Default Lucky Opportunity

I had the lucky opportunity today to take someone shooting who has NEVER shot a gun; not even a BB gun. I went over basic gun safety and how to properly and safely handle a firearm. Needless to say after a little timidness of the recoil and loud bang, she handled herself very well and shot pretty decently. Yes, I did say "SHE". We were able to shoot several caliber pistols, a shotgun and an AR. Her favorite turned out to be the AR, and at the end of the day, she said, I need to buy a gun. Glad that she was able to have some fun and learn a little bit about the shooting sport!

Allow me to score that for you:

1 point for taking a new shooter, and they had fun
1 bonus point for a female
1 more 'cause she wants a gun

An excellent haul! Plus you get three more points when she buys one.

Was she apprehensive about guns before?

And another for firearm safety. I can't tell you how many times I have seen some dumb people teaching other people...
