    Introduced a new shooter!

    After six years, I was finally able to convince Mrs. 380ACP to, quite literally, give it a shot. Several hundred rounds later, Iíve gained a shooting partner but have lost an AR!

    She did great for never having handled a firearm before, particularly with the AR. In pistol form, even, which made it all the more impressive and fun for her to shoot. Like I said, I donít think Iím getting it back. Gives me an excuse to build another, maybe?

    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

    Congratulations! May your wife learn to enjoy shooting and develop shooting skills. It's good to have a life partner that shares our interests and beliefs on self-protection.
