Finally the day arrived to do shooting! This became one of my favourite things to do. I am not a hunter, but I do enjoy handling and shooting a rifle. I was using a .458 and it left a big bruise on my shoulder by the end of the day. It was a fun day. We arrived at a small dry riverbed next to the side of a cliff-face. At first we got the hang of it by shooting at the cliff-face, and then we used a 5 litre plastic bottle for target practice. Eventually we started playing a game that Mark thought of. We would have our backs to the cliff wall, and Mark would throw the bottle behind us. As it hit the ground, we would turn around and have to aim quickly and shoot.
