Stages of a new convert
One of the "young" ladies I have dated/taken shooting went through the following stages. (Time spans vary)
1. You own a gun? Why?
2. Do you carry a gun? Why?
3. Sure, I'll go shooting with you.
4. That was fun, but I don't think I would be interested in doing it again.
5. My dad said I can take his gun to the range and shoot it. Take me. Oh and by the way, bring your guns, too.
6. I am taking a cross country motorcycle trip, but I don't need a gun.
7. I should have brought a gun with me on that cross country trip.
8. (Today) I just got back from the gun show. I want your opinion on what gun I should buy.
9. Take me back to the gun show and help me buy a Glock 26. After that I am taking my CHL class and getting a CHL. Then I am taking all the shooting classes. I am counting on you to take me back to the range and help me practice.
10. Damn right. If someone comes at me and it is me or him, he is toast.
Took about 6 months.
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

That was a pretty fast progression in only 6 months. Took my wife about a year, although she sped up after I showed her the story of Dr. Petit's tragedy in nearby Chesire.

Hide the ring in a box of her ammo and hand it to her at the range, she's a keeper!!

Her gun is a 6" nickle .357 Taurus. (Doesn't have a model # that I know of)

My wife still in stage 2, and I think she'll be there for a looooong time.

Took 32 years to get my wife to step nine...she's frozen there.
I'd say that you're in great shape.
