Went shooting today and had a 4 friends along. A group from my S2000 car club went to the range to ha e some fun. 2 of the people had only shot once or twice before, and one of the ladies, didn't like shooting. Today she shot my wife's U22 Neos and now wants a gun. We had 6 different guns, Glock 19, Sig P250, Beretta U22, Walter P22, CZ 75 p-07, and a HK USP 40.

Had a good time and it was something to watch someone get hooked on shooting. I enjoyed shooting the CZ75, nice feel and trigger pull.

Very nice. I always offer to take people shooting who haven't been, or talk about how bad guns are etc. Generally, they don't take me up on the offer but every once in awhile they do, and they always convert. :)

Yep. I was just discussing with a good friend yesterday about getting NRA Basic Pistol instructor. Not to make money but simply to have a Nationally recognized "credential" for people who want to learn. I train people for a living, love guns and gun safety so I think I'd be good at it.

It's kind of funny, the girl who went that didn't like shooting comes from a family who has guns. I think the problem was that she has only shot a .45 and and doesn't like the sound. After shooting my wife U22, she offered to buy it and my wife is like "He!! No, tell her to get her own". LOL

This is one of the reasons I bought a suppressor for my .22s. If I'm working with a new shooter, I will start them off with my Ruger 22/45, with the suppressor on it which means no recoil and almost no sound. That allows them to focus on safety, and eases the nerves for their first time. I gradually move them up in calibers from there.

Yes sir, that was covered by the range management and me, before we went into the range to shoot.
