Took Mrs. Colt to the range where she bought the S&W 38spl yesterday. It's 6 lanes and only 15
yards long plus busy for a Tuesday. It's been about 15 years since shes fired a weapon but she did pretty good all things considered. We had an instructor in lane to our left running some guards thru their quals and hot brass was flying over the top and pelting both of us which really was a major distraction + the range safety glasses were scratched all to hell,rectified that issue today with new pair.
She started off using the laser which turned out, not a good idea, and jerking some shots. With the laser off she was getting the hand grip and trigger control down better and at least keeping all the shots on the paper. The Airweight is a handful @15ozs & LOUD but she handled the recoil pretty well, I tried about 10 shots and hope the trigger will smooth up after some use. To be honest I've seen much better triggers for a S&W. When we got home she was very talkative about guns and wants to try my Kel-Tec P-11 9mm about same size and weight + she can rack the slide back? Then I made the big mistake, I put the Browning Hi Power in her hands. I was told take this one NEXT range trip
Dr.FRANKENSTEINN HAS CREATED A MONSTER!
