    Lost my old Carbine

    I was hoping to teach my wife how to shoot a rifle as she is very comfortable with pistols and a Stoeger Coach Gun. So we went out back today for her first lession. Well, now my old 1943 Saginaw Carbine has a new best friend and owner. Below is her first target shot at 30 yards using a red dot from a standing position. I thought she really did well shooting a rifle for the first time.

    Nice, and, well, sorry for your loss. :)

    I'm a big fan of the .30 Carbine - though I think there are a number of "modern" equivalents that are just as effective, there is something in the looks of the M1 that speaks to me like few other firearms. Looks like an excuse for you to pick up another one!
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    My wife has an old Winchester M1 carbine. No way anyone is going to talk her out of it. It started out as mine too. Oh well. Congrats on getting her out shooting.

    YUP.......I lost a Winchester the same way.

    Though it does reassure me knowing my old buddy sits next to her side of the bed with a pair of jungle clipped 30 rounders full of hollow points while I'm over here.

    Looks like you get to go to the Gun Store, to replace your weapon ?

    You didn't actually loose anything. You gained something! It's all in your perspective. LOL!

    Think of it as a good excuse to buy another gun ;)

    I feel sorry for anyone who breaks into your house when she's home with the rifle.

    Cool, that she is shooting and likes it. Good man to give up your rifle to her.

    My Ex, was ex-Army and didn't like guns, but .... was a dead on shot with about anything. I actually saw, and verified, her putting 10 shots with a handgun at 25 yrds into the same hole. We dug out , all 10 bullets to be sure. I hated to go shooting with her. Her favorite thing, was throwing hand grenades in the Army... she loved it.
