I like guns, I own guns, I collect guns, I carry a gun, I want more guns…
I am going to take a break. My focus will shift toward shooting my favorite guns more regularly, stocking surplus ammo for others before it dries up, and improving the state or my reloading setup. There won’t be any new guns for me for a while. And all of this is going to take a backseat to the project I am about to describe.
I want more people to be armed, I want more people to learn to shoot, I wnat more people to carry, I want more people to own decent holsters…
I am going to buy a handful of simple carry guns and shotguns to loan out to people interested in arming themselves. I am going to set aside a small amount of practice ammo (box or two) for each, a small amount of social ammo for each (a mag’s worth or two), one spare mag or speedloader/speedstrip if applicable, one decent holster for handguns, one NH state Pistol/Revolver License application with my information already filled into a reference slot, one $10 bill for the application fee, one basic safety pamphlet, one basic maintenance flyer made specifically for the gun with a small tube of oil or grease, one copy of NH state R.S.A. relevant to carry and self-defense, and one sheet of resources specific to handguns or shotguns (sites to read, basic tactics for lack of a better word, places to find ammo, etc.). And I am going to focus more intensely on arming those around me. I am going to offer basic instruction to any interested.
Which brings me to my
readers reader? spambots? I would like some help in the following:
- Developing a basic introduction to handguns that uses 50 rounds of ammunition* and some dry-fire to start them off on a decent footing. Pistol Specific (draw, sight picture, stance, grip, what ranges should be involved?, etc.).
- Same for shotguns but with 5 slugs, 5 buckshot, and 25-50 birdshot.
- Finding some decent sources to the practical (self-defense) application of pistols and shotguns that are somewhat printer-friendly.
- Any suggestions to better fill the starter kits while keeping them simple?
- Any suggestions to simplify them?
Once my financial situation improves, I plan to actively purchase 22 rifles and single-shot shotguns with which to start even more new shooters to be loaned/sold dirt-cheap-at-a-loss/given to people who want to start from nothing. These will have similar support kits minus self-defense focused materials.
I have a Taurus 85, Ruger LC9, and 12 gauge Stevens 620 set aside for this project, already. The handguns already have holsters, $10 bills, practice ammo, one speedstrip/spare mag, and one carry load set aside. I can have all three kits fully assembled by the end of the June with hep from you guys.
And I would love it if some of you would try to do the same.
* The round count will not increase. This is the equivalent of a mother bird nudging chics out of the nest. The people will have to learn on their own, and I am just trying to give the a basic footing to build from. Money is also tight for me for the next two years, I can afford to hand out 50 rounds here and there. I also only have time to offer one morning or afternoon of instruction to each person, anyway.
