Last weekend, I had the opportunity to take a friend (who had only fired a gun once in his life) to the range. This is the first time I've been able to do something like this, and it was actually a lot of fun; we went over gun safety beforehand, spent some time working with my G17, G21, G26, and Bersa .380, and I had him shooting some nice tight little groups before the day was done.
I talked to him earlier this week, and he told me he had just put a G23 on layaway, and is looking into getting his carry permit.
I'm planning on taking another friend (who has never held a gun before) to the range in a few weeks. As someone who goes through their days pretty much surrounded by anti-gun (or pro-gun, anti-carry) people, I feel like I'm finally doing something to change it.
