    Default introduced fiance to shooting

    So i took my fiance shooting today for the first time took me almost 2 years to convince her to pull a trigger lol but needless to say she enjoyed it and it was really fun for me to introduce someone to shooting. Now she's bugging me already about going againso looks like ill have an ammo shortage problem soon haha.

    Nice! Hopefully it can become something you'll both regularly enjoy together.

    Might be kinda fun to argue over what you'll get next than whether you're getting it at all.

    Every non-shooter and even ANTI-gunner I've ever been able to coax to the shooting range has loved it and taken a different attitude. Teaching firearms is one of my favorite activities with introducing new shooters to the sport at the top of my list.

    My only problem is every time they shoot one of my guns and like it, it's all of a sudden "their gun".

    This of course rely's entirely on whether she really likes you! If she does not this could be a bad thing.

    Sorry just had to throw that in there.

    Congrats I think. :-)

    That is great! What were you shooting? My wife also enjoys shooting with me. I have to make it competitive though, that really gets her going. Have you thought about purchasing her her own gun, that is one way to be sure to keep her excited about the sport.

    I love teaching people to shoot for the first time.

    Congrats! Wait for a few more trips and she'll shoot better than you do! :-)
