My Wife At The Range
Here's some video of my wife at the range showin me how to shoot my HK USP 40.Also shot her S&W 357 airlite,the blast from that thing was like a cannon going off!!
She's got a flinch....watch that last "pull"
Thats awesome that she will shoot with you. One thing, she may want to watch that weak hand thumb wrapped over the strong hand right below that moving slide. If that thumb comes up at all stitches will be in her future. That grip works fine with her revolver but that snappy .40 autoloader could put her in a world of hurt. Just my opinion!
Oh yeah, my wife prefers a .357 too!
I say Bravo to the lady. With a little fine tuning she will be shooting with the best of them. Good luck.
Seriously. This is not a matter of opinion, or nitpicking, or personal preference; this is an urgent matter of firearms safety. If she keeps that thumb wrapped around like that, it is only a matter of time before she sustains a very serious and painful injury. One of these days, she will grab the gun too quickly, or shoot somebody else's gun with a slightly different shape. I have seen this type of injury on several occasions. There is a great deal of blood and crying, and stitches have always been required. Invariably, the shooter turns around with the gun in her (or his) hand, and waves it around while howling in pain.

Good for her for taking up shooting. Please persuade her to move that left thumb alongside the right thumb.
That thumb wrap around the back strap is due to a large frame/reciever for smaller hands.
Make sure she shoots with a pistol that fits her hands.
It's always great to see videos of shooters!
Be safe partner.

Glockamania, Right you are sir,her hands are so small the slide doesn't come close to her thumb....but I did warn her what would happen if the slide got her thumb.She has a S&W airlite and hit hurts her palm,I think she did a great job with the H&K.......
Fred....Yea she flinched,but she also hit the target @ 30 feet every round, with a few bulleyes before emptying a 12 round mag!
The new Ruger...........................
Wow, that's one sexy looking Ruger. Congrats on the purchase!
That's a bad looking Ruger you got there. That should be great for hunting circus rats with that silencer on it. Good luck with it.
Thanks Guys, Yea I love this little plinker! I have been over at rimfire central website drooling for over a month and just had to have one.
.....heres a link to keep you guys busy.......
Baldy, it's just a compensator ....I wish it was a silencer!!!
When you get to be old and decrepit she'll be able to protect you.
