    Welcome! Hope you can get her interested :) I casually talked with my wife about getting a firearm for months before we picked something up (I was in no hurry). The next day we were back in the store...shopping for her!

    Welcome to NWFC

    My wife told me yesterday that she wanted to get a dedicated .22 upper for her first AR and first firearm. I was so happy I almost cried with joy....... Almost. I've been trying to get her to come around and finally want to shoot.

    In time she will come around and get comfortable with firearms... My wife started off very slow but she now has her own 10/22, S&W revolver, S&W M&P 9 and AR15 and the latter two firearms have been duracoated purple!
