I can't even call a male who hits a woman or a child a "man". He's not worthy of the name.
So...she showed up yesterday afternoon with her Glock, pair of spares, and a Ruger 22/45 she picked up for inexpensive practice. She told me she shoots once a week and shoots 100 rounds through her Ruger, and another 50-100 rounds through the Glock depending on her budget. She told me she carries her Glock every day, everywhere she goes...not in her purse...but ON HER BODY (lesson here for the ladies). She even added +2 floorplates to all three of her magazines, saying it was cheaper to add capacity to those than to buy another Glock.
She shot very well. She HAS been practicing, which does me proud because a LOT of students don't practice what they've learned. She clearly has practiced and it showed. She was doing fast doubles at 7 yards to POA less than an inch apart in about 1.5 seconds...FROM CONCEALMENT. Not blazing speed...but damned sure fast. I set a few of her mags up with snap caps in the line-up and she went to IMMEDIATE clearance drills...really running the gun. No hesitation, no fumbled reloads, just TAP RACK BANG on automatic.
It was Thursday, my steel shooting night, so my wife and I invited her along to shoot the match. My wife offered her the loan of a Glock 19....but she turned it down, preferring to shoot with her G26, and she did AWESOME! She shot in NOVICE, but could have easily competed in C Class. I think she has the competition bug.
I am not worried about her gun skills....she has the ability and the attitude, and the tools to defend herself now. She is one girl who WON'T be a victim again. She told me her new boyfriend is a "nice guy"...he is a GEEK SQUAD type, not a pretty boy or thug...so we can pretty well figure she won't go for a "person of questionable character" again.
She also told me she bought a used Remmy 870 in 20 gauge and wants me to teach her shotgunning too. I think I may have created a monster...LOL.
She tried to pay me for my time yesterday...I told her..."Gimme a buck."
BY THE WAY....She also has a bumper sticker on her Honda Civic that reads: OBAMA SUCKS!
I always said a conservative is a liberal who got robbed yesterday.
