Had an interesting time tonight. I took my two Chinese exchange students out shooting. They are 12 and 13 year old boys.
From what I hear, in China, the only guns are in the Police and military, so some will never have opportunity to handle a gun, not to mention shoot.
They were very nervous at first, but seemed to relax a little. I was probably more nervous than them, as the language barrier didn't allow me to give a proper safety briefing. I did make them understand to never muzzle flag anyone at all. I kept telling them to only point to the sky or the hill, never turn, never wave, etc.
One of them (the loudmouth) was kinda scared, but the other one, really picked it up. From what I could teach him, he hit the target pretty much every time. Not bad, I guess for a first timer.
I hope I didn't just train China's future best sniper, lol. One more week here, then they travel and go home. Perhaps we will take another trip out.
