    Hi all,

    New member. Former army and current engineer. My gf who has never touched a weapon and is now expressing an interest. I figure I'd show her around the net and take her to the WAC show this weekend to find a local female firearms instructor. I look forward to building my collection through this site and a few others. Maybe even meet some fellow enthusiasts.

    Well I think it was myself and her dad talking guns. She also started watching sons of guns and American guns, saw that little ladies can handle a weapon too! I just want to ease her into it. My military training may not nessecarily be the best way to teach her.

    ... true; mil and civ training are oft different results; but, no doubt though, practical experience will always count well.

    Courses teach the right way and point out the bad. Then go and practice some more at indoor/outdoor ranges.
    Practice makes 'perfect' which is why we are good with our roles/jobs.

    All conditions. It's not good weather right now in Seattle, or is it? A little practice with gloves on, reloading with gloves ...

    .... and thank you for your service.
