    Took a female friend out shooting yesterday.It was the first time she'd ever held a gun.She liked shooting the scoped 22 rifle but didn't care too much for the 380 pistol.She kept hitting high with the open sights but did good with the laser.She's also wanting us too teach her how to fish,might make an outdoors person out of her yet [​IMG] [​IMG] .

    Pass that knowledge along! Maybe she'd like a .22 pistol better?

    That's what she's wanting to get as her first gun,then maybe work up to something bigger later.

    Gotta start somewhere...good for you for your encouragement...if we ALL did that, we would have MILLIONS of new gun supporters...we may need them sooner than we ever thought.

    Fishing is the easy part, wait till she gets to the Scaling and gutting part.

    Find her a good trout stream to fish. Nothing boring about fishing a trout stream. :)

    Taking new shooters out is always fun, especially kids.
