My wife enjoys shooting and has taken her CCW class and is awaiting her permit. She is very anxious to get it and loves going to the range. We go just about every weekend and she even goes on her own if I am out of town now. Her going on her own even though it has only been maybe twice was surprising to me, but also shows me now that she is confident with her skills and safe handling procedures.
Her pistol of choice is an M&P .40
