My mom is awesome.

Here she is in the Arizona desert with my cousin Colleen, shooting a Ruger SR9.

Holy crap, watch that left hand thumb position!

(Or am I seeing that wrong?)

paul - I just went and checked the original photo & now I'm going to have to call my cousin and yell at her. (good thing my mom has teeny little hands, though - there's ample clearance between the top of her thumb and the slide - but still!)

Time for me to take Mom to the range.

That's awesome!

Really makes me wish my mother wasn't very gun-phobic.

Holy crap! That's where I live! (Arizona--I can't identify the shooting site.)

Ditto on the terrain! The Sonoran isn't what springs to mind when people think "desert."

That's awesome. My Mom was the Sheriff, she taught me how to shoot. I taught my daughter. One of us will teach my grand-daughter someday.
