Joe Biden thinks AR-15's are terrible guns for women. "Buy a shotgun!"
My mom is small & not very strong. She has a surgically repaired left shoulder & that arm is still weak and a bad thumb on her shooting hand. She also hasn't shot a long gun since shooting once at a police range in 1997.
Today she put the first rounds through my new Midlength AR. (Upper is a brand new Daniel Defense)
Turns out I killed the batteries in the EOtech last night and the replacements were in my desk not my range bag, so we used iron sights.
Mom shot at I think 10 and 15 yards. Our range only goes out to 25 yards.
She shot a fist sized group as a total novice and having never shot an AR before. Hand her a double barreled shotgun & there's no way she's that effective.
Besides, she liked it because "it doesn't kick at all." Hand a small women whose new to guns a double barreled shotgun & I bet she won't find it too enjoyable.
My aunt showed up while I was showing mom how to clean everything and mom was explaining to her how these evil, scary guns they want banned are fun to shoot, have no recoil and make little holes. Oh, and "they work just like my little .22. You have to pull the trigger each time you want the gun to shoot"
My aunts words?
I wanna do that. When can we go?"
She also happens to be a pretty darn good shot with my PPQ. I put a 1 inch shoot NC on the bullseye. Mom put her First two rounds right through the center.
