That is great to hear. i was raised in a family, where all but my grandfather was antigun, [and all of em mostly democrat], but ive been able to educate a few of them, even my mom has a pink snubbie 38 and CPL now. plus been educating them on politics, that however has been less than successful. All we can agree on is that all politicians are crooked.

Well at first she was so nervous at first I had to start her with a 1911 model air-soft lol but she got comfortable with that quicker than I thought she would. Next weekend we are off to the range and I think she will all have a good time. She is exited to shoot my new mp5 in 22 cause "it's in all those movies" lol thanks for the great advice everyone
That is great to hear! Good for her!

My mom is the same way. I tried for years to get her to at least get training incase she does need to use a gun. But to no avail. I ended up getting her a taser and some pepperspay. Shes just so damn stubborn!

Good deal, congrats. Try and get to the range early so the amount of firing around her is minimal to begin with. That tends to freak some people out when they first go to the range. My mom fell in love with my Sig P226 last fall when I took her to shoot.

Good luck, and again congrats to you and your mom!

Make sure she doesn't have asthma or any such. All it takes is getting a slight breeze into her face and she would be as good as dead, or worse. Even the act of using the spray can contaminate her hand, she so much as puts that hand near her face and things can go pear shaped, and fast.

Better watch it. If she adopts it you might get cut out of your inheritance.
