Ma, You’re a Pistol


Your mother taught you to honor God, your country and apple pie. And on this, her special day, you should show her you learned your lessons well -- by taking her out for a little apple pie and then to the shooting range of the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area (2360 Highway D, St. Charles; 636-441-4554) for Mother’s Day Family Free Shooting on the Range. Everyone in the family is allowed to exercise their Second Amendment rights for free starting at 8 a.m.; you are limited to two hours on the range, or two rounds of skeet (if Ma’s into that). But that’s two full hours of quality shooting time -- as if there’s any other kind of shooting time, right? No reservations are necessary. Just show up, tell the attendant that you love your mother, and fire away. Bull's-eye, Ma! No wonder Dad married you!
