My Little No Arms Fan

I have someone out there in the world reading my little blog and commenting on my "Little No Arms" icon friend.  He is NOT scary, by the way... He is fuzzy, and therefore inherently cute.  For the record, this qualifies in most cases, except for fuzzy spiders.  Anyway, I know many of my friends who know about this site don't comment because they aren't members of LJ... Hey, I'll take an anonymous comment over no comment any day.  But if my Little No Arms fan wants to identify him or herself, I won't complain!  ;-)

Sniper

Interesting that today is the sentencing for the Sniper trial.  I happen to live in the community where the majority of the shootings took place, so it's quite a big deal around here.  I am in the Citizen Academy still, and when we studied the Emergency Reponse Team (which includes SWAT), they were talking about snipers with admiration, and how these bastards aren't true snipers, they are cowards. 

This week's class, we did Firearms Safety.  The cool thing is, we got to shoot a real Glock 40 on the firing range, and also do a simulation with "fake" guns and a movie screen.  It was awesome!  And the best part?  On the real range, I shot my entire magazine in one cluster around the heart of my target.  Granted, it was close range, but still the Instructor was impressed.  He said I did better than many recruits, and he wrote "Sniper" on my target. 

So, you better watch out, and don't get between me and what I want!  :)
