I took my wife and daughter to the range with me today. After getting my daughter set up on the 50 yard range with her bolt action 22, I asked my wife to come down to the 100 yard range and try my SPR:

And she quickly showed me what she was made of:

5 shots...100 yards....that's embarassing....for me

I wasn't going to be outdone so I suggested she try shooting a more manly gun . My Rem 700 chambered for .308:

That didn't work either

Another 100 yard 5 shot group.

That's the last time she goes shooting with me

Don't be ashamed. Mrs. thebomber could probably outshoot most of us here.

I know how you feel. I took my oldest son for the first time years ago. I hand him my 1911 and put the target at 7 yds. He aims, shoots....dead center . Then the smartass looks at me and says "This is too easy. Can we put it out farther"

Dude, I've got only one thing to say to you: don't cheat, cause no matter what, she will find out, and then you can run, but you'll only die tired

Nice to see the scopes are properly zeroed.

+1 on the "Don't think about cheatin' note"

Does she have a sister? One that isn't insane, married, bitter, under indictment, irresponsible....

As your lawyer, I advise that you not even consider divorce. She's too good a shot, and she might hurt you. BTW, I know how you feel. My wife is deadly with the AR and her 1911.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

Good looking and great shooting, Id brag on her evry time she pulled the trigger.

Thanks....that's basically what I was doing. She got a kick out of my post. What I am surprised about was how she handled the .308 recoil. She's not that big and other than the initial "wow" she seemed unphased. In fact she said it was fun to shoot.....go figure......I probably could of gotten away buying the 700 without selling one of my other ARs.

Good fun, I like to have family shoots.

I like your photos.

I can't decide which is the sweetest.
The rifles, the shooter or the groups.

I bet she was using only iron sights as well.
Link Posted: 8/29/2004 8:26:42 PM EDT
Need pics of the daughter too, she sounds like a sweetie.

Remind me not to get on Mrs. Bomber's bad side!

This is from last fall. Man they grow a lot in a years time. Next time we go out I'll be sure to get more pictures at the range.
