So you're saying women like shopping?! Lol yeah right that's the most insane thing I've ever heard

You may be right... She did have her eye on dun dun dun.... pink Ruger LCP so it's possible that she might like shooting more with that or a waste of money... It's worth a try for sure

She's right ya know. My wife was never anti gun..She was just anti MY guns because they where too big, or too small (she hates snubbys). She does not like semi autos for some unknown reason...Says she just don't like em. . Now if I was to sell or trade one then that was the only one she liked (AAHHHHH!!!) She has an old Mod 10 Smith that she keeps at her grandparents because they don't have a handgun over there all the way across the street. She did like my Mod 28 but being it's N frame hugeness she didn't shoot it as well as she liked.

After walking around a while at a gun show I spied a model 19 Smith. I deliberately picked up the one next to it because that would make her look at the 19 (yeah, she's like that). She picked it up and fell in love. Now she wants to shoot all the time and took the time to learn how to not only maintain that revo but every other gun I have in the house. She still doesn't like a lot of my guns but she will shoot more of them...Except the snubby.

Let a woman find something they can be comfortable with and they will be more apt to want to get more involved.

Haven't been able to shoot my 9mm for a month or two. The results showed it. But I did manage one good group. 10 rounds at 10 yards 2 handed left handed (I'm a rightie.)

can't say i am the best shooter but i am a good shooter. I went to my local range and shot this target at 100 yards using my Remington model 700 in 308 win. has a bsa scope. i used my own reloaded ammo 150 grain hornady fmj 41.5 grains of imr 4895. It was about 67 degrees and about 10-15 mph winds. Wanted to zero my rifle and only had to use three shots. Well i can't say its all natural talent but good fundamental i learned as a Marine. I was once a pig but then i became a hog! Semper Fi !

ANAKINANAYA, you're disgusting.

But seriously, you're disgusting.

Great shooting! Wish I could do that.

the winter has made me rusty..

top left .38 and 357 at 25yds.
top right 9mm at 25yds.
bot left was .22 at 25yds.
bot right was .40 at 25yds.

it seems im more comfortable with my .22 and 40 right now. but hopefully this will improve as i shoot all of these a lot more this summer.

See, that is why we can't ban hi capacity Mags. We need to give Willshoum a chance. We need to bring this to the attention of Congress. Save Willshoum will be our rally cry. Plus, I am sure that one of the 15/17 rounds should hit the target. Just ribbing you!

I shot my first deer with a .32 Special Model 94 when I was too young to know that after everyone has blazed away at several running deer (who all made it to safety in a large section of bush) there'd be no use reloading. One very large buck waited for the commotion to die down until he made his own run for safety. He didn't make it. I hadn't read the rule book. I had reloaded and I also didn't know that a .32 won't reach that far. His heavy 10 pt. rack is in my garage to this day.

ps: I'm older now and would say it's better to stay within 200 yds. with a Model 94.
