My 26 year old daughter and her boyfriend took a "First Steps" handgun safety class yesterday. They're both experienced shooters so it was mostly review. They both plan to get their permits. I'm thrilled.
She and I hope that her getting permitted will spur my wife into getting hers, since she's always been a "me too" type of person. There's a new Glock 19 in it for her if and when she does. She took her handgun safety class with me so all she has to do is register, pay the fee and wait.
