I took my girl out shooting for her first time and we decided to rent her a smaller gun (mines a forty)[(she's 4'9'')]. She was placing all the shots in vital zones. I tried the gun out and I now want one, made me feel like James Bond. I'm going to have her get her CPL and carry one of these fine pieces. After she she got used to shooting a bit I let her squeeze off ten rounds of .40 and it almost knocked her on her tush the first shot. She still shot it well, so it tells me the Bursa is a good learning tool.
