    Good advice. I tend to procrastinate.

    I took my wife to the range once several years ago in North Carolina. We started with .22 rifles and worked our way up to an AR15 and .357 magnum. At the range by the lodge (in SA) she took 2 practice shots with each of the two rifles she used (a suppressed .243 and a .308 Win.). That was the extent of her previous shooting experience.
    She shot that Eland at 110 meters with the .308 Win. It jumped, ran less than 20 meters and collapsed. I will post pics in the trip report (she'll have to choose which pics).

    And yes, we are already talking about our next trip. ;)

    "Beginners Luck?" Maybe not, at one time I had a Japanese family for a next door neighbor. The husband was an engineer on temporary assignment in the U.S. Like many Japanese he had a martial arts background. He had never fired a gun in his life. In less than two hours he was shooting "expert" scores with a handgun. His Black Belt training and hand /eye coordination obviously had something to do with it.

    Yes, I'm sure that is a factor. She is also a doctor with surgical experience. Very steady hands and excellent focus, as well as an ability to control the adrenaline. ;)

    Well, it's not done yet. I've been focusing on presentations to my students about the trip. I will do it as time allows...

    Gotta get the kids to 'merica for some gun training... We're looking at going back maybe 5 years or so from now.
