    Took my wife to the range

    My wife joined me at the range today. She fired one round from my G23 and decided that wasn't really her speed, so she transitioned to my kids' Henry Mini-bolt. She's a tiny little thing, so the Mini-bolt is "right-sized" for her. She did a great job considering she hasn't shot in about 15 years. Her groupings were under 2" from a bench and and she kept them all in the black from a standing position.

    All in all, a good time. Hopefully we'll do this more often, and eventually, she'll pick up the handguns.

    The family that shoots together stays together.

    Way to go, Ranger!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Your a lucky man, I can't even get my family to go to the range at all any more. Maybe in the future if I luck out. Just being jealous.

    I will second that! We have 5 kids and when we go to the range, we take up 3 lanes. Me, the wife, and all 5 kids out there shooting and enjoying ourselves.

    It is quality family time to be sure.

    It's always nice to hear about another 'couple' shooting together instead of...each other...

    You're a lucky man...keep taking her to the range...baby steps!

    Stay armed...as a couple...stay safe!
