Will be easy to spot for you... unless your gun has some catastrophic failure. Make sure your scope is securely mounted this time. ;)

And you can't because...?

I was 5 months along when I made that post and figured I'd be "too pregnant" to shoot a month later, but I'm actually still not huge... so I've decided to shoot. I'll be the one with the pillow for my hip. :o
