Professional shooting competitor Julie Golob has a post up on her blog that talks about how to take a new shooter to the range. It includes a helpful list of DO and DON’T items that improve your safety and your ability to have fun with the newcomer.
Although enthusiasm is important (vital, even!) when introducing a new person to the joys of shooting, it’s equally important to get them off to a good start. That requires a commitment to safety and a certain amount of know-how to back up your enthusiasm. Go read Julie’s whole post, then step over to the the Cornered Cat article here for more ideas and a detailed plan of action.
