    I do NOT want this woman in my next handgun training class!

    Dumbass With Big Gun!.

    Why do these people always seem to have some sort of ridiculous grin on their faces?

    You know what really went wrong here, though? Obviously the pistol wasn't custom-fitted to the shooter's hands. Silly mistake! A better set of grips could have easily prevented this highly dangerous fiasco from taking place. ;)

    What went WRONG, here... is simple, and easy to understand... Some fool of a Male Friend, gave this lady a FireArm, that was way outside her handling capability... As a Joke, well maybe, but it is just plain STUPID, TO DO SUCH A THING... In. The first place, and if I saw someone intending to do such a thing, they would be picking themselves up off the Ground... because they deserved it.... Been there, seen that, and Done that, as well...

    That's no grin, that's a wince. She knows she's about to get smacked. And, a custom grip would do that poor girl no good at all.

    I got the impression that the custom grip remark was tongue in cheek and in reference to another thread in which the relative merits of custom fit vs non custom fit were being discussed with calm voices, reasoned, thoughtful dialog and the utmost respect for the opinions of others all around.

    Local gun shop has had several big bore revolvers for sale that had been owned by Clint Eastwood fans and they usually come with an almost full box of ammo. It really helps to start smaller people out with a 22 etc and let them get enthused about shooting, rather than starting them out with way too much gun and beating and scaring the he** out of them. A lot of women seem to be better at shooting then men and usually will take advise on improving their gun handling. A lot of the Rambo crowd seem to think they know it all and their actions made it necessary to put closed circuit cameras on the local range. Tried talking to them and then banned them

    I have never understood the humor in giving a female too much firearm... it is just NOT funny...

    there is one vid where the girl is shooting a rifle and you can tell she's gonna get scope eye and the guys moves up behind her and pretty much braces her in such a way it is guaranteed she will get injured...

    why? this person or someone like her could be a potential backup for you or someone IF you train em proper...

    abusing em only creates problems... and they may find themselves later getting terrible things done to em...

    that could have been prevented if they were armed but some dip created so much fear...they never touched another...

    pure stupid IMHO...

    Saw that. The stupid lout was trying to keep her from falling on her ass. The worst part is that he had no clue what would happen when he "helped."

    Guys, who put anybody behind any firearm while knowing they really can't handle the recoil of such a heavy kicking firearm, need to tied to a tree and horse whipped in public.
