No pics, but I did get a video of her firing a single shot on my .44.

was this like a date or something?

Wow, did no one read the video description? She asked to shoot it after she was done putting about 300 rounds of .22 downrange. I helped her with her grip, coached her a bit on what the recoil was like, and she pulled the trigger. She wasn't pissed off or anything, just surprised.

Jesus Christ...

Still not cool.

You start with lighter loads and work up. There should be no surprise; the student should know exactly what to expect. "Watch one/do one/teach one." The objective of teaching is to foster success, and a feeling of accomplishment. If the student runs is surprised and runs away, the teacher failed. But, that's OK, you are as new to teaching as your sister is to shooting. You and she will both do better next time.

Quick course:

.22 ––> .380 ––> .38 Special ––> .357 Mag ...

Get the picture?

She was scared from the start. But hey, I have a little sister too.

WTF??? It's obvious that some people here do not grasp the concept of genetically related siblings.

As far as working her up caliber-wise, obviously that would have been ideal for learning purposes. But yes, sibling dynamics came into play.

And you know all about their family life? Milquetoast is exactly right when it comes to teaching someone how to shoot or letting someone shoot a really big gun. All it takes is one bad experience and you just turned someone into someone that doesn't like guns. In fact it can go beyond that. If you tell a girl you are going to teach her how to shoot and she sees a video like that, she will be scared to death before she ever pulls the trigger.

My female boss was at a family even last year and they were shooting skeet. They handed her a 12 guage, said it didn't kick much, gave her no instruction on how to hold the gun, and let her have at it. She left with a bruise on her shoulder and said she will probably never shoot again. So much for family dynamics. I'm sure all the men there got a kick out of it though.

This thread is not going where I thought it would go.

I can understand how that would turn off anyone to shooting. However, I can say, having known my sister for 18 years, that she was certainly not turned off to shooting. And in my case, I gave her about 3 minutes of solid instruction on how to manage large-caliber revolver recoil.
She texted me this morning and said she wanted to go shooting again, so I take that as a positive sign.

EDIT: Just texted her about the video, she said "tell those guys to shut up, if I hated it y did i walk away smiling?" I rest my case...

Great, you don't agree. Too bad it's his fucking sister and it doesn't matter what you think.

I swear, some of you guys just can't be happy unless you're bitching and moaning about something.

I'm going to go with: that's hilarious.

It's his sister. It's not his liberal-who-he-is-trying-to-convert date. She seemed to manage the recoil pretty well to be honest. She just freaked out a bit. Likely would have happened no matter how many "lesser" calibers she had shot before she shot that one. Not to mention the fact that she asked to shoot it, and I am sure he made it very clear that it would have a stouter recoil than what she had been shooting prior.

Anyhow, it's not like .44 is all that bad. Try .454 with 300grn softpoints. That would have been mean. This was just funny.

The recoil should always surpruise you. Just sayin.....

i hate when people give new shooters high recoil guns. it scares people away. even if she did ask you could just say next time.
Link Posted: 9/20/2009 12:16:03 PM EST
Only thing worse than giving a new shooter a .44mag is giving a new shooter a 44mag in an enclosed small space like that little indoor range.
Link Posted: 9/20/2009 12:23:10 PM EST
After reading the replies, I have a new opinion.
Hahaha, that was hilarious! Too bad she didn't hit her head when the muzzle came up. Better yet,
it would have been better if she let go of the gun and it went flying! Oh crap, this is comedy gold!

Does your sister make the same noises in bed?
Link Posted: 9/20/2009 12:32:59 PM EST
Dude, you did good. It looks to me like she had fun, was excited, and the smile on her face says she enjoyed it despite the shock.

No shit.

Let me nephew shoot my 45-70 when he was 15. Recoil scared the shit out of him.

Two months later he had one of his own. Now shoots a 300 weatherby mag.

Ooh, the recoil is going to hurt her... remove sand from the vag guys. Not everyone runs away scared. Wow.

Not cool at all. You can easily ruin someone wanting to shoot that way.

In all fairness, I did the same thing to my sister a long, long time ago. She has yet to ever fire another round since.
It was funny at the time, being young and stupid, but looking back it was a very immature and stupid thing to do and does nothing to help gain another on the pro side of the second amendment.

You all sayin that he "ruined her from shooting again" STFU. You have no idea. Do any of you know her? No you don't, he does. All of your little stories about how someone else shot a big gun and they don't want to shoot again ever. Oh well they fucked up and Cool Story Bro. Its funny to see all of you cry about somthing that you you have no clue about. She tried it and i saw a smile on her face. Do i think she will shoot a 44 again, beats me, but I didn't see anything that says to me that she doesn't want to shoot again.
