    Chinese kids

    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.

    Thumbs up

    That is great. You gave them something to proudly talk about for a long time. I'm sure they will always remember that.

    Now that is cool. Hope you do get a chance to go one more time before they leave.

    You know they will talk about that experience for a long time to come.

    Probably talking about American Cowboys!

    They may be trained how to use an SKS or an AKM back home if they make it to University. Most of the Chinese engineers I work with, even some of the ones in their 20's can describe the operation of the AK series rifles. One of them I have worked with for almost 8 years now described the training he had while at University...

    I wonder if this counts as "giving aid and comfort (and training) to the enemy"!

    No, seriously, learning is almost always a positive thing.
