My wife had hunted her whole life before I met her but her family NEVER had handguns around. Her uncles and Dad and borther had her very recoil fearful. She hunted with a .222 Remington because they told her anything else would wreck her. She's 5'10" and could easily handle a bigger round. I got her to shooting handguns. After training and practice I got her to get her CCP and start carrying a J-frame or a Glock 26. I tried to get her to shoot .45s and other ones. A friend got her to shoot his 1911 and now there isnt anything she wont shoot. We were unwinding .44 mags during a range session with friends the other day and now she wants her own 1911.
Its great having her understand and enjoy my hobbies but I think I have created a monster...
The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. -Proverbs 28:1
