I'm looking for training and instructor recommendations for a new shooter. Basically I've never fired a firearm and I think I'm pretty accurate when I say I've never even touched one. Yet. The reason is that I'm from Europe, and from a country that has very limited legal private gun ownership possibilities. Interestingly enough, more and more violent crime there involves firearms, but the general consensus appears to be that rules should be even more strict now. The "outlaw guns, so only outlaws will have guns" seems highly appropriate. But I digress. Having been in the US for a few years and having received my permanent residency status (the "green card"), the US is my new home and I am now allowed to own guns. Plus I signed up here, so I have a more than average interest. Anyway, now that you know the background, this newbie needs some good recommendations! I'm mostly concerned with safety first, and then just learn the basics and some proper shooting techniques (as I'm highly capable of teaching myself the wrong ways ). Any info, help or hints are welcome! Anywhere in the Vancouver, Camas or Washougal area would probably be easiest, as I live in Camas. Thanks in advance for all the help!
