Take a virgin shooting
 
One of the best ways we, as activists, can fight the anti gunners is to take someone shooting who has never fired a gun before.

I propose that in this thread, we post when we take a newbie shooting, what we had them shoot, and if their experience was a positive one that may make them a potential gun enthusiast.

Today I took my brother in law to the range and had him shoot an Xdm 9mm, a Springfield 1911. 45. And a LMT AR-15.

At the end of the day he suggested we bring his 2 sons with the next time we go.

Overall it was a great day even if it was a little cold and windy.

It's real hard trying to find someone in rural Texas that has never fired a gun.

Then find someone from urban Texas.

Urban Texas is too damn far away

Absolutely!

I try to do it whenever I have a chance!

I am trying very hard to get my daughter to go to the range with me.

I do not think my wife will not allow me to take a virgin to the range.:eek::p

I think this is a great idea, although we Arizonan's do love our guns, so I might not get opportunities too often ;)

I'm taking a guy from work to the range next week, he's never even held a firearm.

Of course the #1 lesson will be safety, I have a few .22s I'll start him on before I move up to the 9mm and so on.
