Well done. I'm with @titsonritz here, I don't regard guns as a cult at all.
That said, Welcome to Tool Time! We have the coolest tools. Use yours often and keep them maintained.

Congratulations... I love showing people who have never fired or handled a gun the ropes...

Biggest things I enforce, treat it like it's always loaded, always point it in a safe direction, etc...

The rule that usually sticks with people is "Booger hook off the bang switch till your ready to fire" since their first instinct is to put their finger on the trigger while handling....

I find it sad that the OP thinks ones God given right to protect, defend and feed ones self and family has been reduced to the staus of a cult in his mind.

My first big convert is/was a CNN watching movie making believing coworker. Took a year+ just to address bit by bit how what he sees in the movies and media is a bunch of BS....

Homeless people trying to invite themselves into his house (he is almost to retirement) was the final straw where he said he needed a firearm for his household...

Started off with me visiting him after seeing a friend, 2+hrs that went into the morning hours of instruction of finger off, clearing, chamber checks, handling etc before we went to a range...

On his 3rd time out shooting, I brought the evil ghost gun AR15 that shoots 30 bullets in half a second thingy (AR556). He thought he was going to get knocked of his feet and anticipated the recoil, didn't want to shoot it till I told him it was easier than the G2C he was shooting. He saw the tiny holes it made compared to the pistol in the splatter reactive targets, I showed him the actual bullet.... After shooting it, he basically called the AR a toy, tiny bullet, shot much like the Gamo Magnum air rifle I recommended to him for a large rodent issue...
