Another shooter joins the ranks

Today, my friends and I taught a new shooter. Vlad did most of the coaching. Under his expert guidance, Jackie went from never having shot pistol before to hitting bowling pins with a suppressed Walther P22 at 25 yards. She then shot a suppressed Glock G17.

She also shot integrally suppressed 10-22 (with the awesome Timney trigger courtesy of my friend Marshall) and a suppressed Keltec SU22. Clays within a hundred yards were severely menaced. At that point, Vlad fired a couple of magazines through his Glock 35 and Jackie’s senses reeled. That was so noisy!

She did shoot an AR15 and an AK74 clone under the direction of a couple of Army snipers. We ran out of daylight after that. Our trainee kept up excellent safety practices. Up until today, her whole experience with guns was assembly/disassembly of an AK47 in high school and a few shots fired in college.Video and photos coming soon.

    And I thought AK47/AKM assemby/disassembly was purely Soviet school sport 😉

    Add one thing to my list of things I’d like to do in Tennessee. Besides the two I mentioned, I want to help break in a new shooter. I occasionally put an offer on Craigslist to do so, but so far zero takers.

    Taking somebody shooting for their first time does not equal “another shooter joins the ranks” (or even “another shooter”).

      Not her first time, just the first time in the US. And she has become a shooter to the extent that US law permit exchange students to do so.
