Ashinator and CJ's Shooting Tutorial

Wardrobe malfunction aside, there are a couple of things she and CJ did right...

Visually inspect the chamber.  Also, notice the eye and ear protection.  Sunglasses are not the best eye protection on the planet, but they are better than nothing.


Firm grip on the gun, snugged up into her shoulder. Though I'd like to see a bit more of the buttstock supported, considering the gun doesn't fit her at all, she should still be able to handle it.  I'd also like to see a bit wider, more stable stance and I'd like to see her lean into the shotgun a little more.


CJ's demostrating good form while waiting for his target to be released.  His gun's in the low ready position, finger (or booger hook, if you prefer) is not on the trigger, rather it's on the over-sized VangComp safety, which tells me he's engaging the safety after each round.  His eyes are forward and he's focused on the horizon where his clay pigeon will be released.

I'm having cold chill flashbacks to one of my efforts to teach a girlfriend and her sister how to shoot. The sister did wonderfully and followed instruction without any problems. The GF almost blew her fool head off with a .357 when she failed to follow THE RULES so recently explained to her. In hindsight, I probably should have let her thin the gene pool out a bit.

I spewed coffee all over my puter screen when I read this....

"I probably should have let her thin the gene pool out a bit."

perchance if she cleared her mind of the Yankee's she would of been in proper stance and mounted the butt to her shoulder better...*snicker*

Just saying....ROFL

Methinks CJ had a clear mind and a sharp eye....(most likely attributed to NOT thinking about the Yankee's) BBBBWWWWAaaaHHHHhaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!

Again...Just saying...*snicker*

Awesome! I love that you called her Ashinator. LOL.

It's great to teach young ones how to properly handle firearms. Much safer and they sometimes pick up a good sport...or be cops...or something. :)
