Most men who have questionable morals and were likely to be shot by a spouse would not voluntarily choose to teach their spouse a martial art.

The first picture is her best of 3 targets. She hit 8 times out of about 12 rounds.

The second pic is my 20 rounds, 19 good hits, and one on the top right edge. The one on the edge made me make an adjustment to my sights.

I did not have to "Teach" MzGrn much with Handgun or Rifle Shooting......



The shooting distance was 20 foot to the target.

Walther PPQ-M2. Very smooth slide, almost as good as the PPQ-22, which is like "butta," also the Ruger LC380(LC 9 sized frame and slide but 380 chambering and reduced slide resistance), and SR-22.....

+10 on the UpLula,..plus just about any loader helps! The one that came with my SR9 is just a piece of formed metal with a semi loop on it to push the rounds in. I keep most of the mags for all loaded anyway,..except for the Buckmark mags.

Tek, I am not at all worried about my wife shooting me. I am more worried about her NOT shooting an aggressor.

not sure how you would have any insight into this, as i think you have said before you have never been married.

only a man of ill morals has cause to be worried about such things.

i am quite glad my wife knows how to shoot and as i don't do things that wouldgive her cause to want to shoot me, i don't worry about such silly things.

My sister came in from Houston a few weeks ago and wanted to learn how to shoot. I agreed, but damn, it was like Mrs Barney Fife on amphetamines. She's a little skinny gal, nervous as a cat in a roomful of rockin chairs. I gave her the ultra beginner-beginner lesson with a Ruger 10-22 and she did--okay--but I was afraid she was gonna jump out of her shoes.

What was that old Don Knott's movie...The Shakiest Gun in the West? Well, she's got him beat. I would advise all gun stores in east-central Texas to NOT sell any firearm to my sister. Some people should not own guns.
