Better Watch Out!
This past weekend we we shooting with the two Japanese guys who are currently over from Japan to implement some Toyota training.
Apparently in Japan they don’t have access to guns. Only police have them. Shooting guns in America was a huge deal for them.
Asai San is around my age, near 30 give or take a few years. Ito San is a tiny Japanese man who is probably in his 50’s.
They are fairly adorable, and every time I’ve met them they have bowed dramatically. I could get used to that. Every time I say hello to a man he should bow to me.
Anyway, as soon as we got to the shooting range they were shocked at the sheer number of guns on the walls and in display cases. With limited English they immediately wanted to know if you could buy one. When we told them as long as you have no criminal history you can buy a gun instantly they could not believe it.
We brought our own guns and we also rented a couple different ones to let them try.
Tiny, austere Ito San proclaimed that he felt like James Bond.
It was a lot of fun. They were shocked at the amount of recoil!
Here is the part I find moderately embarrassing, slightly flattering, and mostly just hilarious:
Apparently word has gotten back to Tyler at work that the Japanese are telling people about Tyler’s beautiful wife who has impressive shooting skills.
Me and my little friend, Walther PK380, soon to be joined by my new more powerful little friend who is an XDs.
For some reason I can’t stop laughing. At least my mediocre aim can impress someone out there.
