I walked into the pro shop of my local gun club today to sign me and my family up for a beginner's handgun safety course. I asked the nice young man behind the counter where to go to sign up for a class. He looks at me, smiles and says "beginner handgun right?". I chuckled and said "is it that obvious!"

    Exactly. Does not matter if you are a pro. As long as the family is well trained should be comforting enough.

    Just ask the guy at the pawn shop!

    I just got my wife CCL qualified. I sat through the class, participated in the Q&A session, even the shooting part. Why not, it was fun and you can always learn.

    Sitting through that class was a good idea, esp for family support.

    But even as a beginner you still get to shoot. That's the goal. Rounds down range. That 1911 in a hand controlled buck in your hand until the slide locks back. Then the smell of burnt powder fills your senses. Then you realize the instructors yelling for you to shoot your own target or get off the firing line.
