TC Contender Super 14 in 30-30
So to recap yesterday's shooting adventure with the one who does not gun... Man, what an afternoon. I have not had my patience tested like that in a while. Of course, we went over the safety rules, and what does what with the firearm he would be shooting. He was a fish out of water. My main goal was to get him relaxed and comfortable. It took me about 30 minutes of adjusting, stopping, repositioning, explaining sight alignment / sight picture, and getting his breathing under control just to get him hitting paper at 10 feet. It was a little frustrating to say the least. After about 50 rounds of him sending down range everywhere but where he was "aiming", myself and another friend got him in the zone. I mentioned to him he could always use the pistol as a club or throw it and see if he could hit the target with it. Humor is sometimes a good injection to get folks to relax a little and enjoy things. He still needs to work. Like I said, this guy is new to gun culture and I think we got the hooks set in him pretty deep.
Care to guess which target I was on? The one on the right is where we finished with his last pistol shoot. Mother of God, that was a huge improvement from him not even hitting paper and digging the dirt out all around it.
Two folks I was shooting with got their cherries popped with an AR and also an SKS yesterday. We are making great strides.
He also got a hold of the TC Contender as well and I think he almost blew a wad in his tighty whiteys from that one. That pistol has some serious knock to it if you've ever fired one, especially in .30 caliber. It is always awesome to see the endorphin rush hit a new shooter and see them experience a new high that they've never felt before. So yeah, we brought another one over to the dark side and he's already hit me up this morning to go back once he returns from his trip. Score another one for the good guys. You lead heads have a great Friday.
