for girls. Took 4 girls and a guy out shooting yesterday and it was all their first time. Only had an hour of range time before the closed so I didn't do much instruction. Just basic sight alignment, trigger control, and grip. I shoot with my thumbs pointed forward and and everyone had a hard time just holding it in their hand properly. They said it was akward. Shooting wise, everyone said their sights were on target when the pulled the trigger but most couldnt hit a shoot-n-c target at 7 yards. I was watching the gun and it didnt shake or anything before hand so the sights probably werent lined up. Everyone wants to go again next week though. Can't wait to get a Kadet kit for it. Probably be much easier for everyone to learn on without getting scared of the recoil of 9mm (from improper grip).
