I need some assistance from the gun community, specifically folks that have made it their mission to introduce new shooters to the community.
I've brought a couple new folks to the range recently, and it has become apparent that I need to pull together a more formal introduction than just random ideas popping into my head. At some point, I'll clear the time and spend the money to become a certified NRA Instructor, most likely to give the Home Firearm Safety Course needed to obtain a permit in MA. But that's not in the immediate future, as time and money are on the thin side right now...
So my request is simple. I need a source or sources of basic instructional information: Proper grip for a handgun, different stances, sight picture, etc. Manual of arms I'm pretty confident of my own knowledge, but a general overview would be good too. Sources of training-type targets would be good as well (I'm thinking specifically of the one that diagnoses common shooting errors, I think you know the one I mean). Something pertaining to general safety guidelines would be excellent as well - I go over "the four rules", of course, but really, there's no such thing as "too safe"...
Basically, I want to put together my own "Intro to Shooting 101 Course" that I can present to a person new to the shooting sports. I'm thinking a good solid half-hour to an hour of general safety, equipment, and operational overview would be good; even better would be if there's some material to pass along beforehand.
I'm pretty new to this, so feel free to pass along any and all information. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, and can only help everyone in the long run as we bring new people into the shooting sports.
Thanks for your help!
That is all.
