For the married guys here - who is lucky enough to have their wife go shooting with them?

I wish I was one of those guys :lol:

Not a chance in hell.

She's one of those "two finger" people that like to hold firearms with just the two fingers with a show of total disdane.

Too bad, one of these days she is going to need to know how to use the damn things, and won't know how.

Go freakin figgure!

My wife is still on active duty, so she likes to keep in practice prior to quals. But most of the time it's just me and my buddies that shoot.

My wife goes out with me maybe 2 or 3 times a year.

The best story of her shooting though was when we dated. I showed her how to shoot and maybe 3 or 4 weeks after he first time shooting she agreed to go to the Colt Cup with me.

The CC was a slow-fire event using either an AR-15 or M-16 model. By slow fire I mean one had to put each round in individually- no magazine fed. You had 20 minutes to shoot 10 round prone, 10 sitting and 10 standing over iron sights at a target 300 meters.

She was only able to get off 22 rounds in the 20 minutes but she still placed about 2/3rds of the way down- well above many who got off all 30 shots.

Mine usually shoots with me but not right now since she is pregnant. She misses it too. We got an AR-24K the other week that she really wants to try but can't.

My wife is a CAD operator and has had carpal tunnel issues for years. I bought her a .22 rifle last year and I want to get her a little .22 pistol this year. Then maybe I can get her to go.

Yes I'm indeed blessed with a woman who supports my hobbies. And I hers. Back when we got engaged, she wanted a new PC in lieu of a diamond. Errr, ok... She promptly starts a web design business and more than pays for it... Wouldn't trade her for an F-22 :) It's nice to be loved too.. Oh, Her pet gun? A G19 now, but wants an M&P 9 next. Who am I to refuse? I tease her that I'm like Fred Flintstone buying Wilma a bowling ball. She counters "but I'm the one naggin you to go shooting".
