    The first time I took my wife shooting (while we were dating) she put the first 7 rounds from my Combat Commander inside a 3.5 inch circle at 7 yds. It was then I knew that it was love.

    My mother surprised me too. All the while I was growing up Mom showed little interest in firearms of any kind. She wasn't against them, just indifferent. After she and my Dad divorced she moved from California back to North Carolina. I got stationed in Florida and drove up to visit. I was awoken one morning to gunshots outside. Mom had a .22 pistol and was picking off rabbits in the vegetable garden. One shot each. We had a rabbit dinner that night.

    "Don't fuss with your contractor" was good advice from Schmidt (Homer Smith) in Poitier's classic Lilies Of The Field film. Guess we'd best add to that: "Don't fuss with momma when she's on the 9mm." Great shooting. (Please) tell her I said that ...

    I am too smart to try to teach my wife to shoot. Really, she shot only a few times with me before we took the NRA Basic Pistol Course with James Hester in Northport, AL. Her expertise is the product of her abilities and work and the training provided by James.

    Doc, you are lucky, and respectful. I started my wife with air pistols in silhouette; she holds 3 NRA national womens records. Then she tried combat shooting. All of the guys there are VERY nice to her. Lets not let our wives get together and get mad' we wouldn't stand a chance!

    My wife carries a Sig 239 in .40S&W.

    As for teaching females to shoot, I have found them all, without exception, easier to teach then men. I think part of it is women have not developed bad habits that men have. For instance, most men who have not shot very much tend to anticipate recoil & flinch or jerk the trigger. Women on the other hand, don't seem to have this issue (or at least it is less pronounced).

    Another thing that women don't have a problem with is EGO. Most men have the attitude that they are the masters of everything & don't need or take advice as well as women.

    I've taught as many women as men & by far would rather deal with women since they are easier to teach. Women also tend to be more natural shooters, the techniques seem to stick with them better since a lot of men are more worried about being 'cool'.

    My wife is good with a pistol, my mother (all 5'1" of her) is great with a shotgun & my daughter is great with an AR (she's an Army MP).

    Agreed! On our courses I have had every time I expect, at least one macho/arrogant guy - the ladies are fine and eager to learn - and shoot well!

    I started my wife with the Ruger MkII. She struggled for a bit...but by the time we left the range, she was passable. Now she's good with the .22 and the Taurus 85 (.38Spl snub), of all things! When she gets her chosen caliber (9mm), and a little trigger time, she'll be even more capable.

    One of my friends taught his wife to shoot. She even got into IPSC for a while. Funny thing is...as she gets frustrated or angry...her groups tighten up! She's good to start with.

    George, send a "Ma'am, Yes, Ma'am" to your wife from me.

    There's one less female that will take some baboon's guff!

    Oh...my wife like the rubber grips (Hogue's), too.
