experience, put me down for the after-party ;-)

I want everyone to stay safe and be safe. Ultimately, I will be more interested in the Ah-ha moments people have from this experience. Not so much the sensory feedback but what sort of weird injuries did the participants get?

Will anyone get the skin between their pointer finger and thumb filleted open by the slide of the pistol going back over their hand that was gripped too high up on the gun?

Will anyone hit themselves in the face from the recoil of a high powered handgun with too loose of a grip. Any lost teeth?

Will anyone fire a rifle that doesn't have a huge spring in the butt-stock and bruise their body by resting the butt on one of their face cheeks or on their bicep?

Just something to think about.
