    They're teaching women to intrude?

    "The local chapter will give women of all experience levels the opportunity to be introduced to issues important to female shooters, like safe gun handling skills, general self-defense tactics, and intruder training, Morrill said."

    Zingers and Flingers is a new facility opened up this past year. My wife and I have been there several times when the weather was cold. We have a place to shoot outside when it is nice, but indoors is much more friendly when it is -30 or so. It is a great place, and the people are friendly, helpful, and down to earth. They have a 20? shooting lanes, 10 basic and 10 advanced. They have started some shooting competitions and such, tho with me being gone long hours we have not gotten involved. There have always been a few women shooters there when we were there. I don't have much experience with indoor ranges, other than one other place, but I highly recommend this one.

    They have some supplies, guns and rental guns, but they were just getting kind of set up in that area when we were there and to be honest, the showroom was kind of sparse. But, I have no doubt they will get it together nicely.

    The Well Armed Woman

    Thanks for posting. I personally would like to see more posts regarding The Well Armed Woman, hopefully from the women. Once we get to our next duty station I am in hopes of getting my wife involved with this group to help her learn from others who carry a weapon from the women's point of view. My wife and I are totally different people. It can be hard to ensure she is properly trained with just my point of view.

    I agree, but think it will be tough to make happen. My wife shoots mostly because I want her to, and it's something we do together. Also, I was unable to see and/or get her to stop some bad habits she had that were affecting her accuracy. An outside instructor was able to see some problems in just a couple of shots and get her on the right track. Partly I wasn't that advanced, and partly she wouldn't listen to me. Some things like driving a stick shift, and maybe shooting, shouldn't be taught by a spouse!!??!😳😳😁

    She would never come here, or to any other gun site, I doubt. I have gotten her to carry on the trail while walking the dog, in a mostly wooded area. But, She will not carry in town or if I am along as she knows I will be carrying. It's about 99 percent that she knows it makes me happy, and 1 percent she sees some value in being armed.

    Except I believe in giving them a lot more courtesy and respect for their abilities than that.

    They don't deserve to be referred to so condescendingly.

    Teaching the scions is the first duty of a parent, be it discipline, driving, or gun safety. A professional may add polish but the basics are the parents first responsibility.

    As the scion twig is bent so grows the tree.

    My father was a meticulous driver and Kentucky mountain-boy shooter that taught at the end of a belt. I took commercial driver training and performance driving training. I learned gun safety from my father and polish with commercial shooting training.

    I can relate to your post. Yes, trying to initially teach my wife to drive a stick shift was a royal pain. I have been lucky. My wife seems to love to shoot and carries her side arm pretty much everywhere. It took a little time getting her used to carrying it everyday to include in the house.

    I am in hopes that an outside instructor will help both her and I shoot more accurately.
