I want to talk about my wife a bit here. As you all know she's very suppotative of my shooting and gun buying. She's also handicapped, and walks with either a cane or a walker. She still enjoys going to the range and shooting either her Ruger MK II, or her 65-5 Ladysmith. She just sits on her "high performance" walker and blasts away. Last week she offered her Glock 19 as trade bait for a 4", Model 29-2. Yesterday at the range after watching me shoot a cylinder of 44 Magnum ammo (Federal premium 240 gr JHP), she said "I wanna try it." I was a bit concerned really. She is somewhat recoil sensitive since loosing some of her mobility, and isn't as strong as she used to be, but what the heck. Worse thing she'd do is drop it on the soft grass. I gave her a quick briefing on the gun. The S/A is VERY light so be careful that, and so on... I handed it to her with one round loaded. She didn't bother with S/A just pulled the trigger through. BOOM! I was sort of surprised. She controlled it quite well. She also broke into a big grin and said "I want to shoot it again." I loaded 5 in the cylinder, put the empty chamber under the hammer (A habit of mine at the range. Cartridges are usually packed in multiples of five, I know you can load six). Well, she let those five go with no problem. About the third shot the empty coffee can she'd been shooting at jumped in the air about ten feet and backflipped to the ground. She let out a squeel of delight..."Did you see that?" I sure did honey. I sure did. Then I switched her over to some 44 special reloads I had. She liked them even better. After another cylinder she handed the gun back to me and said she wanted to shoot her Ladysmith. After 25 or 30 rounds she said she was tired and went back to wait in the car. She was still talking about that coffee can flipping last night. She's quite proud of herself and bragging about shooting a 44 Magnum. She said she'd probably never ask to shoot it again, but now she can say she has.
