Really doesn`t matter when see can`t shot straight. Got something with a big bang to scary the bad guys away. Plus she`s shooting rat shot in it.

She`s getting better though. You would think with all the shooting that my daughter and I do the wife would become interested. NOT.
stumpjumper wrote:Yes and no. See has shot some of the other long rifles we have. Not to good though. But yes that was her first pistol. When I take her to the range see only shoots 38 cal rounds. That plus the fact that it is a little on the heavy side keep the recoil down to a minimum.
I believe the problem was that we were at a public range and she was nervous. I know have a piece of land for her to practice on. I`ll give it another shot this summer.

Thirty years later I still have it but now it just sits in the safe. I shoot the 20 gauge guns below fairly often but not for ducks.
