My brother is coming in from California in a few weeks and he is bringing some friends with him. NONE of his friends have ever shot a gun and are really wanting to, and I definately plan on letting them as it has changed views towards them (guns) in the past when I have let non shooters shoot. I have grown up around guns and safety is second nature to me, however I am usually correcting someone after they have the gun in their hands and not before. What are some "pointers" that I can give to them before handing them a gun? Like I said it is natural to me, and I go over general safe handling before I hand a gun to a non shooter, but it seems like there is always something that I have forgotten. So what I am asking is: What would a range officer or firearms instructor go over with them BEFORE allowing them to fire? I will not hand a loaded firearm over until we have gone over the rules of safe handling. I just dont want to miss anything this time as there will several people, but only one shooting at a time. I have the "rules" listed in the book that comes with guns, what I am looking for is other unmentioned rules.
