One silver lining in all this current attack on gun rights is that a lot of folks have become first time gun owners. I ran into a guy at the range who had purchased his first two firearms - a .22 rifle package deal (with scope) and an H&K P30. I took extra time to make him feel at ease and comfortable in, what was for him, a new environment! I explained range etiquette, answered questions, gave him some pointers - and encouragement!! Hopefully he went home feeling a little more knowledgeable and comfortable with his new purchases - AND realizing shooting is also fun and that us gun folks can be some pretty good folk!
Hope everyone here will be patient and helpful with new shooters - so that when the next battle comes, we will have even more numbers on our side - and MORE people knowledgeable enough to correct the misguided!!

I agree. We've always been 'pretty good folk'.....just don't threaten harm to me or mine or try to break into my house...seems fair.

I to meet a couple who just got there 1st firearms at the range the last time I went. They asked what are you shooting I told them a Taurus PT 740 he said we got some Taurus also the guy had a 24/7 45 and his wife had a PT 111 9mm I told them great choices these are good guns. I showed them how to field strip and how to clean them they shot about 200 rounds out of each with out cleaning and they still ran flawless.

Well done guys. Nothing like making new shooters feel welcome. They are usually a little anxious and can benefit from the help they get.

Way to be! I've also been helping a couple of people new to the gun world.. And these are ladies that I never thought were even remotely interested! I guess the attack on our Second Amendment rights and the things that are happening in our world these days has pushed them into self protection mode! Love it!
