    I just got home from a trip to the desert after church with family and friends to shoot. We put about 75 rounds through the AR, maybe 300 .40, a bunch of .22, .38, 12-ga. It was a fantastic afternoon to be sure!

    I personally only put about 30 rounds through it, but they were awesome. It shot nice and straight and had no issues whatsoever. My wife shot it, my 12 year old daughter shot it, and my 9 year old son shot it!! They all had a blast with it too.

    When I got home I cleaned it; the barrel was kinda nasty. I also just noticed that there is a crack on the charging handle; I'm going to look it up but I can't imagine that piece is expensive.

She is a homeschooling pastor's wife who sings on the praise team at church and helps women with natural childbirth...yeah that might be the definition of super-conservative.

    And this lady who would have screamed in the presence of any firearm whatsoever can out-shoot most cops I know. She is deadly accurate! (not that she could out-shoot a trained pro in a deadly force scenario...she is just a better shot than most) Not to mention, she can handle just about any firearm known to man.

    Anyway, it's a cool AR that I got a smokin' deal on. And I have a great wife who, after doing some research on the platform and thinking about how we manage our money was fine with me having it.
    Ok, how do I get my wife to be like yours?

    Um...not to get preachy, but it had more to do with prayer than anything else. I pray with her and for her every day. I never pushed her to be a gun freak, just allowed Him to change attitudes from the inside out. She did the same with me, and I think we are the better for it.
