We rented and shot a .38mm gun. I was VERY afraid, although going to the gun range was my idea. I want to get a handgun and even get my concealed weapons permit. I was not raised around guns, and it is going to take many more exposures for me to feel comforable with shooting. I shot two rounds (10 bullets), and HH shot the rest. Several of the men shooting said that I would be much more suited for a 380, which is a gun commonly used by women, and people who want to carry a concealed weapon.
Another thing I have to work on, once I got it locked on the target, I CLOSED MY EYES every single time I shot.....not a great idea.
