Default It's contagious!

The wife and I got our concealed carry permits about six months ago. My wife had only fired a civilian weapon once or twice before she got her permit. She was a SAW gunner while she was in the Army (all 98lbs of her), but never fired a pistol. I bought a S&W 637 for her first gun. That's when it all started. She's been going to the range at least once a week ever since I bought it for her. The other day she shot an LCP and now wants one of them. My buddy's fiance saw my wife's 637 and yesterday they bought a 642 and are applying for their permits on Friday. My wife's mother saw how much fun my wife has at the range and applied for her carry permit and went to the range with us yesterday. I got her where she was getting a probably 4" group with my old .38 on her first day at the range. Not too bad for her first time ever even picking up a pistol.

The moral of the story.....

Get those that are close to you out and let them shoot. Start them off with something reasonable and let them see how much fun it is. We need all the allies we can get right now.

I'm hoping to get my girlfriend out to the local range in my town. Its time we share some similar interests! I've got a G19 (9mm) so her first experience shouldn't be too terrible, assuming everything goes right.....

We all know what happens when women don't get things the way they planned 'em :-)

That's pretty much the way it works. Before long you'll have a house full of guns...

Everyone in our house shoots. Wife & daughter have their own guns.

I've already got a house full of guns. I've been a gun nut for as long as I can remember. The wife is the one just starting to really get into shooting. She wondered for a long time why I need this new gun when I've already got all of those others. Now she's starting to understand.
