Not Bad for My First Outing...........

Well, I have to say that I'm rather pleased with the way I shot today.

I fired a Glock 19 and I did like it but am anxious to get back to the range and fire some different guns before making a final decision on the gun that's right for me.

I was impressed with the instructor.  He was nice, patient and knowledgeable.  He made everyone feel comfortable and didn't talk down to us at all (I like that).

While my shooting is rough around the edges considering I haven't fired a gun in 15 years, I have to say that my target speaks for itself.

If he were an intruder, he'd be dead.

I do need a lot of work on the precision shots to the side, but I plan on going back often to work on that and shooting with the instructor again.

I had a great time and I encourage all ladies to learn to shoot!


  1. Excellent! So very nice to see this. It is great that you had an instructor that you are comfortable with - that makes a big difference.

  2. Good shootin' Tex!

    Be sure to try out a Smith M&P as well.

  3. Good job, Belle.

    Hands down, I have always preferred to teach women how to shoot over men. During my time in LE, the rookie women agents and deputies always were easier to teach than the men. No Jayne Wayne attitude to overcome.

    Been a long time since I've seen the old FBI Q target. That one's not really the same Q target, but close enough it got my attention.

    Good shooting, good attitude, good instruction, good results. Some formulas just can't be beat.
