My wife and I have been married for 11 years. In all that time, I've never been able to get her to
shoot anything other than a 9mm H&K pistol I bought her for concealed carry. I asked her to shoot
some of my evil toys with me this past Monday and was nearly floored when she said yes.

I'ts hard to tell in the video, but she's a very athletic although petite woman. The size small field
jacket swallows her. Anyway, I gave her a few shooting and safety instructions and then got her
set. I had her fire 5 rounds in semi to make sure she was good to go and then I gave her a fresh
mag. The video is what happened next

She needs to work on her trigger discipline.


Keep in mind that she has never fired a rifle of any kind in her life.

Me thinks you have yourself a new shooting buddy.

Lucky bastard.

What is she shooting at?
Water?

I think you're right, I haven't seen her smile and laugh that hard in a long time.
She said " I had no idea it would be that fun".

She thought that before she pulled the trigger.

That is awesome!

Damn I want one of those(the go fast switch, not a wife)

Some more lessons and then yer in trouble.

FMD's break down on it from after a carbine class in May last year.


Yep. Your progression will go something like this:

(How'd she do that?)
(WTF? Must be beginner's Luck!)
(Uh-oh - I've created a monster!)
(Man I gotta practice more!)
(Wait, She's my monster!)
(I can't wait to go shooting with the guys, and bring her along!)

Link Posted: 1/25/2006 7:56:59 AM EDT
She is hooked! Might as well order the stripped lower and start her build.

Now she understands why I buy ammo in bulk.

Having my wife as a shooting buddy is the best thing. During the highpower rifle season we shoot 3 matches a month then debrief each match over lunch while discussing the next time we can get to the range to practice.



She's all for buying thousands of rounds at a time. Oh yeah, all rifles come to our house as his and hers right down to the dedicated .22lr uppers used for training.
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 9:08:19 AM EDT

Tag...

ETA: That laugh is classic dude... My wife laughed the same way the first time she shot my McBro's .50
One thing I learned from my grandparents, families that play together stay together.

That should be used in an ad for repelling the MG ban.

Make a woman laugh and she'll stick around.
Looks like a fun date, with the wife.
Thanks for sharing.

I'm jealous on two counts.
1) You have FA.
2) Your wife will go shooting with you.

Oh, and I noticed that at 00:03/00:07 when she turns around laughing, she looks a little bit like Jennifer Aniston.

That's what everyone says! I can't believe you caught that in such a short and poor quality video.
