OK OK I am a new shooter and have my permit but have not purchased yet. I went to the range today and tried the Ruger LCR Double Action Revolver. I am a small female (26 years old 5'2' and about 110lbs). Is it just first time jitters because I felt like this thing snapped back and almost through my arms above my head! Maybe I am just not use to it yet and the bigger guns have sent me flying so this one wasn't as bad but any tips for shooting if it is just me? I want to have better control over the gun and the guys at the shooting range just laugh and say I am out of place or make sexist comments. One mans tutorial was to spread my legs while I stand which I don't understand because if I am going to be mugged most likely I wont get into a position like that before pulling my gun. Any thoughts is it the gun or me and if it is me any tips? Any thoughts on ammo?
