Mrs. Ghost Tracker went for her CCL on Saturday. I tagged along for moral/technical support (and because her instructor is a longtime ol' shooting buddy of mine). She was as nervous as a longtailed cat in a room full of rockin' chairs. She even insisted that she put in a last little-bit of trigger time practicing late Friday afternoon, burning a quick box of WWB 9mm here at the house by dark. We were on-site 30 minutes early Saturday morning (not a habit of hers) and I quietly sat while she soaked-in the classroom session and aced the Written test by lunch. Then the fun part - off to the range! It wasn't a large class (9) and the instructor was running two qualifiers at a time. She held in the shadows until the first 8 were finished, allowing her to lastly shoot solo. All the other attendees had shot .22LR autoloaders & revolvers out of consideration of, I suppose, cost or recoil. At 7 yards they had managed to keep most shots in the black of a full B-24 target. Mrs. Ghost Tracker then stepped to the line with her GLOCK G19, followed the Range instruction like a IPDA Master, manipulated her pistol like Gaston's little sister, and proceeded to punch 21 X's dead-center mass with a group no bigger than a Slow-Pitch Softball!! I was/am soooo happy for her. She just beamed, had the instructor sign the target & brought it home for posterity. Please excuse my crowing...but she sure did her coach & life/SD/HD partner proud. Teach 'em to shoot...and they'll outshoot ya'! That's MY girl!

What more could a man ask for? A wife that's a great cook. Great job on her shooting and getting her permit.
I'm happy for you......... My wife also has her permit...

Congrats. My wife has her CWP, but is not carrying yet. I need to get her more training, mentally prepared, and convinced that she can and would be able to use it in a time of need.
Nice Mrs. Ghost Tracker! Congrats!

Very nice! Much applause to her for her accomplishment. My wife can outshoot me as well...though I still need to get her to go get her CCW.

I'd say a big celebration is in store.

Nice to have another holder. Remember, the gentleman should provide covering fire while the lady is reloading.
