    Mrs. Cableguy tried trap for the first time last week, instead of staying in the truck doing Sudoku puzzles. A fellow shooter's (My mentor's) wife conned her into giving Trap a try. She hasn't picked up a shotgun in twenty years. The last time was a skeet range with a 28ga. Last week she gave it a try. She was ambivalent to say the least. This weekend, she shot again. Thanks to the patience of her coach (not me!) and probably a really good gun fit, she shot a 14! Her second round of Trap ever! Needless to say, I'm very proud of her. The bad news is, it's gonna cost me another shotgun. Money well spent in my opinion. The good news, she can never complain about my ammo purchases again!

    It's hard to believe that 5 years ago, she was told that she'd never walk again. Two years ago she was still in a wheel chair. Today, she told me that a 12ga. Cynergy was 'The perfect fit'. I am very proud. Please help me welcome a new shooter to the sport.

    A Great Big Welcome, Mrs. Cableguy! You sound like a remarkable lady.

    Mrs. 22hornet started shooting with me last year, and it's been a ball. My shooting budget went way up, but worth every penny.

    Welcome again.

    Congratulations!!!! Welcome to the sport. It's addicting...even more so than Sudoku. And it's really fun to shoot as a couple!

    You are welcome to shoot here with the rest of us in Maryland and Pennsylvania any time.
