My wife of 12 years doesn't care for guns. She has been to the range a few times, but one day she was showing off her Charter Arms Off Duty to some friends and fired a round thru the front door, the storm door, the overhang at the front of the front porch and on out to who-knows-where. The ears of all in the house were ringing for an hour. Now she doesn't like guns any more.
My other wife found out early on that I was a gun "fanatic", and took an interest in it. I took her to a gun store to get something for herself. The owner of the store started off by showing her a little bitty Raven .22 for $50. She said to him, "Hell no, if I shoot somebody with that I might piss him off." She ended up buying a Dan Wesson model 744VH, a stainless steel .44 magnum with interchangeable barrels of 4", 6", 8", and 10" for $1150. She loved taking it to an indoor range with the 4" barrel, and when a clown in a lane next to her thought he was going to scare her by firing his .357, she'd wait for him to peep around the lane divider to see if she was scared, then cut loose a volley of hefty .44 mag rounds and watch him jump outta his shoes. Oh, btw, she was 5'4" and weighed about 120 lbs.

Sounds like her dislike of guns could have been avoided if she had been shown proper safety and handling of a gun. I don't know what the heck she was doing with a gun that she didn't check to see if it were empty before 'showing it off' and pulling the damned trigger on it!! She darned well could have killed someone.

She was. But I have learned thru the years that since she is a Korean, she just inherently knows everything, and doesn't regard input from a low-life subhuman American to be worth listening to.

I hope that's not how you feel about your marriage.

I teach at a local range, and most of my beginner's classes consist of mostly women. I love it! Makes me proud...is that weird?

My experience w/ females at the range - HORRIBLE!!

I USED to go to a .gov ran range about 40 min. from my house until the following.

I unload my gear and start setting up when I notice an attractive female shooting a handgun a few lanes over. She's there w/ a couple other women ranging from what I would guess to be early to mid twenties. Refreshing to say the least at this range which is usually populated by old men.

I start to shoot but can hear the girl going on and on (magical electronic ear pro). I glance down to where they are at and she's giving "advice" to the other shooters. A few minutes pass and in my peripheral line of site I see movement. I of course stop and look. This girl is about 10 yards past the line at a 25 yard range. "Are you kidding me!" Oh it gets better, much better.

Later on a cease fire is called so targets can be change. I usually put up 2 targets so it takes me a little longer. BANG BANG BANG! I look up and it's that girl. I have been shot at enough that it doesn't really startle me but it does still piss me off. I yelled HEY a couple times w/ my arms out as to say WTF. One of the other girls looked at me and said, "what" in this clueless no brain cell sort of fashion. She then tapped the shooter on the shoulder and let her know the situation. The girl that was shooting almost mimicked the first to the T w/ her response. Clueless.

I finished putting up my target and returned to shooting.

Where the hell was the paid .gov park ranger and why the hell did nobody say anything to this girl. The range was at max capacity so it wasn't like it was just us.

It's probably more of an issue of her and her friends than the fact that they were female but that is my females at the range story.
