    Ladie's Handgun 101 at my range tonight

    Man, I'm beat. My range hosted a Ladie's Handgun 101 shoot tonight. I volunteered to help out yesterday and wound up spending three hours instructing. It was worth it, but I'm just worn out now.

    We had about 8 shooters show up, give or take, including at least a couple who had never fired any kind of gun before. We had four people instructing, so everyone was able to get personalized attention. The shooters did well and I think they all had a good time as well. The ballon shoot at the end seemed to go over especially well. The ballons didn't seem to last long and I had a shooter who surprised me when she popped 10 with 10 straight shots from my CZ-75 with the .22 Kadet kit, especially since she hadn't fired that gun before.

    One of the new shooters was there as a favor to her son. At the begining of the night she said she "hated guns," but she did well and seemed to have a good time. I didn't ask her if she'd shoot again though.

    Tommorrow I'll clean the guns; tonight it's off to bed.

    I have GOT to find a range closer to my house. Part of the reason I'm so beat is the two-hour round trip to the range and back.

    Sounds like it was a sacrifice. But from here, it looks like it was worth the effort.

    Thanks for your service to "the cause".

    My experience with women who are novices is that they're more attentive to instructions and have less pre-conceived notions on firearms handling. In short, they didn't learn from movies and TV like a lot of guys do. Kudos to you for your service to the community. :cool:
