Thanks for the input!
Unfortunately, neither of us have airsoft guns. I'll see how he grips and holds a stance before putting a single round in. I like the balloon idea, but I'm not sure the range would apreciate having to clean up the extra trash ( for the indoor one - I can clean it up at my regular range). I also like the blank target idea. Less self - induced pressure. I'd like to get him on the various calibers for one day since our schedules make meeting times kind of rare.
