It is always good to see young shooters enjoying the sport…
That seems very unsafe…
Want to be on My Team?
Nothing like a turkey gun to protect your camp from the undead…
How many times do we have to see this played out over and over again?
Don’t hand a new shooter a 12G, and especially not a 12G pistol grip. This is not how you make someone enjoy the sport.
I don’t suggest using a shotgun one handed, however, if you are training for survival, you may get hurt and may need to fight while injured.
This is advance shooting, and should be done with target rounds, with single shells loaded to start.
Be safe, and don’t do this unless have a firearms instructor to make sure you and everyone else remains safe.
I would love to have one of these demo models, I would put it on a shelf at home and get yelled at everyday by my wife, but it would be worth it.
Before you start commenting on the fact that 12G is not a Big Gun, let me remind you that it is relative. When I taught my kids to shoot when they were younger I started them out on a .410. If you way sixty pounds, a 12G is a big gun.
On the other front, when you combine a petite person with a 12G and poor footing, and you are risking injury or death. If you watch carefully that is a semi auto and she takes a shot as she if falling. What would have happened if she swung that weapon towards the person with the camera as she fell?
Please be safe out there…
I can tell by the way she’s standing and shooting that she is a new shooter. If your willing to learn and practice, you get a ticket to My Team.
(But I would have moved that gator from in front of my new shooter as well…)
Come on people, that is just not safe. She could have fallen and swept the barrel across others if she did.
Teach new shooters to lean in and make sure their shoulders are in front of their hips.
Come on, the butt isn’t against her shoulder and she’s not ready in any way shape or form for that kick.
I don’t blame here, as this is not her fault in any way shape or form, but whomever handed her that shotgun may have just ruined shooting sports for her, as well as hurt anyone standing behind her.
