...good man! I don't think firearm training is complete without both rifle and handgun. Personally, I like to start out new shooters with a rifle, then progress to handguns. If their primary interest is pistol, we don't dwell on the long guns but I think it's a bit easier to learn how to use sights on a rifle. Also, it's usually easier for most beginners to hit a target with a rifle so I think it instills a bit of confidence from the beginning. Of course, most I've introduced to shooting were young kids.
