And I LOVE it.

I got to shoot guns for the first time today.

I think my favorite was the AR15 and the Ruger 357 Magnum.

The Beretta 40 caliber pistol is a close tie with the Ruger.

The 22 long rifle pistol was the least favorite.

And I didn't use the Mossberg 12 Gauge turkey gun enough to make a judgment.

Or maybe her skin got all tingly resulting in a galvanic skin response. Or the authorities are after her with ground surveillance radar.

Yes, one can be quite a dick in these forums, even without pictures.

I am so happy for you and America! I definitely want to see pictures. Should you ever get to Louisville, Ky you have full access to my arsenal of weapons as my guest at Open Range Sports.

See Women and Guns video here.

I am always pleased when an intelligent person is introduced to the joy of recreational shooting. Especially if it's a woman. I've never known one person, male or female, who, when properly introduced to the hobby, didn't like it once they tried it. This includes women who were "afraid" of guns. I've been told knowledge is power and learning the skills associated with shooting are empowering.

I just changed my insurance company and saved a bunch of money. But they asked for a photo inventory and serial numbers of particular items I wanted insured, guns and guitars specifically. I've posted numerous photos of certain weapons and combinations of my weapons but I realized that I didn't have a group photo of them all in one place. I thought I'd kill two birds so with one photographic shot.

Holy cow! I've never seen them all out at the same time. It looks like an evidence photo after a raid. Now some folks may call that a lot of guns. Some won't. Usually I have just one in my pocket. If I go to the range, I only take one or two more with me.

Top: Ruger 1022 with aftermarket stock, barrel, compensator, trigger job and Wal-Mart scope. A $200.00 gun with $550.00 of modifications. I shoot this the most. Even Eley rifle match grade .22 LR is cheaper than cheap 9mm.
Next Row: Colt Mustang .380 Absolutely delightful to hold and shoot. Discontinued around 1996. The guy who sold it to me said it had the CDI factor. I asked what that meant. He said, "Chicks dig it." He was right. There were three other Colt Mustangs among my immediate neighbors. Two were owned by guys and the third by my lovely and feminine lesbian friend. Her new partner also has a gun and a CCDW permit. I'll never sell mine... unless the offer is really right. My Beretta cx4 Storm Carbine in 9mm (uses Beretta 92F magazines) with Tru-Glo Dual Color Red Dot Sight and Red/Green Laser attached. For the Zombie Apocalypse. Bought to replace the GSG-5 as my black rifle.
Next row: GSG-5 semi-auto .22 caliber copy of H&K MP-5 sub machine gun with optional top rail, tri-rail fore end and fore grip. Impulsive purchase. A fun plinker but I'd rather shoot the Ruger 1022. BTW, due to a law suit by H&K against GSG and the importer. It is no longer available in the US. They ain't getting cheaper. I'll sell it. The cx4 Storm replaces it.
Next: Glock 19 9mm with TacLite for house and car. An ideal general purpose pistol. I've put 4,000 rounds through it without a a single failure. My Glock 17L longslide with competition trigger and adjustable sights for target and entry level competition. I'm thinking about selling both Glocks and getting a Glock 34 for both duties. My Ruger LCP, my regular .380 caliber pocket pistol. Very small. Not unpleasant to shoot but not much fun either. My Smith & Wesson 422 - a .22 caliber plinker inherited from my Dad. Not crazy about it but won't sell it.
Next: Remington 870 Wingmaster 12 Gauge Pump with slug barrel. Law enforcement trade-in, carried a lot, shot a little. A great bargain on the most powerful and intimidating home defense weapon available.
Bottom: Eig-Einar Eig-Eibar single shot .410 shotgun. Made in Spain it says. My maternal grandfather gave me this for my 16th birthday back in 1966. I fired it six times that day. I wounded a squirrel. I felt kind of shitty about that. Never was interested in doing the whole killing, cleaning, cooking and eating sequence from start to finish myself. Gramps took me hunting mostly because I had better eyes and ears than he did. I haven't fired this gun since that day.

HEADLINE: Toggy shot a bunch of guns for the first time. She loved it.


And I'm glad.


Quote:
Obviously if they don't like it they weren't 'properly introduced to it'


Mark, I didn't say that. A proper introduction to any activity is more likely to make it enjoyable, I just recounted my personal experiences. I've introduced three or four women and a couple men friends to the shooting sport in a safe, well supervised, climate controlled, state of the art indoor range with an appropriate weapon or series of weapons. Not everyone I've shown has rushed out and bought gun but no one has declined a subsequent invitation because they thought it was unpleasant, painful or morally objectionable. The probable reason for that is I don't go inviting everyone I meet or know to come shoot guns with me. I only invite people who have expressed some degree of interest in my hobby. My goal is to make people comfortable with firearms and bring people into the sport. Not take them somewhere and wave my naked mole rat around. The more folks who are comfortable with and knowledgeable about guns and see shooting sports as just another mainstream hobby that normal people can enjoy, the more votes on my side of the ballot should gun control become a political football.

My current cultural companion inherited a .22 caliber pistol five years ago. We shot that, then she bought a snub nosed .357 revolver to take with her when she goes to her remote country house (She won't tell me which remote country it's in). Recently she bought a Glock 34 and had after market sights and a new trigger installed for fun. She is having her son build a private outdoor range on the country property this spring.

Of course, there may be someone who truly won't enjoy it no matter how and where it's introduced. I've just haven't met someone who has never fired a gun, who isn't curious enough to try it once under safe and supportive circumstances. I say supportive because no one wants to be embarrassed doing something for the first time.

An improper introduction to any activity is likely to discourage further participation. I've seen plenty of youtube videos in which a young lady or person of small stature is handed a powerful handgun, shotgun or high powered rifle without proper instruction on grip and stance with painful results to the shooter. Not funny despite the chuckling boyfriend's reaction. I suspect people who get hurt while behind the gun for the first time may have reservations about shooting again.

I suspect people who are improperly introduced to boxing may not like it.

"This is called a jab." POW!!!
"Sorry was that too hard? You try it." SWISH!
"That's called ducking. This is called an uppercut." POW!!!
"Wait. What do mean you want to quit? I just getting ready to show you the gloves and protective head gear."

I'll let someone else do the sex analogy.

This is a bit like when we put our games collections on BGG. (I badly need to update my collection btw; I promise you, it's much bigger than it looks like, and it satisfies me and all my friends and is definitely more than my gf can handle already)

Is there a Gun Geek, where you can put what weapons you have, upload new weapons to the database, rank weapons, review weapons etc? If not, then I think there's a big fat hole on the market, and some gunnut accustomed to this great website (and there are a few apparently) should rush to make one. It'd be hugely popular. Not just in the States; a lot of jealous Europeans would also sit there and browse your collections and make up imaginary shopping lists should they ever get emancipated from their oppressive socialist governments.

gungeek.com is taken though, but weapongeek.com is free! Come on, register it, make WeaponGeek, and upload your collection today! Get ads, fuck your work and get rich from your hobby!

Oh, what have I done whistle

This one looks great to me. There is a certain elegance to the simplicity.

My googling suggest it should be "Eig-Eibar".

You are correct. It's "Eig-Eibar". The N is next to the B on the key board and they both looked wrong to spell check.

But that's just like us! I've got a Monopoly that people don't see on BGG, but first when they come to my home, I lock the door and no one can hear them scream.

But maybe you could have different levels? Some weapons are for all to see, some only for people with an account, some only for your WG-buddies, and some only for you.

I was going to ask the same, thinking this would be a thread about 'S' and not guns. My favorite so far was a Pump Action gauge 12 shotgun I fired when I was in US.

As a proponent of gun control I have to say, when I will finally visit good 'ol US of A I will want to try some shooting at a range. Cool stuff.

Took my wife shooting this past Saturday. She was afraid of guns. I was very patient with her, answered all of her questions, and taught her all of the ins and outs of gun safety.

She said she was about to puke the first time she aimed the gun and fired it downrange at the target. It's very intimidating when someone has never done it, and has been raised to believe that guns are "bad". After that first shot though, she settled right in, fired off the whole magazine, she dropped the magazine, set the gun down, and breathed a huge sigh of relief.

I went ahead and shot a full magazine, and asked her if she wanted to do it again. She said, "Yes." and then fired off an entire magazine again, putting every round in the silhouette. She dropped the magazine, set the gun down, and stepped back for me to reload and fire. I asked her a third time if she wanted to, and she said, "No, I'll just watch you." I said that's fine, and fired another full magazine. While I was reloading the mags, she tapped me on the shoulder and asked to shoot again. I got a huge grin on my face, and she then proceeded to fire another three full mags.

Fast forward to that evening, at my sister's house. We were sitting around after dinner, and she asked me to see my sister's 1911. I laughed and told her to just ask my sister, she'd be happy to show it to you. The gun we were firing was a little CZ vz82 in 9x18 Makarov. My sister got her 1911, cleared it, and handed it to my wife. My wife only said, "I really want to shoot this gun."

Next weekend, all four of us are going shooting again. I think she has been bitten by the gun bug.
