Default Yeah!! My wife is taking a handgun class tomorrow

So about 10 years ago a bought my wife a beatiful Stainless Sig P232 .380 and put it in the gun safe where is has sat since, never being fired. Recently she has seemed a little more interested in guns now that our boys 12 and 10 have started shooting. For Christmas we bought her a M&P 15-22 and figured she was set. Our LGS is having an Introduction to handguns Class tomorrow night and with her approval I signed her up. She will taking her handgun and 50 rounds and spending 2 1/2 hours learning about safety, function, and shooting her handgun, and she is pumped. I already explained to her that I really wouldn't be suprised if she was a better shot than I am. i will keep you gals posted......and honestly I think I am as excited as she is.

Congrats Kelster, sometimes it takes a bit. Now for a word of warning: if she gets to really enjoy our sport, soon some of your guns will become hers.

I bought my wife a Sig Mosquito a few years ago thinking the little 22 would be a good gun for her to learn on. It held her attention for a bit but now "her" guns are the Sig, a S&W 386 Nightguard and a Beretta M9A1. The Sig pretty much is a safe queen now. I just bought a S&W 629-6 and she actually likes it when shooting 44spl.

Now, if I could just convince her WE really do need a .416 Barrett.........

Being north of 65 has definite advantages: I was able to do all my stupid stuff before video cameras, smartphones, utube, and the internet.

Yaaayy! A perfect way to start, with a handgun safety class. Couldn't be better. Just remember to stay home and let her go by herself. Or better yet, pick her up after class and go to the range, and then dinner out. What a great day.

Now you get to have a family sport and everyone plays.

What a woman can handle and will like has almost nothing to do with her weight or height or size of hands. We have plenty of 5' women here who shoot .45 without batting an eye...
Do only safe sex. Never have sex with someone crazier than you are.
Don't marry or move in together before you're both at least 25.
Don't have children until you're married five years or at least age 30.
Put 10% of your salary into savings every month no matter how broke you are.
Don't ever screw around with the IRS.
Keep a handgun on your bedside table.
Don't smart-mouth judges, or cops who stop you on the road.

Whatever you do, don't let her shoot shotguns at clay pigeons. My husband is going broke trying to keep up with my habit!

I don't expect everything handed to me. Just set it down anywhere. Unknown

congrats and I hope Mrs Kelster has a lot fun!
