New Convert.

Meet my little brother. A brother who lives behind the iron curtain in NJ. A brother who until recent events thought only the police should have guns, other than hunting rifles. (I showed him in person the only difference between an AR and a hunting rifle is the look and in a lot of case the hunting rifle uses a more powerful round). A brother I took off my FB friends list, because of the arguments we'd have about guns, to preserve our friendship.

Welcome to reality little brother.

This photo was about his 6th shot on my clubs table trap range, his first he closed his eyes and flinched. This was his first time ever shooting a gun of any kind. The only reason we stopped shooting today was his arms got tired.

I gotta give him credit, when he asked about doing this first thing he was he was wrong. When he getting ready for the first shot I could still see the fear of guns he developed. We used to have some pretty heated discussions on the subject, he almost word for word spouted anti gun liberal crap. Now he's excited about it. He also realizes how ridiculous NJ laws are.

One person at a time if that's what it takes! Good Job!

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

If you can get an anti to be open minded enough to at least try to shoot a firearm, chances are really good you will get them to convert.

Glad your brother came around!

DCFS's Table Trap Range has had so many conversions it should have it's own baptismal pool.

I got hooked on shooting in that very spot about 2 decades ago when a friend took me shooting for the first time.

I taught my kids to shoot a shotgun there.

When my boys were younger and involved with Boy Scouts we attended several range days put on by volunteer ROs and funded by the club. I saw at least a half dozen adult troop leaders come around on their anti-gun stances and become club members because the had so damn much fun.

One of my youngest son's proudest moments was when he won a pocket knife at a Fun Shoot.

That's hallowed ground (covered in spent wads and broken clays) as far as I'm concerned.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Although I was a shooter long before, the DCFS Table Trap range is the first I shot, at DCFS, and I started the membership process after the day was over.

Good for you and good for your bro.

Having lived in New York and New Jersey, I can relate to the societal pressure those folks face. I come from a different time when I could shoot a rifle as a Boy Scout in upstate NY. When I returned to NJ after college, it was a much different place vis a vis guns.

Having lived in Iowa, Florida and Pennsylvania, I can appreciate the psychological impact the second amendment has on a citizen.
