I want to pass on kudos for Kris Wynne!

I'm a rookie when it comes to guns. In just one day of instruction with Kris Wynne (The Well Armed Woman Down East - Greenville, NC Chapter), from her emphasis on gun safety in the classroom instruction and her constant emphasis on gun safety at the range, to the basics of how to hold a handgun, to the stance and actual target practice, I have developed a comfort handling my own gun! I am excited to learn more from Kris so I will be able to defend myself and not become a victim!
