My nephew is driving cross-country with a female friend ("She's *not* my girlfriend, Uncle Keith!!" [:D]) and made it here to visit for a few days. She'd never even *held* a firearm before and he wasn't about to complain about a little family outing. Started her with the basic safety rules and range etiquette, then went through the operation of revolvers, semi-autos and the pump gun. We worked on stance, grip, breathing and sight picture with some dry-firing in the basement, then headed into national forestland to work with "live iron". She spent about an hour with the Buckmark and S&W M18 .22s, then wanted to try "that big one there" - the G21 .45ACP. Not only was she safe and a quick study, she was a damned good shot. The .45 made her jump a bit but she was putting all of them in the black at about 10 yards by the time we were done. The 12 gauge scared the crap out of her but she put a few mag's worth just to get the feel. Turns out she was actually *afraid* of guns before today and now wants to go again before they hit the road again. Ballsy chick and now a novice shooter itching for her 21st birthday in a few months so she can buy a pistol. I'm feeling pretty good right now and not only because of the 4 stouts I knocked back with dinner. Another one for our side! Keith C.

Most excellent! We need to work on making converts among the uninformed. Time for me to go looking for a non-shooting friend!

I need to look for some cute newbies to take to my, I mean the range.

Nothing brings out the "dirty old man" reflex like having to, ahem, correct the shooting stance of a little 20-y-o, underdressed hottie on a 96-degree day. [naughty] And sorry - no scanner, no pics. My next project is a educating a friend of mine about the AWB. She's an exec at - I suppose I should be discrete - a major communication/publishing corporation and she has to attend some award-thingy hosted by the chick that organized the Million Misguided Moms. I don't think she'd kill her career by picking a verbal fight at the thing but she's got enough integrity that she might subtly counter the bullshit one-on-one with other attendees. Small victories add up. Wish me luck.

Well done! Good luck with the fight with the Devil and her demons.
