Conversion of wife complete.
When I married my wife, she was one of those 'No guns in the house' people.
Well, got past that and got my first gun.
As it began to sink in that a hunk of metal holds no malice and is no more dangerous than a cheese sandwich, moved to the next step, which was her buying me a 686 for Christmas.
A few range trips and she is getting hooked.
Birthday and following Christmas brought more goodies.
Now, the conversion is complete. She has just walked out the door to do her CHL class.
The big trick is not to 'ram it down their throat'. That just makes them more resistant to change. If you approach it more obliquely, curiosity will do 95 percent of the job for you.
