Shot my Kimber at the range again Friday evening. 100 rounds of Remington green box. I had 2 FTF where the slide locked open when the mag wasn't empty. Not worried as my round count is only 200 total thus far. We also put 100 rounds through my wife's new P938 sports 13 that we just picked up at the FFL earlier that day. I put 50 through the XDs and the wife put another 100 through her XDm 9. We were there to practice for our CCW qualifying we had today. We had some fun though. She had taken a break from shooting and was out in the shop. She came back in with a battleship target planning to kick my ass with her XDm. I used my Kimber and turned the tables on her! :D They had a ladies only intro to firearms class last night that was going on there as well. There were 5 ladies and most had never shot a gun period or handgun. They started out with a .22 and shot a few other revolvers and semi-autos. At the end of the night they get a chance to fire 1 shot from a 500 S&W magnum. My wife had never shot a revolver nor anything of that caliber. She wasn't part of the class but we frequent the range often and they offered us 1 shot for $5 and she wanted to do it. We both took our 1 shot and now she can cross that off her list! :D

Sounds like fun. The family that shoots together stays together. Or something like that.

She thought it was awesome but has no interest in doing so again or owning such a thing. She said "That was like a bomb going off in my hand!" I actually took a video on her iPhone and she did the same of me. I almost hit the X and she was just 3/4" above me and a hair to the right. I am kicking myself for not buying a .45/70 BFR made by Magnum Research a few months back when it was on our local Armslist. My brother used to be a gunsmith there so I had the opportunity to shoot most of their firearms they made at the time. I liked the .45/70 and was surprised that I did but there was something about it that was so cool and when you fired it all the other people would step back from their lanes and look over with a WTF was that face.:D

Thats a good outing glad you some time with the little woman,I've always wanted to fire one of those 500 mag. bet it has a lot of kick.
The long barrel and the heavy weight make it manageable but you definitely wanted a good two handed grip on it before pulling the trigger! I much preferred it to the Desert Eagle in .50 AE which is the only other .50 cal I've shot before. That sucker would roll my wrists when I started getting tired and eject casings into my forehead. A few mags at a time was enough for me with that!

I got kicked by a horse once and have no interest in shooting that big gun.I guess the correlation goes hand n hoof...{p.s.Gigi just called me a chicken sh**}
I think getting kicked by a horse would be milder! I want to see pictures of miss tough girl shooting the 500, she'll change her tune!
