Never enough pics of wives and guns


October 10, 2012, 11:02 PM
This was this past summer, my wife shooting my 700 VLS in .243 that I worked on a little bit. She was scary good with it.

it's always good when the wife gets involved. My wife shot my m&p 9 the other day and loved it. I set up a shoe box at 15 yards and she never missed! Also, she only left me one round by the time she got done!

October 10, 2012, 11:10 PM
The first real gift I bought her was an M&P9, she loves it!

October 10, 2012, 11:12 PM
That's great! I think my wife still likes my single six and 10/22 more than the others but that's fine with me. They don't cost as much to feed!

October 11, 2012, 12:20 AM
Don't have pics right now but the wife's gun of choice is a glock 36, and a Remington Mohawk 600 in 308. She also likes 44s and 357s.

October 11, 2012, 09:59 AM
At one point my wife had more guns than I did...She currently has a Savage 99 in .300, a Remington 141 in .35, A mossberg 702, a Kel-Tec P3AT, and a Phoenix HP22. She also casts an envious eye at my Ruger MKII (10" bull stainless) and my Browning BL-22. While she does shoot my Mosin-Nagant sporter, she won't touch my Kel-Tec PF-9 because she doesn't like the texture of the grip.

October 11, 2012, 10:44 AM
yeah for you im trying to get momma to shoot the .556 and the 30-30 she will shoot the 1911s

Her shooting the Marlin 60.

Her with the Ruger M77 .243 she got for Christmas.

Shooting the Ruger Blackhawk .45 Colt.

And the .40 Sig 2022.

October 11, 2012, 12:35 PM
No pics because I'm not a big pic taker but my wife likes shooting my HiPoint 995TS carbine. I've tried to get her to shoot my m44 but no luck yet, I just can't figure out why :p.

October 11, 2012, 12:49 PM
My wife loves to shoot her favorite is my marlin 917v she bought it for me for my birthday a week after we got married but she pretty much claims it as hers and its all she will shoot. Shes pretty good too scary good actually lol. No pics of her shooting though closest hunting shooting related pics of her are I took pics of here helping butcher the buck I got last year I quarter it up and drink beer she cuts it up and packages, grinds and seasons it!.

You're married to Kirstin Dunst? I didn't even know she was married!

My wife does not like to shoot sadly. She's not the least bit against it mind you...just doesn't care for it. Cooking...boy oh boy can she cook...and bake.

I get her to shoot about once every 5 I am a little jealous.


October 11, 2012, 01:58 PM
the wife with her 44 mag ,super blackhawk ,10 1/2 bull barrel with a red-dot on it , and she has her glock on her hip , we spent the day killing Barnie !!!:evil::what::evil:

The wifey engaging in a little AR fun and showing good trigger discipline.

Sure, why not:

October 11, 2012, 03:38 PM
No pictures yet, but mine goes with me about
twice a month.

The first revolver I bought was an Interarms in .45 Colt.
We took it to the range where I was to teach her to shoot.

She shot a lot better than I did.:banghead:

I didn't take her back to the range until I had practiced.
We still laugh about that 29 years later.

October 11, 2012, 04:11 PM

All of you guys are very fortunate. Some of you might enjoy watching a young lady shoot/describe her guns on Youtube, under "Faliaphotography". One is a breakdown of the Robinson XCR-M .308, semi-auto rifle.

My wife's arms are too weak for her to even want to hold a .22 rifle, but I'll show her what can be possible with motivation.

This is about a year ago, she now nags me to go shooting more often. I'm thinking of getting her certified as an instructor as well to teach women and couples.

No ... it's a military range with reactive targets.

October 13, 2012, 02:51 PM
Float Pilot,

That is a nice little Swede she has there. Always wanted one but the closest I got was a 93 Spanish 7mm Carbine. That thing barked loudly and had a kick that let you know when you fired it with old blue box bulk surplus FMJ from Inter arms (that aught to age me). The carbine ring tingled on its bar when you shot it. That one got away from me.

Lucky guys! My wife wouldn't be caught dead touching a gun, let alone shooting one, or even going to the range with me and the grandson. Of course, a friend of hers killed himself with one many years ago, and she was stuck cleaning up the mess. So I can kinda understand her feelings on it.

But having a wife/girlfriend to go shooting with would be most awesome.

October 14, 2012, 01:11 AM
Not wife or fiance, but shooting buddy. It is nice having my own EMT at the range!

October 16, 2012, 12:06 AM
She fired a rifle for the first time a week before these were taken. Used her .243 Ruger Ultralight, and my .22 Hornet. She heard me fire the .270, and said "I want to shoot that rifle". This is her second range trip, shooting the .270 at 100 yds. She overlapped the first 3 rounds 1/2" left of the bullseye! The loads were 150gr. Nosler Partition with 53.0gr. IMR4350, a little over 3,000 fps

October 16, 2012, 12:17 AM

I was born and raised in Nekoosa. 6 years ago I joined the Air Force and got stationed in GA. I try to make it home at least once a year to see my folks and we always wind up going to the range.

Here's another, we just took Sunday. She was having a hard time controlling my .40 and wants something by her side of the bed, so we got her a .38 Special. She shoots it MUCH better than my Sig.

October 16, 2012, 03:06 PM
i would like my wife to shoot. Unfortunately the big rifles might be a bit much. a .22 would be better.

Haha, sorry let me explain. She doesn't like when I post pictures online, or even meeting 'strangers' online. Guess girls think a little differently

October 16, 2012, 10:23 PM
Maybe get a good one with her back to the camera so that no one can identify her. That's the only way I was going to put up a pic of my wife online. Call me paranoid or whatever, but not everyone on the internet is well intentioned.

October 17, 2012, 02:02 AM
I was trying to pick a pic to post until the mention of not showing faces. :confused:

What do the ill intentioned types do with your picture? I'm not arguing, just ignorant. :o

Here are a few of my lady doing the gun/shooting thing:

Practicing for IPSC matches (or just having fun):

Proving that 100lb women can handle recoil with the .50 BMG. She hates going into gun stores and being told how she'd really be more comfortable with a .380, etc:

Modeling my duty gear one night after I got off shift (she's been to a police academy herself, but decided she'd play cops-n-robbers with my stuff). She actually made it fit pretty well considering I outweigh her by about 85lbs:

Shooting an eastern-block style sniper rifle at a 600 yard gong. That rifle was surprisingly accurate (not ours):

I'll add another. I posted a pic of her with her .243 she got for Christmas last year. Here she is with it this past Saturday with her first ever deer. It's a little one, but it sure is tender. :) 157 steps, dead in it's tracks.
Oh yeah, I also took her out to the cave and made her handload her own rounds to hunt with, so she loaded the bullet that killed it too. :)

actually the fr-8 left me not long after the girl did. i was headed to basic and had already quit my job. got a few hundred bucks for it and enjoyed my last few weeks at home

Wife would shoot me if I posted a pic of her on line and she's a reel good shot. Wish I had a picture of the last body target she shot, she made a point of proving she can change a rooster to hen.

December 12, 2012, 12:44 AM
My wife shooting my Inland Carbine last fall. Let's just say she and the rifle were manufactured about the same year. :)

We've been married 44 years and this was the first time she ever went to the range with me. I was going through some of her Dad's WW II papers (he was a Navy surgeon attached to MAG-15) and came across the paperwork for the M1 Carbine issued to him on Kwajalein. I told her she could shoot a twin of her Dad's old rifle and she jumped at the chance. She had a blast and shot very well for an ER nurse who thought she hated guns. I may have made a convert.

Maybe she will describe her shooting sports to her coworkers at the clinic or hospital.
In MA that could grab peoples' attention very quickly.

Our next door neighbor is an ER physician, and I will ask her whether many of her coworkers (a few hospitals) are able to view guns as sporting and defensive tools.

December 12, 2012, 10:13 AM
Let's hope they're open to rational discussion. We live in a part of the state where there are NRA stickers on every truck, and all our friends hunt and shoot, so I guess it's possible.

However, I have a daughter who's an ER doctor at an inner-city hospital in Boston. Day after day she's up to her elbows in the traumatic results of misused guns. It's not rational, but I guess it's understandable that she doesn't quite see the big picture.

She did get a kick out of the picture of her Mom shooting, and I've got her husband into clay pigeons, so I guess there's hope.:D


December 12, 2012, 11:20 AM
The wife's cousin's husband is an ER surgeon in Philly.
He tells me he is the only one that can fix you if the bullet goes through the chest and the stomach.

When I shoot a deer or antelope, I aim at the front 1/3 of the animal. I want to keep the wound channel above the thoracic diaphragm.

If I had life to do over, I would have taken pictures of my wife when she was willing to go shooting with me from the first shot she fired in 1976 until the last shot she fired in 1984.

Her 15 yard target after a magazine of double tapping.
Yes she can out shoot me with a gun but not with a bow.

December 12, 2012, 12:49 PM
Nice photos JohnB. I am a few years away from taking my daughter to the range but I can't wait. Wife loves to shoot and grew up in the country doing plenty of shooting with a 22 rifle and a 410 shotgun.

I also love the pro gun sticker on your truck from the 1973 photo.

Voodoo--With that kind of doubletap shooting you better not make her mad. Excellent shooting.

December 12, 2012, 01:24 PM
THAT'S what I want. A place I can shoot off my back porch.

December 12, 2012, 01:39 PM
30528 is the zip code. Come on up, we're not that far from you are there are some smokin' real estate deals out here right now. We are currently renting this place, we'll be making the decision on whether or not to buy it sometime late this summer so we've been looking at comps. This place is a 1300sq/ft 2br 2ba with a full walkout partially finished basement (another bedroom and bath) on just over 4 acres, the price is about $160K. It listed 4 years ago for $216K. There is a ridge that wraps around the front and side of the house. From the back of the house there is a 100 yard range across a draw, and up in front about 60 yards from the house is my pistol range. Hard to get long sight lines out here with the mountains which makes 22s very popular. That 117 yard line is to a downed tree safely down below the top of the ridge, we stick golf tees in the log and shoot ping pong balls off of them with 22 rifles.

But back to the wives and guns: I had to include that first pic for the shoes. Rapid fire with an AK can rock you back on your heels, or in this case heels and an AK are pretty rockin'.

December 12, 2012, 03:04 PM
A lot of lucky guys here! The only thing my wife will shoot is her mouth, and it's always aimed at ME! But seeing all these photos gives me hope that there really are good ones out there.

December 12, 2012, 03:41 PM
I hope to one day be able to post a picture in this thread. Until I get a wife, though, that will have to remain a hope.

December 12, 2012, 04:58 PM
my wife doesn't shoot, but one day in the spring we went mushroom hunting along the river. I took my Browning Buckmark to plink at objects or snakes along the way. Talked her into giving it a try and she is a natural! I have a tremor so pistol shooting is not that easy for me. My wife is steady as a rock and consequently finds it easy to hold on target. Plus she is not a girly girl and has grit. With practice, she could be really good; much better than me in fact. Maybe I can get some pics soon.
