I took these videos this summer and completely forgot I'd put them on Youtube.  This is my wife shooting an iron sighted Marlin .22, 25 yards standing offhand.


This is the same distance, I put up 17 1" pasters and gave her 17 rounds.  She's pretty damn close when she misses.

This needs a poll. IBTP.

And , yeah , she can shoot very well. Both her G19 , and her AR(really mine but it's "for" her).

Link Posted: 11/19/2008 2:06:41 PM EDT
end of story.

She was hitting some milk gallon jugs and making it dance.

Link Posted: 11/19/2008 2:07:32 PM EDT
Yea, and she "out shoots" me regularly.  I just smile and load up another mag.

Yeah, a poll is a good idea.

She can outshoot me at trap, every time.  Shoots 25's once in a while.  She shot small bore when she was a kid, so that explains her .22 ability.  Anything past 25 yards though I've got her beat.  Only because I practice and she doesn't.  I think if she took it real serious she'd be a lot better than me.

in the US Army and was on the Fort Monroe rifle team.....competed at
All Army Championship.......

during a Soldier of the Year competition she out shot all other competitors including
one from the AMU

She shoots good enough to keep me in line.

No, she tends to hit the balls.  (Bad flinch.)

Link Posted: 11/19/2008 3:05:37 PM EDT
Mrs. Cougar either matches my score or beats me at sporting clays, and I shoot more. Kinda incentive to stay inline around the house .
On the rifle range at 25 and 50 yards she does damn good. I can beat her but she hasnt spent as much time behind the rifles as I have. Still puts all 10 in the nine ring at 50 yards and less.
I have no doubt she could cap zombies at 100 yards, no problem

My wife use to out shoot me all the time.  She grew up around guns.  

Link Posted: 11/19/2008 3:32:42 PM EDT
My G/F can shoot.

Not only that yesterday afternoon me and my MOM went to the range together. She probably shoots a couple hundred handgun rounds a month.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 4:08:40 PM EDT
My wife rocks with a pistol.  She's never liked shooting rifles, however.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 4:11:48 PM EDT
I've never shot firearms with my fiancee.  Never had the opportunity.  But we have shot airguns together.  She is just as good or better with airguns than I am.  I figure that'd translate into firearms.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 4:11:54 PM EDT
I have trained my wife on a number of weapon systems.  The Army trained me I trained my family.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 4:17:11 PM EDT
My wife can out shoot most guys at the range (part timers anyway)
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 4:18:46 PM EDT
Nope, but my lil girl can...
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 4:26:10 PM EDT
My wife would NOT shoot when we were first married and for the next two years or so.  Now she is getting her chl, has her own handgun, and shoots my rifles.  I don't have a chl because I work for "the man" and wouldnt be able to carry to work, but now will probably get it since she will have hers.  She enjoys it now.

I am in awe...!

That is all...

And yes...my missus can shoot.  She put 10/10 in the 8" black at 100 yds with my AR/ACOG combo...and it was the first time she ever fired the rifle!

(Then...she took her book, retired to the truck and said she'd wait for me there...that shooting didn't impress her much!  )
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 4:55:33 PM EDT
she isnt bad. when she gets into it she does a lot better. if she is not into it that day then she kinda fucks around.

im going to have her take a defensive pistol class here in the spring. i think she will learn a lot and enjoy it.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 5:00:32 PM EDT
Sure can
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 5:13:22 PM EDT
She knows how to, but isn't very good at it.  When I try to tell her how to improve, she says she's having fun, and tells me to leave her alone.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 5:16:40 PM EDT
Oh yeah, I think I lost my M4 because of it. She decided its hers.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 8:01:44 PM EDT
Oh hells yes she shoots.

her rig weighs more than mine

Link Posted: 11/19/2008 8:12:20 PM EDT
My wife is better, accuracy-wise, than me as long as we're talking handguns.  If speed is involved, like double taps or drawing from concealment, I've got her covered.  She is OK with a rifle.  

For some reason, my little Colt Gov't .380 is a scalpel in her hands.  She's amazing with it.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 8:24:23 PM EDT
My wife can shoot.  Some days better than me some days not.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 8:25:12 PM EDT

She just shot this one last week, 2 shots @ 150 to 200 yds. with a 22-250...when I cut it up the other day, both bullet holes were less than an inch apart, right behind the front shoulder.

Rifle yea . She is a good shot with a rifle .
Not so much .

Mama does pretty well at our 3-gun shoots

Link Posted: 11/19/2008 9:05:29 PM EDT
Hell yeah she can hit a 3'x4' steel buffalo at 500yds. here she is doing it.

Tumor your wife's my hero too, she is beautiful.  

Oh no SO here but I can hold my own.  
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 10:07:31 PM EDT
Yup, she goes shooting with me every time I hit the range.

Mine learned to shoot at Paris Island so she is jam up with a rifle and is awesome to watch field strip an AR.  She never shot a pistol until a few years ago.  She was lights out first time out.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 11:37:48 PM EDT
She carries a FA Uzi Mini as part of her daily routine in a very real and literal sense...yeah, you might say she can shoot.

Link Posted: 11/19/2008 11:54:17 PM EDT
She says she can, but I haven't seen it.
Link Posted: 11/20/2008 2:49:50 PM EDT
My wife had never shot before we got together, I took her shooting and with the typical introductory instructions she equaled me with 9MM, outperformed me with .22LR(claimed my rimfire converted 1911 as her own gun), and would only fire one round of .45ACP-it's a bit big to learn on but she gets points for willing to try. Gave her one round in the .45 and told her if she liked it she could shoot a full mag, and keep going till we ran out. Looks like I have to get another 9, though. She was pissed when my Taurus 92 went away. Thinking of building her a 1911 in 9MM, she likes 1911 feel but not .45 recoil. If my light handloads are still too stout that's the route I'll go. With a baby on the way a Cricket .22 is first though. Just need to find out if it's a boy or girl to know if I need the black or pink stock. We decided to wait till birth to find out the sex, now she's 3 days overdue so any day now. If nothing by Sunday night they're scheduled to induce at 6AM Monday.

She can get the job done.

Link Posted: 11/20/2008 3:13:02 PM EDT
My g/f gets pissed if I go to the range and dont take her with.  She also had never shot a gun before until I took her last year.  She's excellent with a pistol, and I just bought her a Beretta 9mm for Christmas.  She doesn't like rifles too much as she's a petite 5'3  and has a hard time with full stocks, but likes to bench shoot.
