Took my wife, who doesn't shoot much, to the range the other day and set her up at 50 yds with my 10/22 Butler Creek set up. After turning in a few 1 inch groups (I wasn't impressed) she put 5 rounds in .179 inches!!! I couldn't believe it! Five rounds, one hole, almost perfectly round.

Then she asks about going to a competition. Hell, I don't know if I should let her use my guns anymore!

Congrats, Heather!

Lesson here. Give your wife that gun and build yourself another one!
You have got it made from here on in if you do it properly!
Best of luck,

Hey Little E
Don't feel so bad, if MY wife went to the range with you it would happen all the time! LOL!
Seriously, Hank's right. Sounds to me like she's hooked, feed her habit!
Your gun collecting will suddenly become TWICE as expensive, but you won't have to grovel for guns anymore! :-)
*Hey, it worked for me!*

Your mind is your primary weapon.

That's my plan exactly. I'm going to get another 10/22 with a carbon fiber barrel. Of course I'll shoot it before she gets one and see what's better...

Actually it makes me proud and will probably give her the better of the two.
