Today we completed the classroom requirement of the Ohio CCW course and tomorrow evening we get instruction on the range. Leah, the NRA certified instructor and manager at Sherwin, told us she'll teach us some tricks to help us be better shooters and will have us shoot one handed with our non-dominant hand. I'm excited and a little nervous but really looking forward to learning anything that can help me.
Along with being gorgeous, Leah's really funny and smart and she totally exudes confidence. I've often wondered about her story - how did she start shooting, how does she know so much, how did she get to be NRA certified? Today I found out that when she first started at Sherwin five years ago, she didn't like guns and had never shot one in her life - they had initially hired her as one of their calendar/gun girl models.* She told us that on her first shoot they had her wear a holstered pistol and she was afraid she'd "shoot her ass off." The guys at the range eventually convinced Leah to try shooting and she said she was instantly hooked. Many hours of education (and boxes and boxes of ammunition) later, Leah has become an expert at what she does and is passionate about teaching others about their right to self defense.
*poke around on their site and you'll see her. Which one? Not telling.
