Forget the range. The range I was a member at only allowed 1 guest, family member. So I started shooting the power lines that are just past the range. Great berms, we can set up for handgun or rifle, no idiots to deal with.
My wife finally went w/ us. Started her off w/ my youngests M69 .22 trainer. She did great at 25 and 50 yards w/ open sights. Figured out she is left eye dominate, so she shoots a rifle lefty. She also liked my middle sons Winchester 190 .22. Boys did great, everyone had fun. No bench, no crutch.
