As a surprise, I took Jenn to an NRA 1st Steps Pistol class today, conveniently right around the corner from where we live. We had gone trap shooting recently and Jennifer had purchased a Living Social deal at a local range for time on their shooting range, so why not treat her to some organized training.
It’s been a long time since I handled a pistol, and I’ve never attended a handgun-specific safety and training course, so this was new for me as well. I used to own a Glock 17 but last night I fired a Springfield XDM, a Berretta 9mm of some variety, a Glock 21, and a .22 revolver.
It was fun, and we learned a lot. More practice may be in the offing.
