Hi there. My first pistol was a G26. I wanted something "manageable" for concealed carry. Being new to guns, I wanted something user-friendly and simple. I've had it about 7 months now and I love shooting it - so much that I went out and ordered a G33 and a G36. I didn't buy a gun with the intent to shoot it on a regular basis (aside from the required practice). The gun was purchased so that I could protect myself from a very sick individual. I took my Concealed Carry course, Basic Firearms Traning, etc. My fiancee encouraged me to take some training classes and spend some time at the local range and gun shop (he does NOT shoot or own a gun) so that I can get a feel for things. The men at the gun range (not just the employees and owner) have been unbelievably cool with regard to answering all my questions, letting me shoot all different types of guns (Kimbers, Sigs, a shotgun - Mossberg?, some rifles), reinforcing proper technique, etc. Well, for some reason all this stuff just appealed to me and I have a lot of fun shooting...the people I've met are very nice and I'm a pretty good shot. Eventually I'll try that IDPA thing out. I really didn't think I'd enjoy shooting so much.
Anyways, you mentioned that your wife is a pretty good shot and that she just doesn't seem to care for it as much as you do - maybe you guys just need some variety...if you always go to an indoor range, try and find an outdoor one. If she's bored with pistols, try rifles. Mix it up a little bit, maybe once she finds something she "loves" she'll be more inclined to play! Encourage the ladies to go out shooting on their own or maybe have "range day" once a month. How bout giving her a gift certificate to a training course?
No; that's not my reflection, likeness or legal name on the public Photobucket accounts....kindly, leave my friends alone. :wavey:
