    family time

    yesterday i took my fiancee to the gun range and for the first time she shoots handgun, she kill it. she started with sr22, 1911-22, 1911-9 and end with 1911-45. the targets are 5-7 yards and she put all the ammo in them. she was hesitate to go at first but her step dad encourage her and she seem loving it. for a first timer shooting the 9 and 45, she shoot better than the 22 :) cant wait to go back to the range again for more bonding, maybe she will let me buy more guns :)

    She's going to be high maintenance. Teach her to reload.

    she shoots well and on the target (x) with p938, my daily carry. i actually bought her naa22 but she laugh at it and said naaaaa, so i m planning to find her a nice p938. she got good taste, not high maintenance :) the 45 she shoots are sig c3, sig nightmare carry and she said it too big. the 9 are springfield loaded, xdm and p938. she went wild on the xdm cos it hold 19 rounds lol.......

    Better than my wife. Her first time at the range, she picked up my 1911, drilled the x out and said "That was boring - what's the big deal?"



    She hasn't shot since then.

    First of all, nothing beats a good day at the range with family and friends. In fact, even a bad day at the range is better than a good day at work.

    I do have a question...why would you have to ask your fiancee if you can buy more guns?
    I see a potential problem in your future...I'm just sayin'...

    Buy now and avoid the negotiation process after you tie the knot.

    yes, on bad day i went to the range a lot, it just 5 minutes from my work. i always went there by myself.

    well, she is going to be my sugarmama :) but now i am her sugardaddy. we about 16 years apart and she still in school and will be grad and be a pharmacist.

    lol... i do buy/deal at the moment on some of the firearms at the moment :)

    Show her IPSC and IDPA. Just be prepared to get beaten to a pulp, in terms of accuracy. If she's nailing it the first go, she's likely going to be a natural. Of course, the 1911 and sequence of introduction you did certainly seem to have helped. Good on ya, for that.

    Nice to have something you both can excel at, something you both can do together.

    Glad you introduced her to shooting and glad she liked it. The first time I took my wife I came home with my tail tucked because she was more accurate than I was.

    She's just gonna love heading to an outdoor venue, where you can shoot watermelons, jugs of water, balloons, thermite and all the rest.

    Be prepared to get out-shot, sometime soon, once she nails the basics.

    Glad to see another newbie finding the joys of becoming competent with weapons. Always a good thing.
