My best students have always been women. They grew up putting dresses on dolls, and tending to the sweeter side of the sexes.
When introduced to firearms, they pay attention to the details, because a gun can "hurt you."
Boys on the other hand have no fear and think they are invincible. They do stoopid shnitt just because they can. Sometimes it takes a two-by-four across their noggings or a huge dose of humility to get their attention.
#12. Every Friend and Family Member who shot a BB gun when they were 8 years old will consider themselves a Firearms Expert and will want to give you advice. Just smile and take it for what it's worth.
