I'm 40 years old and I was raised to respect my elders so I try my best to be patient and let them finish thier stories about thier glory days and whatever else they want to talk about. Sometimes I'll even ask them if they wana shoot and compare targets. 10 more yrs ill be and old dude. some might consider me old now.
Agreed. I was raised the same way. When given advice I usually try it to see if it works better for me. I sometimes even ask them about their shooting experiences. Because I like to hear stories, where I may learn something or get a good laugh (if that's what they intended).
I have been shooting for little over a year now. And when I have friends come with me that haven't shot before. I give them multiple ways to aim, shoot, load weapon, or clear the gun. That I have learned from experienced shooters or read on the Internet, gun forums, ect. Because the way I do may not work as well for others.
I was merely wondering what is behind their thought process? Or maybe it's just because they are the stubborn type of person that is set in their ways.
