    How many people out there have a spouse or a friend or children that you would like to see enjoy the shooting sport?
    I have a indoor range that I will be willing to open up to new shooters along with a class on safe gun handling the only cost to you will be for targets and 22 ammo it will take about 3 hours in time and will be basically 1 on 1 instruction.
    If anyone has tried to teach there spouse anything then you know how much fun that can be.
    send me a pm if interested

    That's a generous offer. I only wished I lived closer so I could take advantage of it.

    I would be interested in a day trip your way when the weather gets a bit better for travel.

    That is great oknow. I am hopeing to get someone with a brush hog to help me set up a 100 yrd range here. There is a huge natural backstop just need to get it cleared out. Then maybe have some like minded folks come out and shoot.

    I've enjoyed oknow's hospitality and indoor range on a few occasions, including my very first time shooting. My wife also fired her first shot at his range. For beginners he's very patient and easy going, explains well and focuses strongly on safety. My wife liked this a lot and it helped her get over the 'fear' of the unknown. Besides that, he's a nice guy.

    I can only recommend people to take him up on his offer.

    I've done something similar in another forum. Unfortunately, I don't have my own indoor range, but it's nice to see that I'm not the only one who thinks "Hey, maybe there's folks out there that want in but don't have anyone that's able to do that for them". It's good that you focus on safety so much too. I'd prefer someone be afraid to handle them in a safe manner than in an unsafe manner. Nothing's more dangerous than someone being careless with their fears.
