    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Y'all are really costing me money here. Read this thread last week, pondered over the weekend, and went over to the local gun shop (my reverse ATM) at lunch. Came back to the office with a NIB Ruger MKIII 22/45 SS bull barrel. Grip is slimmer than my Kimber, but angles feel good, and pistol, IIRC, is within 3 oz. or so of being the same. Really looking forward to having some real range time without putting big bucks downrange. Other than the 375 clams the Ruger cost to walk out the door with.

    Bob,

    You are the man.

    Like with most other things in life, a person new to shooting never forgets their first.
    You've very likely made an excellent and lasting impression.

    Thank you from a fellow 'ambassador'! :)

    I like teaching people to shoot. It's a very rewarding experience for both the student and the teacher.

    Another guy at work has expressed interest also... I may be on a roll.

    Great job getting her started. Don't forget to suggest she check out this forum, corneredcat, and womenandguns.

    I would say, "Yes, if it's a revolver."

    You can load some of the chambers but not others, and practice making sure you don't flinch when you pull the trigger. You will EASILY see if you do it when you fire on an empty chamber after a live one! (I've used this as a technique.)

    Peacefuljeffrey,
    I have used the same revolver technique only I use spent cases in the cylinder just to avoid "pinging" the rear of the cylinder with the firing pin...

    It is good to have a .22 pistol to teach someone to shoot. There is another good use of a .22 pistol. After shooting a few magazines of the big stuff it is good to relax and fire a few magazines of .22. My Sig 210 came with a .22 long rifle kit: So this makes it easy.

    It is also good to have a .22 rifle along when firing heavy recoiling rifles. Fire a few rounds of high power and then fire a couple magazines of rounds through the .22. The .22 helps a person to get over the high power flinches.

    With .22 ammo so cheap, you absolutely need a .22 pistol!
