I had the opportunity to introduce a lady to handguns. We talked safety for a while, with demonstrations and some hands-on. She shot my K22 , but didn’t try any of the .38 Spec. One step at a time! She liked the Airweights because they were easier to handle. I explained the difficulty in shooting them. We’ll work up to that. I got a little time after she left . A picture of the table, and a target I shot DAO with the Mod 37.

Sounds like fun! Good on you that you didn't jam an airwieght in her hand and make her hate shooting!!

Thanks! She had a fellow years ago give her a .44 Mag. Not one of her fondest memories. We’ll work with .22 LR for a while. She told my wife she had fun. That and the safety information were today’s goal. She’s thinking of purchasing a house gun, not a carry gun at this point. We talked for a while about about mental conditioning as well as learning and improving Her skills. This will be an interesting journey. Hank

Great range report. Always good to educate and familiarise people to the fundamentals of gun safety. Sounds like fun was had by all.

Thanks, Curt. I have been “ teaching” people, most female, for a couple of decades. Often the mothers of my sons’ friends. Now , older people who have begun to realize how vulnerable they are in a house/apartment by themselves. I try to introduce them to shooting as a pleasure and ease into other thoughts they may have. I think mental preparation is as important as the development of muscle memory. And I don’t want people to have unrealistic expectations. Hank
