One of the things I enjoy most is taking a non-shooter to the range and introducing them to the joys of shooting. That first-time shooter grin, the gleam in the eyes, you can actually FEEL the other person's adrenaline rush. But that's not enough, that's like giving a baby a taste of chocolate and then leaving them in the candy aisle alone. You need to follow through. Make sure they get the training they need (if indeed they are as addicted as you think they are). Make sure you keep at 'em to get to a point of safety and comfort with their weapon of choice. You may not always be RIGHT THERE to walk them through it; but if you are, lucky you! There is such joy in birthing a new shooter and raising them up right. But if you can't be hands on, keep the lines of communication, support and encouragement open.
Tell me your stories.
