Took my daughter to the gunshow this past weekend and she bought her first own pistol... A Glock 22 .40cal....

Went to the range with her yesterday, you could cover the first fifty rounds she fired at 30ft with a dollar bill....

I’m a videographer, and was driving down the highway one day and saw a billboard advertising that you could shoot full auto on a range nearby.

And thought, “Wouldn’t it be a great video to have some hot honeys in bikini’s shooting full auto”.

When I got home, my wife slapped me.

Here’s a good documentary about Israeli girls going through basic training. My daughter loves it. :-)

I’m thinking about getting my daughter a Lady Smith for Hanukkah this year.

My son is against it (”just get her a regular, good gun”) but he doesn’t understand that our smaller hands really do make it more difficult to handle a handgun. In addition, our hands aren’t as strong as the average man’s.

Photobucket My daughter and I had been shooting this Colt H-Bar and an old High Standard Sentinel .22 revolver. This is on my parents property in NW Florida. It was a cold December day. We had actually finished shooting and she is just posing. We did use both eye and ear protection.

There were a few girls with (toy) guns at Dragoncon. A few photos are in this gallery of mine.

I’m jealous. When my dad found out I’d bought my first gun, he started telling every story he could remember, find, or make up about kids coming in the house and shooting themselves.

There was an article in Backwoods Home Magazine with some suggestions about finding the right gun to fit smaller hands, including some “regular guns” that just happen to fit well: http://backwoodshome.com/articles2/ayoob131.html

From the video explanation:

the director returns to the place where, for the first time, she fell in love with a woman – her commanding officer

Sorry, but it's a lesbian indoctrination video........watch it again....

A lot of guys don't get that. They also often don't get that a too-large caliber can actually injure people with smaller hands and arms. But every hand is different. Has your daughter tried the Lady Smith?

That crap is a small part of the whole thing. The fascinating part is the actual training. It’s tough on these girls.

The one thing that made me shudder was the D*R*A*M*A. I was having flashbacks to my freshman year in college. Girls crying and refusing to say what was wrong. Girls giving the silent treatment. Girls pouting for freaking days over silly issues. Honestly, I don’t know why men put up with it all. (Or why a mature, older man would be interested in such a creature.)

And the drill sergeant just looked patient and very tired throughout the whole thing. I don’t know how she kept her cool.

But, in the end, the girls pushed themselves harder than they ever knew they could and came out better for it.

The contrast between that and what an all-male boot camp is like is dramatic. Makes me even more sure that we should segregate the sexes in the military.

And it made me appreciate being in my 40’s! :-)

Girls firing full auto should be allowed to wear whatever they’re comfortable in, and bikinis are certainly preferable.

But they should darn sure be required at all times to wear HEARING PROTECTION!

That gal on the minigun - if that’s a for real pic, she could go deaf very quickly.

That’s a great article. I sent it to my son. Hopefully this will help him ‘get it’.

My daughter has always struggled with shooting. Her hands are too small, the guns are too heavy, she’s left-handed and left-eye dominate. (her right eye is terrible)

Because the guns never fit, she has trouble handling the recoil. She has to actually have less of a grip to reach the trigger.

The article described the rifle problem perfectly. Her shoulder has to roll back to accommodate the stock and she’s off balance. You can forget firing shots in rapid succession.

I have many of the same problems, but it’s not as bad. i still don’t feel comfortable with most of my husband’s guns. My son’s little .22 pistol is my favorite, but it’s about as effective as a bb gun and very cheaply made.

I guess that I’ll just have to take her out to many places so she can actually feel and try guns until she finds the right one.

She turns 21 in a year and wants to get her concealed carry permit. That give us a year to find the right weapon.

Sorry, brother. I guess that I just didn’t focus strongly enough on lesbians. I’ll definitely try harder to pay more attention to lady-on-lady action in the future.

Laz would approve. ;-)
