I failed the easiest math placement test UH had

I didn't feel so bad about it when I realized that it was all stuff I had been taught 4 whole years ago (and probably forgot 3 years ago). I'm going to try the Pre-Calculus one later, since I took that class this year and still have some of my notes

A couple weeks ago I heard shots firing outside my house, so I went outside to check (this usually means my dad is test firing a gun with a customer, and I always come out to check and or get some trigger time). I came outside to find a blonde in her late 30s early 40s shooting a Ruger Mk II with target grips and a compensator.

In a state like NY, finding girls who like guns is kind of difficult, so it drew my interests that she was a shooter. Her problem was she was right handed but left eye-dominant. So I recommended to tape over the left eye of her shooting goggles (a common "fix" for incompatable eye to hand dominance), try shooting south paw (which due to the right-handed hand-hugging grips, wasn't possible), or to modify her form so that she could instinctively bring the gun to center in front of her left eye. She found the last one most useful after some practice.

I put a mag through it after her, and despite how much I dislike the Ruger's target sights (I don't like big blocky sights), I was popping the steel spinners most of the time.

We went back in the shop and she was talking about how she was addicted to buying new guns. She was looking through the catalogue for a new Kimber pistol. She had recently bought the kimber ultra rcp II 45, but didn't like it because the sights were too low-profile. I recommended the Ultra Raptor II and she said, "That was the one I wanted!" Then she talked about how she used to carry a SIG P238, which she had then replaced with a SIG P250 (which she said sucked, which I kind of expected of them), then moved on to a SIG P239, then went to the Kimbers. She also talked about wanting to get a Micro Desert Eagle or maybe an AMT Backup.

Just the fact she knew all these different varients (my dad was lost for most of this conversation) was pretty impressive. I may be turning 18 this month, but I admit I checked for a ring. Which was MIA. Not that I made any investment there, but the gun love gave me some older woman fever.

I wish my mom would stop complaining about every little thing I do (like not taking a shower in the morning and going to C.R. Hero's for lunch).
