Sorry, no pictures, but it was just a bunch of guys so who cares. :neener: Recently got to take two car-fuls of new shooters to the range, one of whom is a California resident who now has a serious want for an AK. Hopefully he'll get out and vote now that he sees how rediculous the laws are.

A few notes:

1. New shooters (heck, ALL shooters!) love .22s.
2. New shooters also love 7.62x39. The AK is always a big hit, but only marginally more than the SKS.
3. Trap shooting never gets old, especially when you whoop the new shooter's butts at it. :evil: Everyone loves trap shooting.
4. M38 Mosins invariably leave a grin and a bruise.
5. Once the laws and regulations are explained to them, new shooters always say something along the lines of "That's bull***!" (Especially Mr. California!)

New shooters also love 7.62x39. The AK is always a big hit, but only marginally more than the SKS. A definite vote for that one! My girlfriend and her parents have become rather accurate with their SKS (inlcuding her mother who's blind in one eye and having vision loss in the other).

I just made a new friend who lives near me and am going to soon take her to the range with me to learn gun safety and how to shoot. I'll probably start her off with my .38 snubbie (easy to handle and shoot), and if she wants to take a stab at firing a few rounds out of the .45 ACP, it's all good.

When I told her I CCW daily, she started to ask a lot of questions and admitted she really didn't know much about guns at all. I pointed her to both the HCI parody site (http://www.handguncontrolinc.com) as well as Oleg's Site (http://www.a-human-right.com). After knowing the facts, it's gotten her VERY interested in firearms and 2A! :)

By the way Oleg, she absolutely LOVES your posters!

You are doing the right thing!! I am constantly "sharing the good word" with any who will listen..and the "good word" is always followed with an offer to take a trip to the range. Nothing helps lift the irrational fear of firearms like a safe, educational day at the range.

Action does speak louder than words. We can bluster all we want but, this is the way the RKBA is solidified!
