Took the wife shooting...
...looks like I'll have to build another AR and/or a 22LR conversion/dedicated upper because she taking much more of a liking to it.
We're still working on fundamentals but she's on paper!
On another note, we're looking for a canvas or nylon belt that doesn't have a buckle that digs into the abdomen. Do any of you ladies have any suggestions?
And now, pics:
I got an Ares belt as a gift and I love it, as far as gun belts go. I'd have never believed it was worth the money, but I guess I was wrong,
She's a very lucky woman to have her man appreciate her like you do.
Looks like you are pretty lucky too.
I get a kick out of the prayer rug for a shooting mat.
I like the pink ear muffs. They make the picture "pop." Glad you guys had fun. You said you have to build another rifle. Is that because she has now claimed yours.
Barbara: I'll have to take a look at Ares. Do you know which model it was?
backstrap: I am a very lucky man.
Max-Paul: That rug style was the only thing available at the AAFES Shopette when I was stationed in Central America. I brought it with me when we got stationed back here in the US. It has since turned into an inside joke, one of which being that I stole it from a Hadji while in Afghanistan, haha.
Pacodutaco: The earmuffs (and some pink safety glasses) were the first things I bought her so we can go shooting. At the time, the only ones I could find were from Packing in Pink. They seem like a good company with a good motive. Unfortunately, she doesn't like the safety glasses as much as my old, worn and scratched up Oakley Bottlecaps. Yes, I'll have to build another rifle if I have any desire to shoot an AR while we're both at the range.
Oakley makes some glasses in pink/white. I think they were M Frames but not sure. Probably can't get them From US Standard Issue, though. I need to renew my creds with them, now that I think about it.
where do we have a base or CDI in central america? I was on a base or as they liked to call it a CDI. Name of the place is Incirlik Turkey 81-83. Seen a lot of the locals with their prayer rugs rolled up come on base in the morning. So, familiar with those rugs. Surprised that they would be selling them in a AAFES shopette. I presume your USAF?
Yep, I'm AD USAF. SOUTHCOM has a base in Honduras. They did sell that rug in AAFES. It's kind of a "runner" rug and it came with a larger more square coffee table rug. I needed something to put on the floor in my hooch and that set was the last one left. I didn't even think about the similarity to a prayer rug until I deployed to Afghanistan.
