Why I Teach

Today reminded me why I like to teach shooting classes. We had two basic level intro classes back to back. 50/50 mix of men and women, more than 50% had never shot before. People were learning about shooting and paying attention to the details. Good trigger control and sight alignment. Basically drilling the center out of the targets for the most part. some of them got a bit excited and after a couple shots started jerking the trigger. After stopping them and taking a breather they went right back to drilling the center of the target. So, the students really had the skills developing and just needed to focus and they were doing great. LOTS of big smiles and happy new shooters. Great big wonderful day at the range.

  1. One thing about today's classes was the diversity of the people. I know "those on the outside" want to classify all gun owners as knuckle-dragging middle-aged white male Euro-descendant rednecks. If these classes could be a microcosm for the whole of the gun community, then the stereotype is most inaccurate.

    Yes, today was a good day.
