Thank you for following along with me as this journey continues.

I love teaching!

I had the chance to introduce a very pleasant young man to shooting today. He was a natural, shot extremely well, and that left us time to play a little more, speed drills and turning targets, different pistols. What made it so much fun for me was watching his skill develop and the huge smile.  By the time we were finished, my smile was as big as his.

We need more women teaching, think about sharing the joy and fun with someone else.  It is fun and rewarding.
