I took my daughter Leah to her CCW course today. She drew a crowd. Just drilled the EYES out of the target. I'm SO proud!
No macho BS to get in the way? I've taught both men and women over the years, and I get much better results and much more attention to range safety from the women.Taught her good. My fiance is the same age and after only a few times out shooting she got her CHL with similar results.
Don't know why but most of the women I have taken out shooting do really damn good. What's up with that?
Nearly the same thing happened with me and my wife. We were at a friends house and he brought out a 44 Magnum with a scope. I shot it and commented that the kick was actually not as much as I thought it would be. I asked Karen if she wanted to try it and she eagerly said yes. Like you, her first shot with it could not have been a more perfect bullseye.Anyway, I shot the .357 and she watched as I emptied the chamber. Then I handed it to her. She knew how to load already and keep the gun pointed down range. When she was ready, I watched her body change. She positioned herself, adjusted her stance and focused intently. Her grip was good and first time out, first shot ever, was a perfect bullseye. I am just as proud 15 years later now as I was then.
South of Springfield. But that dealer / pawn shop is about 45 miles from me. All I have to do now is convince my better half....and buy another turret for the press.....and buy the dies....and the holster.....sigh...Anywhere near Springfield? There are a couple there including a dealer that says they have them. Check it out here:
