My 15 year old grand daughter lost her father to gunfire.
I felt it best to take her to the range sometime after that, to get back on the horse that threw her.
She did really well with the 77/22 and SP101, until some guy showed up with a hand cannon in the next lane.
"Grampa, I'm done now."
And we left.
She did well that day.
My wife had not shot in 5+ years and walked into our shooting shed, grabbed a FN 509T (RMR) with a can on it and hammered the center out of a 30' target 3 weeks ago, right before a shoulder surgery.The wife and I did a “date night” on Tuesday. We shot her AR and my Precision at gongs at 200m.
That was her first time shooting a rifle in about 2 years.
She just never wants to go. But she says she has fun every time though.
I’m getting a FNX Tac 45 in the next week, and my stamp for my Dead Air Ghost-M can should be here around the same time. I might have to do a copy of your guys’ outing with her. She’d probably like that.My wife had not shot in 5+ years and walked into our shooting shed, grabbed a FN 509T (RMR) with a can on it and hammered the center out of a 30' target 3 weeks ago, right before a shoulder surgery.
She's had a number of health issues that prevented her from shooting but I have assurances, she's ready to train again, with a rifle and that's really good stuff.
Keep offering, keep it fun and keep shooting.
