Movie actress Lindsay Lohan is taking shooting lessons in advance of a visit to Iraq to entertain US troops next month (DEC06). The Mean Girls star claims knowing how to handle a gun is essential ahead of her trip to the war-torn country. She tells the British edition of Elle magazine, "I'm not afraid of going. "My security guard is going to take me to a gun range and I'm going to take some shooting lessons. He says if I'm going to go there I should really know how to shoot."
