Good post, OP. Thanks for the info.

Of course, that's what they want...civil unrest.

The scary part of this is, there are a lot of inexperienced people purchasing firearms. Inexperienced or with no experience. Many of us older people grew up with guns and have lived in rural environments. Using a firearm properly is second nature for many of us. This is not so for newbies who are scared and purchasing their first sidearm or long gun. Firearms in the hands of untrained beginners is what I consider dangerous.

Just my personal opinion. Comments?

 Quoting: Nikola Tesla

I agree, a firearm in the hands of an inexperienced user can be a problem, like they can accidentally shoot themselves or someone else. From my experience, lots of gun shops are owned by retired military or law enforcement folks. More than once I have heard sales people telling newbies what range they can take a gun class at. I would like to think if someone is going to invest money in purchasing a firearm, they would also invest the time and money in learning how to use it.

If not...one less idiot to deal with. We can't save everyone! LOL
 Quoting: CowgirlK

A new gunowner, inexperienced with shooting, could come home and have one in the chamber (because they were careless) and then when cleaning it and inspecting it, really cause a tragedy. People are nervous, they hurry up and buy one, don't have a friend to mentor them.

They fail to use proper safety, walking around with their finger in the trigger area. Whip it around playing. I've seen everything because they don't get gunsafety in school. Believe it or not, all 4th graders used to get it in KY.

There's a lot of trained people reading these posts and making em. Folks help your friends. Ask them if they know HOW to clean their weapon. Offer to show them. Take them to the range. Let them fire a couple rounds without hearing protection, or fire at night using their nightsights so they get a feel for real conditions. Teaching them about discovering which is their dominant eye, because some of them while owning gun, have no idea about that principle, so naturally they're going to miss. They jerk the trigger and their shots are lower because no one explained how to squeeze it.

They have dopey Hollywood ideas about warning shots, because that's what they see on TV, and don't realize that a bad guy will rush them as they telegraph that clear motion pointing their gun up.

Mentor them. That's as important as anything. Then you have a second or third or fourth voice raising the alarm, because you spent time with them.
