My two step sons are both mentally handicapped...the older slight, the younger a little more. The youngest has very sensitive hearing and won't even consider shooting.... The oldest who is 19 has wanted to shoot and hunt, but has a nerve issue that causes him to shake when he concentrates or holds something in his hands....so, when we were gratiously offered a chance to go to a fish and hunt event at Adventure Lakes in Laurel for a youth deer hunt and bass fishing event (sponsored by BPS, Primos, the Cliff White Cptr. of the NWTF, and the MSWFP) next weekend, I was a little apprehensive that he may not be able to shoot. So, Saturday I started him off with safety, then basics of the gun, PPE, dry fire - my finger on his first then his alone, proper loading and unloading, using the safety, etc. etc. etc...then finally lined him up on the 10-22 Ruger, got his hands positioned, got him looking thru the scope and to my surprise and delight, when he focused thru the scope, concentrated, and put his finger on the trigger he was VERY SMOOTH and NO SHAKE at all!!! So he fired several times, I coached him thru all the shots...starting at close range then moving out to 50 yds....he was farily consistent and accurate! The only issue I found was him understanding the "sight picture" thru the scope.... he did very well and by the 3 clip, he was all in the black at 50 yds...and was getting consistently in the 9 and 10, and even 2 in the X..... So, we repeated the 22 on Sunday afternoon, then I sighted in the Savage 243...using a light 70gr. round to lessen the recoil....it was still a little to the left at 50 yds....anyhow, after a clip of the 22, he was ready to try...so again, went over the specifics of that gun, the bolt, loading and unloading, the different type of safety, dry fire, etc etc etc..... so he shot a few rounds at 50 yds....pretty good.... a little more coaching on the proper "sight picture" by getting him to line up, then easing his head to the left for me to see what he was seeing in the scope....finally after about 10 more shots, he got it, the sight picture thru the scope "clicked" for him! ..... a few more at 75 yds...doing better....so the last 4 rounds in the box, I moved it to 100 yds, and his results are below.... like I said the gun was still a little left from me sighting in at 50yds..... we'll shoot again one evening this week and again on Friday evening to sight it in for his first hunt ever Sat. am. Wish him luck.... I am very proud of him!
