My wife has been shooting handguns, and maybe guns longer than I have. First time we shot together was 1987. She was 90lb and shooting a 6" Taurus 66 with wad-cutters, she was out shooting a buddy of mine, who made the comment that she only shot so well due to the light HBWC loads. He was shooting a hot 158 WHP/.38+P. She didn't say a word. She just laid the gun down after her set and went to the cab of my truck. I knew what was about to go down. She quietly got a speedo deer of 158gr .357mag. and rejoined us. Her next set had 6 loud and flaming "BOOMS"!! 5 in the (x) one in the head. She never said a word. I'm still laughing! I laugh again still when we go to gun stores and people, are well, people who don't know what they think they know. Love this lady.

If a lady is shooting a gun like that and shooting it that well, then chances are it ain't her first time holding a pistol. That is definitely not the time to go all alpha male. All that leads to is embarrassment.

Knew a young lady while I was in college that was like that except her gun of choice was a 4" Python. She'd catch the mall ninja wannabes at the range and start running double tap drills with it to 'show them how to do them right'.

Know a woman like that.
She literally kicked her step sons 'carcass' into intensive care when he came home one night high on drugs. Police called it 'self defense'. No charges filed. He later went to live with 'mommy dearest'.
She was also half owner of a gun shop where I used to live. Considered .444 Marlin rifles 'adequate'.
I have stayed on her good side since I first met her. Her bad side scares the stuffing out of me.

Maybe it's because I hung around tomboys so much growing up, but I've never understood the misapprehension that all women are gun-shy or can't handle the recoil of anything over a standard pressure .38 Special.

It would be amusing how often I've seen either gunshop owners or husbands trying to convince women that they ought to purchase a .22LR/WMR revolver for self-defense if it weren't so frustrating that they're essentially gimping their abilities to defend themselves.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the use of .22LR/WMR revolvers for self-defense, (in fact I would like to one day purchase a NAA Sidewinder in .22WMR for deep concealment/backup) but rather that certain men underestimate a woman's capability to handle anything more powerful. Even more infuriating is my suspicion that certain men intentionally push weaker weapons on their wifes out of personal insecurity. I know that sounds ridiculous, but you'd be surprised at just how easily certain men are emasculated these days.

My wife was kinda like that when we finally talked her into going to the range with me and our son. She picked up my PT1911 and decided to blow the 10 ring out of the target at 10 yards, dropped the empty mag and told me that the push of the recoil hurts her shoulder or she'd shoot more. Our son's jaw dropped when he saw her shoot like that.
Finding a good woman who can shoot like no one's business is rare to find, and ever rarer to be able to hold on to. good job not pissing her off.

Now that I can post pictures again I might have to post a couple of the Wife's new XD Mod2 45acp with the targets she shot last weekend.

I keep telling her she gets Happy finger when she has a gun in her hand.

Oh heck, I was hoping to see a pictue of a deer in a speedo! :) Auto correct drives me crazy, too...especially on my new Kindle where I haven't been able to figure out how to turn it off! :(

All in all - it does my heart good to see you men speak so highly of your women folk! God bless you!

I had a hinky feeling about my sister's first husband, so, shortly after the wedding, we had us a 'family range trip'. Watching Daddy centerpunch targets with a J-frame, my sister shoot clothespins off the target stands at 25 yards with a M1 Carbine- something he couldn't do with a scoped .22 rifle- along with my own modest efforts- seemed to have made quite an impression on him.

It was quite amusing to see the realization dawning on him that he was, by far, the worst shooter out there and that 'out of range' had a whole new and very different meaning in our family than it did in his. It might have been Daddy shooting clay pigeons at 200 yards from the standing position (he was a marksmanship instructor in the Army and, to be fair, he was using the sling), my sister literally taking a Hi Power out of his hand and a full mag out of his pocket to shoot a group half the size of his own at 12 yards or my shooting clays at the 100 yard berm with a 1911.:D

My wife was like that when we first met. After we were married we made it a point to go shooting at least once a month, usually two or three times. As our kids got older they went too. Unfortunately, Arthur Itus introduced himself to her and she got to the point where an afternoon of Saturday shooting became a three day painful recovery. She'll still go out with me sometimes just to put a few rounds through her 38, but we don't go like we used to. Enjoy your time together. It's hell gettin old.

A few years after my daughter got married, her Husband bought a Desert Eagle pistol in 45AE. She went to the range with him, and he asked her if she wanted to shot the new pistol. Be careful he said, "...this is not like the little .22 pistols you used to shoot with your Dad..." . Before could stop her, she picked up the big pistol, and emptied the magazine into a 6' bull. Dumbfounded, he asked "where did you learn to shoot like that?" "From my Dad, When we were not shooting the 'little 22 pistols", I shot my .44 Magnum, and he let me shoot his .454 Casull. I think the new gun kicks just a little more than my .44 Magnum Super Blackhawk, but less than his Casull." His only comment "Oh".
