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.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil...

When in doubt, just ask yourself, "What would Theodore Roosevelt do?"

friends/family members. and they really had a good time.

and the fun times at the range.

Most people who have never held a rifle or pistol do not understand how much pleasure and excitement there is when you punch little holes in a paper target or send a few tin cans flying.
They get hooked real quick and it is then that a better understanding of weapons and the use of them in protecting themselves and their families can be learned.
Great job, it's always a good feeling to know you've passed on a skill and knowledge base to the curious and/or unknowing. I have some work to do myself, my mother WILL NOT even look at a handgun... lol
Thanks for doing your part to add to the CCW team...isn't it fun?

Very Sneaky! I like it. Way to go!!!
Life is too short, stop to smell the roses and don't let anyone take it away from you!
the more the merrier
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion
It is always a great thing to see how people who have never shot get so excited when they hit the target !!!
If each of us could get 5 new shooters, think of the difference it would make !!!

The second rule: "Bring enough gun"
