    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Its my first time… please be gentle

    ]I was talking the other day to the owner of this establishment http://www.theshootingedge.com/index.php
    And he gave me a free day pass.

    So I ask you denizens of the armory, what firearms should I try.

    Thank you

    Anything and everything whatsoever that he'll put into your hands until he gets bored or scared of you.

    DO NOT DO ABOVE

    Try out 9's and work your way up to .40 and .45's

    Glocks are great firstimer guns, they are like revolvers. Point and shoot.

    Always remember to keep the gun pointed down range.

    Have fun.

    Make sure you don't develop a flinch - start small. .22 is a good point.

    After that, maybe go to a .44 magnum contender pistol. This thing kicks like a bastard - force yourself not to flich.

    Finally, hit a .40 or a 9mm. Ater that Magnum, flinching will never be an issue for you.

    My daddy taught me firearm safety with a rifle. Cleaning. Loading/Unloading. Shooting.

    Then we moved on to a small revolver. I believe it was a .38 a little too much kick for a kid like me. But I grew into it. Then I went to the 9mm automatic. Finally a S&W .357 and that was too much for me.

    Nowadays I like to shoot shotguns. BOOM BOOM BOOM!

    Cool. Are you paying for ammo or anything?

    Start with the .22's, and then move up to something like a 9mm or a .38 revolver when you feel pretty good about it.

    You aren't going to run out of time or anything, just relax and have fun.

    I suggest suing three guns: .38 revolver to start to get used to it, move up to .45 it has a nice recoil that you can respect, then maybe a 22 to relax. that way you get a full range of fun fnny fun..

    The company info site is down, but I do know of one shooting edge location in Calgary. Is that the one? I've heard it's a good place to get a feel for various firearms. The only time I've used one firearm was a .22 rifle in a short battle against Coca-cola cans 7 or 8 years ago.

    As I recall, the day pass is rather costly, but I plan to visit it one of these days. It's almost strage to see this sort of place in light of the attitude many Canadians have about guns.

    Canada has some anti-gun nuts, but it has a lot of gun nuts, too. Michael Moore claims that gun ownership per capita is higher in Canada than in the U.S. Of course, the emphasis in Canada may be even more heavily on hunting than in the U.S.

    Canada has some silly laws, but if you've followed the story of your famous gun registry, you've seen Canadian gun owners pull some ballsy civil disobedience. A whole lot of them simply politely declined to register.
