‘Piece of cake’: Grams pop off a few rounds on the range for the first time (VIDEO)

Willow and Maryann started off nervous and with low expectations but, after some basic instruction, were ringing steel with a 9mm.

We don’t normally expect the best from Buzz Feed when it comes to guns, but they took a couple of first time shooters in their golden years to the Oak Tree Gun Club and in the end they learned some things and had some fun without bringing up gun politics (much).

Sure, we winced once or twice. Maybe three times. But in the end it seemed a good experience. We’d operate with Willow.

Best line: “Something about holding that gun and shooting the target made me feel very quiet and centered inside and that me and the target be one and the same.”
