Go read this. The whole thing.
Though my experience does not mirror hers, both the Cornered Cat and Lima's youtube channel were some of the first things I came across when I was an ignorant, neophyte gun owner. They were a tremendous help to me. I'm glad to see that those two ladies helped this woman turn a traumatic experience into something positive.
If even one person has read something here that has had a positive impact on their life and helped them grow and move in the right direction, then it's all worth it. Keep in mind that when you blog you might be more of a positive influence than you know.
That's one of the greatest things about the gunnie community and the online gunblogging community in particular. They are incredibly accommodating, respectful, kind, and willing to help. Hell, you can go to a blogshoot, shake hands with someone you've never met, and they'll graciously sit you down behind one of their rifles and help you out when you ask. My experience was the rule, not the exception.
Go into her archives and read too. The experiences of a neophyte gunnie are always an interesting read, and her blog does not disappoint.
