    NRA WOA: Cowboys and Horses Comment
    Gregory Morris, 5/9/12 5:46:45 pm
    Apparently I'm so good at sleeping I woke up this morning to find out that I slept through unaware a horrible storm, a tornado siren, and the power going out. We've had some long days. I was tired!

    The storm did change our morning plans. No canoeing for anyone this morning. So instead Margaret, Marie, and Raquel and I went to Cave City to do a little antique shopping. It was a cute little town. Some of the girls found hats and other neat things. I, for the one and only time in my life, bought nothing. It was an anomaly. So after we headed back we went to lunch and got briefed on the rest of the day.

    Now it was time to don my long awaited SASS outfit. I thought I was going to look kinda dorky, but when I came out in my bustled long skirt, high neck shirt, and straw hat everybody loved it. I believe it was Kerrin who called me Beth Ingles Wilder. LOL I'll take that. We all headed down to cowboy town and had a mix of using some SASS weapons as well as a bunch of the guns we used during the week and were lucky enough to shoot some of the instructors’ competition guns. It was really cool. I even hit a 200 yard target with a high powered rifle on the first shot.

    Sorry that I don't remember all the names of all the guns, but there were just way too many today. It was really laid back and they let us shoot whatever we wanted and we all just took turns at the different weapons. I did shoot the Henry level action rifle. That was a pretty cool experience because I've never shot anything like that before and I shot it fairly accurately as well.

    It started to get pretty hot so we went back to the lodge to get ready for tonight's evening events: the Derby Party and fashion show. It felt good to get a little girlie again. I painted my face, put on a little black dress, and put on my big floppy black and white derby hat. The hats some of the women brought were so creative and fun! I was really impressed. We ate appetizers and drinks wine and of course mint juleps. Then we all received horse’s names on roses. I got Gemologist who I thought would do pretty well. We watched the Kentucky Derby on TV and cheered for our favorites.

    My horse didn't place in the top three, but the woman whose horses did won a big prize. Charter Arms had given us three .38s to use as prizes for the event! That was pretty cool, and in my opinion the women that won really were the right ones to get them. (And it was ok because I already owned two of them. Heh.)

    The fashion show followed. It was pretty interesting even though I'm not really in need of any hunting gear personally. Yet, Prois makes some great gear that is tailored just for a woman's body. We all know there's not enough of that out there. They were followed by Good Shot Design. Here's where I started to drool. They make English style outdoors apparel. It was simply gorgeous! The pieces were made from soft wool, were tailored with beautiful lines, had high quality lining, lovely colors and I wanted all of them.

    Afterwards I went to look at the line to see if I wanted to purchase anything from them, but as much as I wanted to I couldn't justify spending hundreds of dollars on one piece of wool clothing when I live in Florida. It's a good thing for Greg we don't live up north or I would have been in trouble.

    There was also “camo-friendly jewelry” provided by instructor Carol from the Elegant Huntress.

    Now at this point it's been a long week of good shooting and good friend, so we were ready to party. Rock Castle had a band playing outside, so we moved the party outside and danced and drank and talked. I spent most of the evening talking with my three favorite girls. In fact we were up until almost 1:00am chatting. These women and I really have bonded and have become sisters. We come from all different parts of the country, are different ages and have different backgrounds, but we have bonded in a way that I really never have with other women. They are all so special and have made this trip so incredibly amazing. I love you guys and thanks for being you. Just one more full day and then it's time to go home.

    Honestly I'm just not ready to leave. When do I do get home however, I'm certain that I want to continue to shoot and become better and better. Tomorrow I've decided to shoot some more sporting clays, as my free choice and I'm looking forward to that.

    That's all for now. I hope you have enjoyed reading about my adventure so far.

    Note from Greg: Sorry this is a little late being posted!
