Its been a while since I have blogged about guns.  You know the evil that it is and all.

Today’s post won’t be confrontational at all but educational and best of all its free education.

In my short time being married I have learned a thing or two. The most important is… a husband should rarely try to teach a skill to his wife as it will only lead to trouble.  Firearms training is no different.  Its often frustrating to the man and even worse of an experience for the woman.  Luckily a national and local organization has created some free classes to learn about firearms and self defense with firearms.

The first class is a class for the absolute beginner no prior experience needed.  Learn from experts how to shoot safely.
