In this post, you will what kind of gift I gave to my husband during our anniversary. He's been wanting one for security purposes and his desire ignited when someone stole one of my FIL's collection at his house. It's a little expensive but it makes my husband happy so I gave in and bought one.
We went to my brother-in-law's residence out in New Cumberland last weekend so we could fire test the hand gun. He lived in a country side so there's plenty of place there to shoot. I was suppose to try it too but the moment I heard the bang, a flashback came into me.
My father owned a rifle before and he uses it for hunting wild animals where we lived then in Ligao Albay. One day, him and his friends used it to shoot a chicken for their "pulutan" as they drink gin. I was 8 or 9 years old that time. My Mom was cooking some "maruya" and my brother and I were pounding the rice to make some flour for the maruya. My brother saw the rifle in our "balkonahe" and he thought that it was empty. He pulled the trigger and "bang". A little bit later my younger sister Roselda cried in pain and we thought that she was bit by ants or something. When I looked in her face, the blood were pouring. The bullet went into her head and I screamed and cried. I felt so bad for my brother because my father who was already drunk then kicked him where in fact it was his fault for leaving the rifle unattended and loaded.
The doctor was fascinated that my sister did not die, he said it was a miracle because the bullet made a way to my sister's brain. She was operated and the scar is still visible on her head till this day. My sister however lost her hearing on her left ear and she barely can hear on the right. But we were thankful that she made it. She is now married with three kids but yeah she bears the painful consequence of that tragic incident. It was a frightening moment that I will never forget. I've seen the actual scene when my husband fired and that hindered me from trying to fire it.
Here are some of the photos I took. The kids wore the hearing protection that my SIL lent to us.
My SIL Jill is a dog groomer and they have four fur babies. We had a chance to pet them except for one who wanted to attack all the time lol. Below is the few snapshots of their home. They have a swimming pool and a pool house with pool table and other games.
Hubby fired ten rounds but I only found 7 casing. I dunno where the other 3 casing went. Don't worry folks, the pistol is keep in a safe place so there's no way our kids will find it.
