  1. Semi-Auto Rifles
    My wife has never been particular enthusiastic about guns, but she's become obsessed with this election and she asked me to teach her how to shoot just in case. We finally got a chance to get down to the range yesterday and I started her off with a 10/22 takedown (plain jane) with cheap federal...
  2. Semi-Auto Handguns
    Wife mentioned she wanted to get her license, something ive put off for a while now. It got me thinkin, if you had to buy one pistol for your first pistol, that might be your only pistol for a while, what would it be and why. Would you choose something else for your wife? If so why? My first...

    I shoot trap/skeet with a Mossberg 12ga but it is a bit long and heavy, and the kick is a bit much, for my wife. I was thinking of getting her a 20ga youth gun, specifically the Maverick 88 youth 20ga. Thoughts and opinions would be most welcome. Thanks! Mark

    Told me to pick out anything I wanted. She bought me a Smith & Wesson M&P Shield in 9mm. When she saw the price, she said, "oh...that's all it cost? Do you want to pick out another one?" Boy do I love her!!

    This is from a friend of mine. We used to train together. Let me know what you guys think: Let me throw some thoughts out and see what the brain trust thinks. I know, monday morning quarterbacking, but here goes. Action begins at 0:30, but it's worth noting the cop's behavior well before the...

    True story.......I've been cleaning out my mothers house, and the next door neighbors were outside. I called them over to see if they wanted any tools, and other items in the garage. I casually mentioned that I offered these items to members of my "Gun Club" ( that's you folks), but had few...
