On The Range #17: New Shooter

A friend from out of town came and spent a long weekend with me. She wanted to go shooting. She said she'd been shooting before but I got the impression it was the type of shooting where some guy just sticks a big gun in her hands and stands back and laughs.

I went through all the safety stuff, emphasizing the Four Rules. After that we went outside and let her go at it. We had a lot of fun.

I'm not the best teacher, and I'll be the first to admit it, but I think I instilled some fundamentals and I KNOW she had a good time. She was shooting pretty damned well too, and I think with some more practice and some formal training she could be a great shooter.
