Jamie Garrett Shows Video Proof of Becoming First Central Texas DJ to Fire a Gun Live on the Radio
Saturday was Demo Day at Weber's Gun Range in Troy. That meant everyone got 5 free rounds of ammo to shoot out of the gun of their choice. The only gun off-limits was a Dirty Harry-style .44 Magnum. Until I arrived.
It took a good hour of looking up and down the rows of handguns and assault rifles to find the exact weapon I wanted to fire. Mark Gresham of Smith & Wesson convinced me to try one of the .357 Magnums on hand before he offered to let me use one of the guns labeled as "off-limits". The gun he leant me out of his personal connection was a Dirty Harry .44 Magnum that's not even produced anymore.
I've never fired anything above a .357, so the .44 was new territory for me. This is also the first time I've fired a gun with eyes looking at me. That meant I couldn't say something like I'd normally say while hunting, like, "Awwww, I just missed it. Did you see that? Ohhhh, so close".
The first two rounds went into the ground about 10 feet in front of the targets. I don't know why this happened, other than not being a good shot. From there, I adjusted and missed wildly to the left. I don't think the bullets came with 3-feet of their intended target.
