    Have to brag on the wife a little.

    Well, after OCing all the time for a long time now the wife finally got over her shyness "of being on record" and took her CCDW class today.
    Being a perfectionist shes spent the last two weeks shooting her SR9 every evening running thru a total of about 600 rounds of ammo.

    I told her she really didnt need to push it that hard as the qualification shoot isnt that hard. But in typical Mr.s Ghost fashion it was " It may not be but if im going to do it then im doing it the best I can do"

    So she waltzs up and scores 100 % on her qualification 20 rounds 20 kill hits COM, the only thing slowing her down was that they limited her in rounds in her mag to match the six shooter person shooting next to her as they shot two people at a time. So she could load six rattle them off wait till the other person was done then load six more.
    Aces the written test and now is waiting to get the flash pack in the mail to go get her licence in about about 60 days.

    I know the instructors so I got the usual ribbing about " better not make that one mad buddy". And after going thru everyone else in the class showing them how to tear down clean etc their weapons, look at her grin and state " Theres no use to go into that with you is there? You can probably strip that pistol faster than either of us can if we know your husband back there at all."

    She grins slightly and nods yes, so they skipped that part with her.


    So now we are waiting and the only questions now are stick with the SR9 and probably Nate squared holster for it, or get her a SR9c since she will be IWB mostly in a short time. She will figure that out while we wait as a friend has the SR9c she can borrow shoot and she which she likes best.


    I know this is nothing really new to anyone but just sort of had to brag on the old gal a little.

    So now as I said shes waiting on her license.

    "Old gal" - ? Be ready to pay the price for that one!

    I like your wife's attitude, as it matches my own. When there's a test, I darn well want to be ready for it.

    Congrats to Mrs. Ghost, and I hope the credentials show up sooner rather than later.

    Congratulations to Mrs. Ghost for proving once again that "girls shoot better".

    Hope the license gets there quickly. Waiting is frustrating.

    Its a little easier here since she can continue to OC all the time till it does. Its legal here and nobody pays any attention to it so its not like shes naked in a thorn patch waiting for it. But she still is looking forward to it now that she made the jump.

    The downside: "they" know she's there, now.

    The upside: "they" won't come anywhere near the place, seeing it's so far from anywhere.

    Gotta love the country.

    Congratulations to the "old" girl. Wouldn't have thought she'd do any less ... aced the practical, aced the written, aced the field stripping, impressed the heck out of the instructors. Daniella Boone, right there.

    Congrats to the wife, nothing beats an armed couple, and it sounds like you be a great 'backup' for her in a Wally World parking lot...if the need should arise.
