Thread: Taking my wife to the range.

  1. #21
    I've mentioned this previously...but...this is kinda interesting...My wife had NEVER fired a weapon of any kind in her life, didn't shoot with me, but DID agree to a Vegas vacation at Frontsight Resort. It's quite possible that she was daydreaming about a palm tree-lined resort with poolside service, and posh accomodations (don't know HOW she would have got that idea, maybe because I said "Resort", I don't know; why, all she had to do was go online to see the place, ummm..which, apparently she didn't do). So, here we are, first day of a 5-day handgun course, and she's grinning: "Some people sit on a beach during vacation with drinks with little umbrellas in 'em, but nooooo, not us, here we are in some freakin' bootcamp in the middle of the desert". She is a good sport. Long story short, she had a blast (literally), now knows how to handle a weapon (better than I could have ever taught her), AND has CCW permits. Never let it be said that I don't know how to show a woman a good time.

    After this "resort" you are intending to take her somewhere where she will be sitting on the beach with a drink, correct? ;) As far as CCW permits and handling weapons are concerned, it sounds like you two are having a great time!
    I'm secure enough in my self-esteem that I know I cannot handle a 150-pound guy coming at me, but I can handle a firearm to keep that man away from me. -- Maria Heil

    Ahhh...I see that great minds think alike, yours and my wife's, that is! Actually, (I'm almost scared to admit this), I am taking her on a trip next month - back to Frontsight! Maybe I'll just put a little umbrella in the barrel of her (unloaded) gun and call it good. Think that'll fly?

    I've posted to this effect on this site before. With a great gal who carries along with you, who needs a BUG!!!

    I'm trying to get mine to take the class and get hers. She's been around them and is a good shot. She's even run a reload press before... Yea... I chose her for her looks and her cooking but kept her for the ammo!!!
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Oh dear...good thing there are some women on this forum to supervise!
    Is she aware of this up-and-coming "trip"? Dare I even ask? Seeing as a drink with an umbrella obviously wouldn't suffice (guns and alcohol), may I suggest a leis?

    You're right, Gabby, we testosterone-laden Neanderthals need the calming influence and advice of the "fairer sex" (sexist pig, right? already admitted I was a Neanderthal). In fact, you and "Conservative Wife & Mom" and "Goodcleanfun" are the only women I know that are posting. I hope you continue to do so.

    Yeah, she's aware of the trip. I did promise a little "pool-side" time in addition to boot-camp, so I think I'm safe. Hmmm...I like the idea of a leis. That could work....

    You know me better than that to assume that my intentions were to offend you or any of the other "testosterone-laden" individuals I merely was showing some camaraderie with fellow females, it's important to stick up for one another you know

    Ahh, I'm sure the "pool-side" addition to the trip is very appealing! I once had a leis mailed to me for my birthday from a good friend of mine who lives in Hawaii (ok, so his intentions proved to be testosterone-laden, no surprise there! Only teasing, he was a very nice individual) not only was it stunning--double orchid--but it also smelled wonderful, and lasted for about a week! Definitely a wonderful idea, at least in my opinion

    Ummm...double orchids??!!! I was thinking of one of those cheesy plastic jobbies you can buy in gas stations or something. I mean, c'mon Gabby, this Frontsight gig is expensive!

    Priorities my friend!! Just teasing! I am very certain your priorities are exactly where they need to be aside from the "plastic jobbies" you can purchase at a gas station. Now I looked into this for you, I know how you boys can be about research and reading directions before constructing something They have some very reasonably priced leis on this website. Keep in mind, I will not be offended in the least if you choose not to purchase a leis, I am merely running along with this idea.

    The link you added didn't work. Hopefully, this one does the trick!
