3 Gun tournament!

Pistol. Rifle. Shotgun. And a bunch of ammo. Today Zev and Fi did as Louisianans do on a nice sunny Spring day, and entered a "3-gun" tournament which involved obstacle-course type shooting, using different weapons and different ammo. Fi wasn't sure about the tournament when she first started, but once she saw how things worked and actually jumped in and ran through the courses, she had a ball and enjoyed the challenge of different types of shooting scenarios. It certainly helped her become more proficient in operating the different weapons under different scenarios, and under "stress." Zev was very sweet and patient in showing Fi the correct way to handle the weapons and show her the best way to approach a course. All in all, we had a great day, not only was the weather great but the day was topped off with a traditional "Crawfish Boil"- Louisiana's answer to the "cook-out" where they boil big vats of "crawdaddy's" (also known as "yabbies" for our Australian friends), in tons of cajun spice, and throw in some potatoes and corn. For those of you who know us, Zev and Fi ate the corn and potatoes and left the locals to eat their crawdaddy's ;-)) We can't wait for the next tournament.
