9-22-12: Another great class with 8 new graduates! Lots of questions and hands-on training, with four shooters (including 2 women). One of the women was a brand-new shooter and she tried the .32 Beretta, .380 Taurus, 9mm H&K Squeezecocker, .38 Special revolvers (2), .40-caliber Glock and .45 Kimber!
This is exactly why we feel Wolf River Concealed Carry LLC has the advantage over other area classes that only offer classroom training. This young woman had never shot a handgun before, but legally, she only needed to take the classroom portion. Fortunately she had the common sense to realize that she needed to try a few handguns and do some shooting before spending $300 or more on a handgun!
Would you buy a car without a test drive? Would you learn to drive a semi-truck without ever getting behind the wheel? I hope not!
Now she can have a better idea of which handguns fit her grip and which handguns she can shoot effectively (although she was small, she had no problem handling the recoil of a .45 ACP). Not everyone can handle that much recoil, but you won’t know until you shoot!
