My wife took me shopping today. In defense, I drove and made sure we wound up at the new sporting goods store. While there, she made friends with a young woman that wants to buy her first gun, get her carry permit, and learn to shoot.
Simple? Maybe. As an employee, the store will comp the class for her carry permit. It is not my call, but I believe that is a good move. She is confused about how to pick out the correct gun. Realistic! We are now 2 for 2! She works in a gun store. She is cute, and single. SOMEBODY will show her all the firearms she wants to look at. The major stumbling block I saw was that everyone she knows wants to teach her. If she can find good instruction, the shooting world will gain.
We all run into these people every day. we must be careful to present a welcoming face.
