Re: Shotgun selection

Not sure if it would be a good clay gun but hard to beat my benelli nova. You can look at the super nova also for less recoil.

Re: Wtb 1911 IWB/OWB and shoulder holster.

I have used DM Bullard leather for years and they are an excellent choice. After reading the above post ref Randy Warren holsters, I ordered one and received it today (2 week turnaround). The quality and craftsmanship is fantastic. His communication is prompt. He has moved to the top of my list.......

Re: Need help teaching wife to shoot

Going to echo what many others have said. Get someone else to do it. I don't care how good you are, how great you can teach someone else. Too much emotional stuff in the way when it is someone close. I tried teaching mine and she is a good enough sport to go along with it, and I was able to get her...

Re: Need help teaching wife to shoot

I'll try and keep an eye on this thread. I have a few different .22's from a revolver to a couple different semiautos and a really sweet shooting .357mag revolver that also takes .38 rounds. If there isn't anyone closer to you that you are able to get together with then we'll see if we can arrange ...

Thanks for all the replies. She is scared and has admitted it. We are using electronic ear muffs. No cheap ear plugs. And we are using eye protection. We have done the dominate eye test.
