    Taking newbies to the range tomorrow night

    Including the wife.

    Have been trying to get her to go for sometime and she has finally agreed. Will let her shoot the Browning Buckmark so she is comfortable. Hoping she enjoys herself.

    My Wife and I did that last summer with a couple from church. They enjoyed it and want to go again. This could be the start of something grand.

    Make sure you go over all the features of the firearms, the safety issues and all that before sending hot lead downrange. The more they know about safely handling a firearm the better.

    Congrats to you and you significant other, quite the benchmark; I'm still working on mine....

    Ear and eye protection for everybody......there's nothing to turn a newbie off as quickly than a blast to the eardrums...unless it's a fleck of steal in the face.

    As much as I like my gf all sexied up shooting a gun, I would reccomend any female shooters steer clear of low cut shirts and flip flops. I can't imagine a hot case going down a girls shirt would be pleasant. Haha. I'm sure you are aware though, but I had to talk my girl out of wearing a low cut shirt to the range.
