Since 1982 I have lived here in San Diego, but I have never taken a weekend in Las Vegas. Principally because that sport of activities that ones goes to Vegas to find do not interest me.
I have never been a gambler and I do know know the game well enough to make me anything other than a mark.
However, next month I am taking a weekend in Las Vegas. I’m going to do two things I have always wanted to do.
First, I am going to catch a show by a singer I like. (Sheena Easton. I like 80’s Pop so sue me.)
Secondly, I am going to go to a firing range and by rental, fire a machine gun. I have shot a number of different firearms over the years. (Owned two for short while but I am not a collector and I wisely sold them off.) Living in California means I live in one of the most gun-controled states of the union so I could never get the chance to fire a fully automatic weapons here. Nevada is a different story. Frankly if for no other reason than to write about them more competently, I would do this, but I want to do it as well.
I have made the room reservations and now I only wait to find out if a friend I asked along can go. (It’s really up to how much work he will have. I do hope he can come, such things should be more fun in groups.)
