I am a long time Calgunner. Male variety. I say Welcome to Calguns and to the sport. The more ladies, the better. My Lady and I have been married for 35 years. I taught her to shoot before we married. She is a small woman,only 5 feet tall.Her personal sidearm is a J frame Smith and Wesson. She has never had a problem with recoil. So I believe that with proper instruction, practice and support, even a novice can get over any fear and thouroughly enjoy the sport. I also taught my daughter to shoot, starting at 10 years old.
Her peronal weapon,now is a 9mm Browning!
