Excellent news. congratulations to her. She will be an excellent shooter in no time. Anything worth doing, is worth doing to excess.....
She is doing a very good thing by taking responsibility for her own safety in todays world.
My wife took a pistol course at the range and when she came back I asked her what she shot. She said: .22, 9mm, .38, .40, .357 and .45. I asked how she liked the .357 and she said "it wasn't bad but the .45 was easier shooting".
Many people are afraid of the calibers other people have told them the be afraid of. Women make very good shooters because they take instruction well.
