Beth gets to the range!

Beth putting "Hurt Spots" all over a bad guy poster!

Beth over at She Who Will Be Obeyed got out to the range for her first serious attempt at handgunning, and proved once again that women are better handgunners, at least starting out. I suspect it's that they don't have as many bad habits to overcome!

Sounds like a good time was had by all.

Here's the whole story!

Check out the picture of her target while you're there!

Oh, Gosh, Mr. Completely, thanks for linking to me. I think I will need a ton of practice to be as good as John (of Argghhh!) is - he had 50 shots in the center of his target.

This is embarrassing - all the gun bloggers are going to Beth's and leaving comments... and no one checks out my side of the story...

Heh. I really wandered far from the fold, didn't I?

Who was her coach?

Please, please, please tell them BOTH to get that weak hand thumb along the left side of the frame!

This is a semi-auto folks! It oscillates! ... and that oscillation WILL cut grooves in her weak hand thumb as soon as it sneaks into range, as it will with a (more correct) higher grip.

Ditto, that was the first thing I saw in the picture. As an instructor I've seen both sexes make the same mistake. I explain & explain to'em what's going to happen & I'll remind them 3 times on the range, after that it's 'learn for yourself the hard way'. Haven't seen anyone repeat after having the hide barked off. Quite a sight to see a guy's wife behind the firing line bent over double laughing "he told you not to do that you dumb butt".
