There is a world of difference between someone being truly mentally ill and the views described here.

Saying someone who doesn't want to do the gun thing needs professional help is as sensible as antigunners saying that those who do the gun thing need professional help.

If she's up to it, start with NRA Home Firearms Safety (no shooting occurs in the class), followed by NRA Basic Pistol, and then any two to four day defensive handgun course.

Make her understand that pistol shooting is also a sport by shooting at paper or reactive target's, not just hunting or using weapons for killing humans or animals.

Google: Zen Pistol Shooting

Shooting Sport --- The Dhamma Encyclopedia

You know, I'm uncomfortable with someone discussing the psychological difficulties of another real person on an open forum.

Do you have permission to do such? Did the OP tell her that her 'problems' would be made public?

I have no trouble discussing the best teaching method but an original poster's psychological profiling of someone else rubs my professional mind the wrong way.

We are not a counseling center.

Thus, Closed.
