WEEKEND, Marc 3-4, 2018 — One way or another, new shooters will make mistakes. It’s inherent in humans to have to learn: how to crawl, how to walk, how to speak, how to do any action that gives us independence. Shooting a gun is no different.

If you’re one of those, forget about shooting entirely. You’re better off taking up golf.
Most shooters are not shooting addicts. That’s for the competitive set, then the casual hunters followed by weekend warriors. In recent years as crime news grabbed more headlines and assaults on women became just a line under commonplace and the nation’s populace were hit with the scourge of home invasions, people began thinking defensively. Some became aggressive and took the threat seriously. Others not so much, at least not until carjackings became routine. That’s when the notion of self-protection and home defense broke the security barrier.
