First, Congratulations to ME as I finally got my wife to let me teach her to shoot. I tried everything from bribes to letting her go to a show and choose any handgun she wanted based on its ergonomics. First time was yesterday with my Buckmark. I know some folks preach you should start first time shooters off with a larger caliber but I call it a win. Of course , she is a natural. After a at home walkthrough, and getting the first couple of mags fired to get the hang of things she appears to be a very consistent shooter (even took her targets to work to show her coworkers). She even figured on her own she was limp wristing it at times (which we covered in Shooting 101) and took action to correct her grip. I'm so proud... The weight is a little off balance for her (she has really small hands) and I mentioned I could upgrade the barrel as she is looking for better groups. I know the Tactical Solutions barrels run a couple of hundred bucks, but at shorter distances of say 25 or 50 feet have people noticed a huge improvement? Now that she seems on board, I was going to get a rail and scope of some type and thought that might be enough.
