Educational Zone #93 – Took The Lovely Wife Shooting

Today was one of the Quarterly Requalification days for the wife.

She isn’t as big of a shooter as I am, but she enjoys it and I like to keep her qualified to use her pistol if it should ever be necessary.

Today we were going to be shooting my Kimber 1911 Royale and her Smith & Wesson 642-2 Airweight .38 Special.

Here they are.

e93-1

She started out with the Airweight and ran about 75 rounds through it today.

She was disappointed that they all didn’t go into the black, but I assured her that they were in the 8 to 10 ring, and that was good enough.

e93-2

I then shot my 1911 to show her how it worked.

e93-3

She took some good pics.

e93-4

She then said, “I want to try that one.”

So, after a little instruction, she gave it a run.

e93-5

Another one.

Continued below...

e93-6

Here’s her first 7 shots on the target.

I told her that was pretty good for the first time to shoot a 1911.

e93-7

I then shot one of my AR-15s, a copy of the old M-16 I shot at Fort Polk, back in the day.

e93-8

And she had to give that one a try.

She usually shoots pistols right handed, as she is right handed.

But she is left eye dominant, so she shot the rifle left handed.

e93-9

Before we left the range, she reminded me I had a wife along, as she just had to take some pictures of some flowers.

e93-10

And here.

e93-11

Conclusion:
Take your wife shooting, fellows. It is a great hobby and makes them confident that they could handle a pistol if required to do so.

Just be ready in case they shoot better than you do.
