Fairfax, VA — ( — We first met Jackie Ducci as she began her fireams journey earlier this season in Episode 2, “Revolver Evolution.” Guided by the professional instruction of Team Smith & Wesson captain Julie Golob, and accompanied by her mother and longtime shooter, Donna, Jackie enthusiastically took her first shot—but that was just the beginning. In this special edition of Love at First Shot, we find out how her shooting story unfolded in After the First Shot: “Jackie Got Her Gun.”

Determined to take charge of her own safety, Jackie started her path to gun ownership for personal protection purposes. Although the process of obtaining a firearm permit in her home state of Connecticut was long and arduous, for her it was totally worth it in the end. With the help of a knowledgeable sales associate, Jackie found the perfect revolver, the Smith & Wesson Model 66. Upon becoming a gun owner, she discovered that shooting is a fun and exciting recreational activity that she can enjoy with family and friends. Jackie has even passed the torch to another first-time shooter, friend and former teacher, Tabitha.

The only exception to that is an individual may have (though EXTREMELY RARE) two sets of chromosomes IF they were born a twin, or if a twin was absorbed by the fetal body prior to birth. Then they may (though rarely) have TWO sets of chromosomes (XX and… Read more »
