    I got my field plowed and put up a new cable to keep Virginia Power Out (They take shortcuts to their easement) , then we decided to shoot.

    It was an interesting day.

    I started Jane at 15 yards and after going over the basics, moved her back to 20 yards.

    She was on a Roll.




    This was her best 20 yard group of the day (Girlie Boolits):shock:




    I wan't gonna be outdone by my wife so I got rid of the city gun and switched to the BFR



    And my group was a little bigger:what:




    All in all, it was a pretty good day. Didn't get near the work done I had to, but a good day anyway. OC'ed at Amelia Lumber again...

    When I first quickly read this, I thought you were shooting at Virginia Power.I took a deep breath and re-read.

    Nice grouping for your better half by the way.

    No...Didn't even cross my mind

    They can save a 2 mile drive to their equipment by crossing my land but they dig ruts in the roads so I just cable them out. This time the actually removed a gate and didn't put it back...so I locked it and put up a game camera. If they cut the lock, they will have to splain it to the Judge.

    I don't have power with them BTW, I'm solar and wind powered...a little hydro to the outside lights.

    Peter, I wouldn't want to get shot even with the girlie boolits. Your target looks like you were channeling Mel Gibson.

    I have only seen one bear on my property
    I also have a better half that is far to accurate for me to step out of line!! I don't know what it is but it seems that most women are great shots.

    Nice shooting guys. My only suggestion would be for Jane to lean a little more forward. This will probably help out on follow up shots versus leaning back like that. Or maybe it's how the pic was taken...

    She's been getting it from all sides about that. Proshooter mentioned it as well as her grip and I had too. That picture is the last of a series of high speed frames. She is in full recoil in it (The slide isn't fully closed) While she is leaning too much, it isn't as bad in the previous frames.

    As a marksmanship instructor for over 20 years, I have been telling women the same thing. One of them responded by grabbing her chest and said "YOU DON'T HAVE TO COMPENSATE FOR THE SIZE AND WEIGHT OF THESE, DO YOU???"

    I still mention the need to put your weight near the front of their feet to all my shooters, but I don't stress it as much if a woman is well-endowed. I try not to aggravate anyone while they're holding a loaded weapon... If they're shooting as well as your wife does, I leave them alone. Period.

    I was going to ask you about the men who are well-endowed, but I don't want to get Ed mad at me.

    I wanna see the lock-cutting pic, too. THAT will be the pic worth a thousand words... or at least a few thousand $$$

    With a grouping like that, I would not mess much with her technique.

    Never be sorry about helpful hints.
    To be honest, it's hard to teach your wife anyway but all of my defensive and offensive training with a handgun, has been with revolvers.

    Most of my handgun hunting is either with single shots or big revolvers.

    The BFR is the most difficult gun I have to shoot. Slow lock time and muzzleheavy. It's more like shooting a bow as far as maintaining my stance.

    Transiting into an auto has been an exercise in patience. While I know the talk, the walk takes concentration.

    Trying to correct her techniques without passing on my bad habits is tough.

    I will testify *not from PeterNap's teaching* but from having a loved one trying to teach/enhance/correct my shooting, it's a LOT harder to take their suggestions sometimes. It was much easier for me to learn from someone who was a family friend but who I didn't have to go home with at the end of the day. Not that I don't appreciate my traveling companion's help but its very hard to take his advice sometimes. Maybe that's why I ran into a guardrail...

    Candy, I'll help you with marksmanship any time you want... You don't know me, so you can bring your travelling companion too. I've met a few folks on here. They can attest that I don't bite (although they've seen my kids put away some serious groceries at a cople dinners and picnics).

    For anyone here on OCDO, I won't even charge. Just bring your gun & bb's. I have the targets and the range.

    My "creds": Military marksmanship instructor from 1985until retirement in 2005
    Top 10% finish, National Pistol Trophy Match atCamp Perry1993
    Distinguished Pistol Shot 1994

    I teach part time now. I usually charge $20/hr, but for my friends here that have answered my silly questions, helped me when I was lost and given fellowship at dinners and picnics. My chance to "give back" to the OCDO community.
