Tomorrow, Sunday, I'm going to help a couple get acquainted with handguns before they go for their ccw class.
I'LL go over safety, types of guns, and just generally get them used to handling pistols before they show up to class.
I've done this for quite a few folks and have had very good results (every single one has passed the course).
I don't claim to be any kind of instructor and always tell my folks to listen to the class instructors for all technical and legal info. I just try to give them a chance to handle different types of firearms and how to operate them before showing up at the range.
Looking forward to a good Sunday.
