I for one appreciate the perspective and attitude you bring.
Wow! Great stuff!!
Yes, I think we all dread the consequences of being the one that’s alive! However those consequences would have to be worth the uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating results of being the one who’s not dead.
I think there’s lots of great, constitutional training out there it just has to be sought out. I also think the training from the USCCA and NRA are good for beginners. EXTRA careful and even a little nervous is good for beginners. I’m thankful for them. They got me in the door of this awesome community of firearms. It wasn’t long before realizing it wasn’t for real life real world but for introducing training into lives. That’s a great thing.
Thank you. That make me want to keep writing.
Thank you. I didn’t expect this!
Man, we’re singing the same song! I started with the NRA Jr program shooting small bore four position at eight. Things have changed pretty drastically in the 60 years since! I’ve only recently joined USCCA. The training I’ve done with them so far has been very good and I enjoy it since I’m home bound and the training staves of boredom very well.
If you’re the mentor for the Noob, it’s your job to watch every move, AFTER pounding the FOUR RULES into their head (a rubber mallet works well (G)). I find mentoring to be very gratifying. I recently convinced my podiatrist to go with me. That’s one of my better “victories.”
I think shooting and shooting competition is totally beneficial to any who do with with any regularity. Shooting requires a high level of concentration and discipline, things that many kids don’t get in the current environment. Better, from my perspective, since it’s what happened to me, is that you create a lifelong passion that never passes!
