Helping A New CHL

Postby daveboyd » Fri Jan 04, 2013 10:56 pm

A friend of mine's wife paid for his CHL class for Christmas but he doesn't have a handgun yet. I was honored that he asked to borrow one of mine for his class tomorrow. Hopefully he won't teach the old Glock bad habits. It is used to shooting 250's. I'll be sending him the link to this site later tonight since it is such a good resource. Keep up the good work guys. :cheers2:

Enjoy seeing folks helping to bring others into the fold. :tiphat:

Just a quick question that popped into my head: Have you been out to the range with this friend and feel confident that he is proficient enough with a handgun to let him borrow yours? You just didn't mention having been shooting with him. Hope all goes well with his class.

I haven't shot with him personally, but I know he has spent some time on the range with some close friends that I train with as a PPO. He is also former military and has a solid background handling sidearms as well as long guns. I did spend some time going through the finer points of the Glock in my dining room and ensured that he followed safe handling practices when I handed him the pistol for the first time. Even though he had seen me perform a safety check several times, he performed one himself as soon as he had the pistol.

I'm all for helping new shooters / CHL applicants, but you are a better man than me! I would never lend a pistol out to someone without me being there! Anyone is welcome to try out anything I have, but I will be there. Might just be me though...I'm a little OCD. :thumbs2:
Owning a gun is like owning a fire extinguisher. Neither makes you a cop or a firefighter, but both give you and your family a way to hold the line against death until reinforcement arrives.

as above, I would lend it, but I would also take him/her to the range first, to be sure they knew MY gun, not just 'any old gun'
