taught a few Germans what freedom is like
Had 2 Germans and a Swiss come down to the range today.
Having come from socialist countries:gah:, neither of the germans had ever seen a gun and the swiss had never shot a pistol.
They all had tons of fun. One of the germans had trouble getting how the whole thing worked at first (especially since there were multiple misfires), but he improved greatly. The other german did amazing. his groups right off the bat on the .22 were amazing. I let him try my 9mm and his first 3 shots were in the black, next 2 not far from. He also tried my friends full size 1911 which worked a little better for him since he had bigger hands than me. overall he did very well and just loved it.
Didnt get to see much of how the swiss did, but it looked like he had fun. It was nice that we had a good initial connection between us (i lived in germany for a year and speak german just find) to break the ice.
Overall they all had tons of fun and realized just how great of a freedom it is to be able to have guns here in the US. :hand10:
(haha. i just noticed that the :bier: smiley is : bier : - the german spelling of beer.)
