New Shooter Number 32

Jamie and the .357
I took my friend Jamie to the range today for her first time ever shooting handguns.

We sat  down for an hour in advance so I could answer her questions, give her a safety talk, memorize the Four Rules, and learn range procedures.

I took three guns for her to try.
  • Glock 17 9mm
  • S&W 539 9mm
  • Ruger SP-101 .357
She did well with all three. She was always on the paper at 25 feet. The gun she liked the feel of the best and the one she actually shot the best was the .357 revolver.

She actually got 5 bulls eyes with the SP-101 shooting .38spl. She really liked the simplicity of the revolver. The loading and the function included. 

She doesn't flinch much at all.

Another guy was there with his girlfriend and he did not teach her proper thumb placement and she got a wicked bloody slide bite.

My friend Joe went along as well. His first time shooting in like 12 years! He wants to go way more often now!

--I love it when a plan comes together...

It was crowded. Lots of women too.

More women shooters is good. More women shooters shooting full sized guns and not mouse guns is even better. It doesn't surprise me to hear that she liked an all steel Ruger.

More important, did you get laid afterward?
