nice toys Tony :P
I think guns are cool. they just scare the heck out of me, knowing how dangerous they can be. A friend keep telling me that's because I don't know how to use them and encourages me go to try shooting. I'm going to just stick to archery for now hehe but yeah I do like guns and holding it, used to like shooting with a bb gun and later the air guns. they didnt feel good because they were plastic, I enjoy holding the bb gun more.
My wife was afraid of them as well. I signed her up for gun safety training at a local range which covered a lot from simple things like operations, grip, aim, and got into more complex legal aspects as well. It was a 12 hour course spread out over 4 sessions. At each session we also had a hour of instructed range training. Went to the range about once a week for over a year and she got quite proficient with her Glock. The uncomfortableness went away pretty much after the first session in the range when she realized that they are really no more dangerous than a car or using a table saw, or angle grinder. She went on to get he concealed carry permit and I'm assuming that she is carrying pretty much all the time.
