How many have you introduced to guns?

I just beat them until they get a gun to try and stop the beatings. But your way could probably work as well. Tongue

I'm gonna say: a bunch. Maybe 13 to 20 people. After the Pulse nightclub shooting, a couple of friends in the LGTBQ community approached me about learning to shoot, so I did what I could, and helped some shop for their first gun. I'm helping a young black woman who works at a local convenience store learn to shoot, and I'm going with her Saturday to pick out a gun.

Indirectly I think I have another to add. My closest friend's wife has asked him to take her to the gun range. She has always been afraid of guns. I may be going with them so she can shoot my handguns as he only has long guns. Should be a good next few months for me, my wife and another close friend are both going gun shopping with my help.

Probably only half a dozen, but my "introductions" start with recommending folks get their LTCF, even if they don't currently own a gun.

Everyone I've done so with has eventually asked to go along to the range with me, and have all purchased their own firearms. 

AFAIK, none of them carry all the time (yet), but I stress that licensing, owning, etc. is all a personal choice, and if I can get them from nothing to a licensed owner, I'm a happy camper. From there, carrying at all, or simply more often can be done with a simple decision to do so.

I am usually satisfied with just getting people to see guns as more of a tool than something "bad". That at least opens the door for further acceptance.

I hope you always remind them that "No one was killed with all the shooting they did?" For those idiots who say guns were designed only to kill.  I look over my collections and not a one of them have done what they say they were deigned for.

Two out of three of my carry guns were bought used so I can't guarantee that to be true for mine.

JK. I always use the line about my guns being broken....

I just added 9 from the women's network at my wife's work over the weekend.  They had a ton of fun.
It never ceases to amaze me how people who have never shot anything before are complete naturals.
