Bringing New Shooters to the Range

Before I take any new shooter to the Range I give them a Safety & Range Rules class at my house. I believe in this totally. I used to train Soldiers as a Sergeant in the Army on Range & Safety Procedures. I now am in the Federal Law Enforcement community & am still involved with firearms. I run them through my class then I take them to the range & walk them through the Range Rules again, proper Range Etiquette, run them through a monitored firing session. I've done this with young teenagers entering the Military & females interested in purchasing a firearm & have no experience with firearms at all.

You can't have fun if you're not being safe. IMHO
You've never had access to a half-gross of Cherry Bombs have you?

I am the weapon; my gun is a tool. It's regrettable that with some people those descriptors are reversed.

Talk loudly, be insulting, make them not use ear protectors, use complex hard kicking guns, and laugh at their groups.

Do just the opposite of the above and you will have a good outing with them.

In reality, just get some nice .22 pistols and rifles and let them have some fun (but follow the 4 safety rules!!)

And then buy them some soft drinks after the shooting session.
