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 ...

Re: Need help teaching wife to shoot

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.

Re: a day of many first and a few questions

Thanks for all the replies. I will let her know her options. I am excited for her to be interested in her Ltc also. Hopefully that means we can buy more ammo and guns.


We are getting ready to head out to the range for another round.

Re: Fun on the range with new toy

Well another 250 rounds of ball ammo and 100 rounds of hollow points. Another flawless session. Now to clean her up again and put her in rotation.

My belt say "out for delivery". That was fast since I ordered it yesterday morning. Wasn't expecting it for another few days.
