I don't always reply to comments (I'm getting better), but I always read them. I really value what you have to say. A reader left a comment about storm shelters which led to last night's post. If you have a blog, feel free to leave a comment that links back to your blog. One frequent commenter, BadVooDooDaddy, has a great blog that he calls The Retreat. I never would have found it if he had not left comments here. I'm adding it to my frequent read list, and I encourage you to give him a try.
If you use Facebook, please "like" If It Hits The Fan. I use Facebook to announce when a new post is up and also to put up links or comments sometimes during the day if something new comes up.

Great Backyard Shootout
We had the two sisters-in-law and their husbands over for a cookout last night. One had said a couple weeks ago that she wanted to shoot my "noisy cricket." That's what we call my NAA mini-revolver ala the alien gun Tommy Lee Jones gave Will Smith in Men In Black. So, we set up a target and the two ladies and one husband took some shots with the cricket and my Glock 17. It was the first time he had ever shot any gun, and one sister had never shot a handgun before. They all shot just fine, and seemed to like it.
Exposing non-shooters in a safe, but informal manner, can go along way to connecting them and taking away fear or misunderstanding.
