New Gal from North Texas
A warm hello to everyone, I would like to introduce myself and let you know just a bit about me.
I'm fairly new to shooting and have discovered that these forums are really helpful for people like myself, so first of all a big thank you to those who maintain and support these types of forums.
I found out that once I got over my fear of guns that shooting is the best fun I've had in a long time. My frst gun I bought was a 380 PPK/S and is the gun that I qualified with to get my CHL.....Now I also own a .38 S&W 642, Taurus p22 tomcat, Baby Desert Eagle 9mm and last but not least a Rugger 1022 rifle. Yes I'm getting gun poor (sigh) but I can't seem to help myself. My other half has joined here as well and goes by 'TxPhantom' and is as gun poor as I am. I guess the family that shoots together stays safe together.
I work a lot of hours so I don't get to post much, but I do take to heart all of the advise that you guys who are more experienced can provide.

Hey, glad to have you aboard. I finally got my wife to come for the 1st time last weekend - she hates guns and is scared of them. Hopefully, over time, I will have luck getting her to go with me everytime.
Anyway, happy to have U here
I really can relate to her fear of guns ...I was the same way.....My sister helped me by having me read a few books that convinced me that I really need to learn to shoot for self defense purposes....Perhaps if you get her to read "Stayin Alive" Armed and Female in an unsafe World by Paxton Quigley this just might help her.
Also the more I went to the range and fired my guns the more I was able to be more comfortable with handling them etc.. Knowledge is power so the more she learns the better she will feel about it.
I wish her luck and thank you for the warm welcome.

Well, she is from CHina, and has only been here about 4 years. So, her culture is very different. No one but the military has guns in China.
