A Great Story About Learning to Shoot

Fenton Press columnist learns how to shoot a gun Julia Zaher took the very basic NRA pistol class, First Steps Pistol. This is a class for someone who has never shot a gun before.

This is a great article. After explaining that most fear comes from a lack of knowledge, she notes that driving would be scary without some training.
Before I go any further, let me just dislodge any preconceived notions you may have of the National Rifle Association. In recent years many have come to think of the NRA as a political organization.

The group does fight to protect the rights of gun owners.

But the backbone of the NRA is its gun safety and shooting courses. So if you're one of those people who flinch when the NRA is mentioned, think of them as driver's safety instructors.
Not a single gun-fearing weenie quote. Like I said, it is a great article.
