Had a friend wanting me to teach her how to shoot and handle firearms. So I helped her pick out a new gun a month or two ago deciding on a little Marlin .22 auto. We finally were able to get out. I realized on the drive out of town that I have never showed a female how to shoot. The ex-wife was never interested and neither is the current boss. So after going over the gun, safety stuff, posture, how to aim, and all the other stuff we were ready to shoot. After about 8 or 10 shots I realized there was something not right since she wasn't even close to the target. We found out that she is left eye dominant. So we switched to shooting left handed. Good lord, I don't ever want to be in a competition with her!! Well, she is hooked and the smile on her face was proof. She is already looking forward to getting back out there and also teaching both her daughters how to shoot. She was actually brought up to fear guns and everything about them. I must say, I got a lot of pleasure showing this to her and I can't wait for my daughters and future son to reach that age where I can do this for them.
I have decided to make a new goal: to teach 5 folks each year the fun of shooting, hunting or just the great outdoors!! It may be kids or adults but I am going to do my part it getting more folks to enjoy what most of us on here already know!!
