    I agree.....just last weekend I got my grandson started, he's 5 and I gave him a BB gun. He loved it, can't wait till next time he was sooooo excited.

    I think ive trained a small army so far this year alone. My goal is to make sure responsible gunowners acquire the knowledge and skill they need to hit thier mark consistently and accurately. And my favorite students are new to shooting young ladies. they are always the best listeners and are very quick to master thier new skill.

    sometimes women will ask questions but the guys don't want to look dumb so they don't ask-won't learn if u don't ask

    Oh yeah, in WWII the best Russian snipers were women. Steady hands and great eyes I guess.

    Exactly right Beth. The biggest thing i fight with these days are the young fellers that play alot of video games. They always try to shoot like the game characters. I had one guy that had Solid Snake down to a T. Problem is the AK he bought had a little more recoil than he could control and his stance was all wrong.

    Beth, I remember when you first came around TFF I was just new here myself and you asked a ton of questions because you were serious about safety and not just pulling the trigger but also wanting to know why things happened and what makes them happen. You have surpassed me by many many posts as I am more of a reader then a poster. But I know you took a lot of knowledge in during this short period. Pass on to your friend what youve learned and maybe she will one day pass it on to someone and the circle of shooters and gun owners continues to strengthen! Enjoy your time out with your friend have fun and be safe! Yes, Pictures are a must.... You started it lol. Have fun!

    Well done, Beth. Pictures, of course; and as suggested, give her the target; maybe some empty brass that she shot?

    Glad she's looking forward to it. Sounds like both of you are excited.

    Both of you enjoy the day. Make it safe.
