    It was really a fun day I had to put a few rounds down range because... well I was at a gun range IN a lane with guns. he's really a quick study. It might be because he didn't want to screw up right there in front of his FIL, but I was impressed with his skill and etiquette. His ability to aim properly and put new information into practice was comforting to see. He does have a FPS (first person shooter)gamer background so that would explain his choice for headshots to start off.

    many times its easier to teach a complete newbie than a somewhat experienced shooter that has already formed so many bad faults!
    The Newbie is usually a bit apprehensive of what they do with a gun, while inexperienced/ experienced shooter can be set in their ways and even dangerous in what they DON'T Know!

    So, you fellers think you can insure that proper language is used?

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    Never neglect to inform your SIL that you have a shotgun and a shovel and know how to use both.

    It makes for peace and harmony...

    It's a very good idea, methinks, to spend time with the new sons- or daughters-in-law if you have shooters in the family.
    We ORDERED our sons to marry ONLY gun-savvy ladies, or spend all time necessary teaching them.
    They succeeded.
    Two of the ladies are hunters and one gets her deer every year. The other is busy raising our grandsons.
    One asked for a specific gun for their wedding anniversary. We got it for her: A Desert Eagle .50AE! She's a former fashion model so when she lines up at the ranges she has a lot of attention, and NOT on the gun.
    I wanted to upload a slo-mo video of her shooting a full-auto Thompson. Awesome concentration and muzzle control.

    Third one is more reluctant, but the nature of her employment has rekindled her interest in self-defense shooting.

    Any time that you can light that spark in safe responsible gun ownership and usage, it needs to be lit and gently fanned. For me, it was more a case of knowing I won't live forever and someone's going to have to take that responsibility of protecting her and the home. He comes from a good family and they don't shy away from firearms so he may not have had that full on love of firearms, but more of a dormant desire. I'm just lightly fanning that desire so it remains burning in his heart. My daughter on the other hand is more a crossbow/archery kinda gal. I figure "Hey, at least it's a shooting sport".
