“So Craig, you have two Glocks?” Carla inquired. “Yes, the chrome 357 is Betsy, the black one Maggie. Do your 38 Specials have names Carla?” Craig asked. “Yep Red’s is the Charter and of course Rosie is my Taurus.”
“OK 1st house rule. Gun control—we need a better safe! Kids and guns don’t mix,” Carla stated, looking at Craig for approval. “Yes no argument there.”
“When I have to go out of town,” Craig stopped talking shut his mouth, realizing what he was about to say was stupid. “Yes Craig when your out of town, what?” Carla asked him. Craig said “Hell lets go shooting tomorrow, so we know we are both proficient to use these. I don’t have any problem with keeping a gun close by, till we get some good security around here.” Craig grinned and was silent, thinking that sounded better.
“Second house rule Craig,” Carla said with a slight grin on her face. He said, “Yes, Mrs. Jones.” Carla pushed him down on the bed, and rested on top of him with a big grin on her face, “Yes Mrs. Jones I’m reading your mind . . .”
They headed to the shooting range in Carpenter the next morning. Craig stood behind her with his ear protection on and said. “Ok Carla, load up and let’s see what you got?” Carla loaded ‘Red’ and fired. She turned and looked at Craig as he brought the target forward. “Hmm, better than I expected now load ‘Rosie’ Carla.” Craig stated with a grin, but got a serious look.
“Ready. Got a specific place you want me to hit Craig?” Carla said waiting for her instructions. “Go for the extremities first. You have to disabled him.” Craig hollered, “He has got your child!” Carla fired Rosie.
Craig pulled in the target and exclaimed, “Shit woman, where did you learn to shoot like this!”
