Stacy, welcome to TFL.
If you haven't done so already, you (and your husband
) should check out The Cornered Cat
. It's a site devoted to women shooters, and you'll find a ton of info on it -- advice about shooting stances, and answers to questions you haven't even thought of yet. It's run by our own pax
, who moderates the Tactics and Training forum and is in the business of teaching women to shoot.
