    Wifester shot her first IDPA match today

    And I couldn't be more proud. She had a lot of fun, and can't wait for the next match.

    She even had a minor malfunction, and performed the tap-rack-reengage smoothly and immediately.

    Just had to brag :)

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Good for her. I wish my wife was that cool. I would like to shoot comps but
    dont get to practice like I wish I could. I wish I was less busy. Hope she continues in the shooting sports.
    Good Luck.

    Outstanding! We had 1 wife shoot her first match today. This was no wussified match, either. We had a stab target (scored) with an actuall skeletal structure and 1.5" of penetration required. If you hit the sternum or a rib, ya better be strong...she nailed it! We had another stage where a 100# heavy bag had to be hit hard enough to swing out and knock over a popper, THEN you had to get out of the way to engage other targets. She did it like Bruce Lee.

    Congratulations to the missus, and to you Sir!

    Congrats on getting the wife into that experience...an armed couple is a couple that stays together (they better...).

    No kidding, I got my butt kicked.


    Matt,

    That's great news! Hopefully when the little guy gets a little bigger we'll get Lima out to our matches.
