Got something nice from Santa!

Well, I wasn't expecting any firearms for Christmas, so I was very surprised by what I found under my tree...a Lady Nighthawk! My husband and daughter couldn't wait to get me out on the range to give it a try. I must say I was less than enthusiastic about a range trip over Christmas vacation until I started shooting it! Damn, I didn't take any target photos because all three of us were giving it a work out on the same targets but my first 2 shots were right next to each other and the next 2 went through the same holes! Put about 300 flawless rounds through it!

It was smooth, very low recoil, deadly accurate, and extremely fun to shoot. Next time I will take target photos. I'm very happy with it, wish I could EDC it. I will definitely be using it when I take my next Defensive Pistol class.

Merry Christmas!!! WOWSERS - that gets a drool towel all of it's own. What a beautiful gun. So thrilled for you and sounds like it shoots even better than it looks (and that's quite a feat). Congrats and great gifting from your hubby and daughter.
