I guess you might as well pony up for a supporting membership now.

You two love birds want to try out some different firearms find your way down to Pompano Beach and I'd be glad share some hand gun/long gun experiences with you. Anything from .22lr up to 458SOCOM.



Thats a small sample of what you can try.

I'm always up for some range time.

Feel free to PM me if you like.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I'm actually quite surprised at how "fatiguing" shooting 50 rounds was. My strong hand feels like I did a hard session on a heavy bag and my forearm is a bit taxed. I'm obviously using a bunch of small muscles in a way that I've never used them before.
A new shooter, Great! Just wait till you shoot a 1911,

Heck, I'll take you the the range too.
Some of the best shooting sessions I've had are with forum members.

Hope you guys have long memories. I'm likely to take you up on this at some point.

I am a new shooter, too. The first time at the range was an incredible adrenaline rush I will never forget. An hour or two of shooting leaves me pretty tired, too. Like you, I was surprised at how tired my arms were after shooting.

I'm already signed up for another 3.5 hr Basic Hand Gun course at Shoot Straight - West Palm Beach. I had already signed my wife and I up, but I couldn't wait (it's not until 6/1), so I "cheated" on her and went on my own today.

Believe it or not, it's actually our Anniversary gift to each other. We're going to spend our 6th anniversary slinging lead! Yehaw!
I live in Illinois so I can't conceal carry, but like you, I'm not sure when I'd be ready to do that. For me, it's not so much adept at using the gun, it's the mental mindset and ability to make a quick judgment, etc.

I wish you and your wife many years of happiness together and a lot of fun days at the range.

Let me also add if you ever can fit it in to your schedule, please do take up the offers of the other forum members to go shooting with them. I've been a member here less than a year but I have met and gone shooting with several members here. Not only was it a great time, but I was treated like royalty and I can't tell you how much I've learned while shooting with other members here. I asked hundreds of questions and I've gotten to shoot many, MANY different guns by meeting with others from here. Everyone here is very intent on sharing their knowledge. I guarantee you if you can meet with any of those members who offered to go shooting with you, you will have a wonderful time, learn a lot, have a new friend and you'll never forget the experience.

I almost forgot to mention that is some excellent shooting for the first time at the range. I am very impressed!!
