    My Wife Left Me...

    To go to her CCW class this morning.

    She took a Basic Handgun Class last month and off to the class with her G26, ammo and all the stuff.

    I hope she has fun.

    Well...thats one way to get everyone to look...

    Tell us how she likes it when she gets back.

    You're a lucky guy.

    I wish my wife would leave me...to attend a basic SD gun course.
    The course would have to include some jewelry making...

    Her Basic class was just for women and she was the best shooter in the whole class.

    The last thing the instructor asked the class to do was to shoot at the NRA logo on the large silhouette target and she got within 1/2" of the logo - she even brought the target home.

    My advice to her this morning was to shoot as much as possible, ask to shoot as many other peoples' guns as possible, and to shoot some of the HST 147gr in her gun to make it cycles ok.

    Well, we have as matching guns as we can - G23 for me and a G26 for her.

    I showed her a few "women's" gun like the pink snubby and such and she said no way. lol

    Proud husbands

    My wife went to the "Women of the NRA Pistol Shooting Clinic" introductory course in September. She and another lady were the best shooters. A lot of the women had a hard time hitting the paper even with .22s. Two of them couldn't pull the trigger and asked for another gun (she thinks it was a Taurus .22 revolver).

    My wife won all the prizes which amount to more than twice the fee for the course ($30) and spent 2 hours shooting, learning and interacting with people.
    she was initially reluctant to go, but at the end end she said it was great and useful experience She would recommend it to everybody!

    Your wife left you? Does she have a sister? J/K

    I think the DC members that shoot should have our significant others post their first time positives experiences with training,range or CCW. So the non-shooters can have a better understand from were we are coming from.

    After all the "wife/fiance hates guns" posts lately, I was worried. Congrats, though!
