Please forgive me! Rereading my post, it does come across as a lot more harsh than I really intended, and a lot more personal than I ever meant. I was trying to share an experience I'd had recently, with a new shooter who'd been told (and believed) that a little gun would be easiest to shoot. The snark in my post truly was not directed at anyone in this thread, but at the nameless-other who'd set that particular person up for a bad experience on the range. (And truly? Most folks don't think that much about this stuff, so even that get chalked up to "didn't know any better, trying their best.")
Hope that makes sense, and we're good.
