 So, I hosted and taught a Womens Only Basic Handgun course today. . . Had 15 women from across the state!  (seriously, from Anidarko to Bristow).  Two were family members that I don't get to see often.  It was great catching up with them!  The other 13 were a conglomeration of ladies who were all wonderful!  We started the morning out talking about basic handgun stuff, safety, makeup of a firearm, use, fundamentals. . . Then, after a scrumptious lunch that my Mommy came over and fixed for us we went out and shot.  Shot a lot!  Shot a lot in the heat!  Got a sun burn on the back of my calves. Odd looking sun burn, it's not even symmetrical on both calves.  I didn't get very good pictures because I was "instructing", my camera was floating around between a few people, but I thought I'd share what I did get. . . 

This is Star, she is a very spoiled Jersey who loves being loved on and Katie (my sister) just happened to offer her some lovings.  In the back you'll see 76 and 81, Katie had set a table up with some pampered chef goodies and they were checking them out!  I think they wanted to place an order but Star was hogging Katie.
 This is John, Pam, and Tara.  John was "instructing" them on the use of a Walther P22.  Each lady got to shoot 50 rounds out of the Walther P22.  They are fun and easy firearms to shoot!  Great for learning!
 This is Kathy, Me, and Amber. . . They too are learning the Walther P22.  I *think* Kathy's firearm of choice would be the revolver, she was deadly with it!!!!!!
 Here we have Stacy, Me, and Vicki.  They both did a great job.  Vicki had a perfect grip every time!
 Again Stacy and Vicki shooting. . . .
 Jennifer and Melissa working the Walthers. . .
 This is my cousin Sherry and her friend Annie.  Sherry is a few (ok several but don't tell her I said so) years older than I am.  She went to school to be a teacher (crazy lady) and I remember my freshman year she was filling in for a teacher who was on leave due to a pregnancy.  It was Humanities class and we were suppose to watch Fiddler on the Roof. . . Sherry didn't like Fiddler on the Roof and I'm sure you can imagine a class full of freshman didn't either.  So, we compromised.  We watched Speed instead, how is that a compromise you ask?  Well in Speed Keanu Reeves fiddles with something on a roof.  Made sense to us!  We *loved* having Sherry as a fill in!!! Anyway, in the picture John is describing the ins and outs of the Walther. . .
 Oh and we CAN'T forget Amy.  Amy is my 2nd cousin.  Amy was one of my best friends in school.  Amy's house is where I spent a lot of time!  I remember watching Amy get a whooping from her mommy once for not cleaning her room.  I remember laying on Amy's bed and making our own version of Cowboy Rap. . . Memories Memories
 Sherry decided Amy was to dangerous to shoot with (all 3 of us cousins so you can imagine the fun) so they sent her off with me.  YIKES.  But she ended up doing a great job!
 HUM, Amy was and will forever be older than me but I don't remember a time I ever got to teach her anything, it was always her doing the leading.  This is a change!
 This is Katie's pampered chef table.  If anyone needs anything she can hook you up (pampered chef wise that is).  She had a good looking table and is going to give the turnabout away!  WooHoo, oh wait, I didn't get my name in the drawing :(

That's it, all the pics I have from today. . . . . We also let each lady shoot 25 rounds out of a S&W 38 special and 25 out of Glock 9mm's.  I *think* the general consensus was that the revolver was the best.  (I think because I was instructing on the revolver and John on the semi-auto) hehehehe.  Turned out to be a great day.  I already have people asking when the next class will be and the answer is either when John builds me some shade on the range or when it cools off a bit. . . I went through 3 bottles of water and 1 big glass of iced water in 3 hours and needed more!
