    :rofl: I don't think most people appreciate just how loud guns are. You watch tv and movies and people are running around and shooting in stairwells, cars, talking to each other as they're shooting....then you take that person to the range and they realize they feel the floor vibrating when the guy a few lanes down is shooting auto :big grin: Its the same reason why many people assume "silencer" = silent and would crap hearing larger calibers fired through one.

    I don't really remember the first time I shot (I was little), so I dunno what my reaction was. Probably similar though haha.

    I remember when I was in the Boy Scouts when we went shotgun shooting and this kid was acting all tough trying to impress us (dunno why), saying how much he went shooting and stuff, then called pull and started crying because the 12 ga "bruised his shoulder". I was :rofl: all the way to the bank.

    Good for her :bigthumb: I like hearing about people making the effort to go try shooting sports. So far I haven't seen anyone who didn't enjoy it after learning how to do it safely.

    I remember going to a local outdoor expo when I was younger. They had black powder, air rifle and 12ga clay pigeons. I had a great time, but my shoulder definitely felt like it had been beat on by the end of the day.
