Default 11 year old first time shooter

I took my cousin and his grandson shooting to CCSP. My barkada and I were going shooting and my grand nephew has been begging me to take him. I told him he was going to be ready at 6AM. When I arrived at his house he was ready to go, his grandfather, who is my cousin wanted to go also, he had never shot or handled a firearm.

We arrived at the shooting park and met up with our group, I introduced my guest to our group and explained they had never shot a firearm larger than a airsoft. Everyone was glad to have them join us.
I started them with my scoped bolt action .22, one round at a time. I watched that they were observing the safety procedures and taking the time to place accurate shots. I put five rounds in the clip and let them work the bolt. They did well and they moved up to other firearms to include .22 semi-auto pistol. 9mm pistol, wasr-10, 20 gauge shotgun. I was proud of them, they embraced the responibility of safe shooting. heres a couple of pictures.

Good deal introducing the new shooters to the fun of the sport and the safety lessons all in one session.
Now that you have them shooting a shotgun, get them hooked on Trap and Skeet as well as the rifle and pistol shooting and they will come over to the light side for good!

Hey vegasplinker, that's great!! And please don't take what I'm about to say the wrong way. I just don't want to see anyone get hurt from shooting. I do a lot of 12ga sporting clay shooting. And Stance is very important. Part of the reason your standing behind someone who has never fired a shot gun is very understandable, not to mention if the gun or person goes flying you can catch them. But if the shooter stands with your feet about should width apart, knees slightly bent and leans into the gun a bit, cheek on the stock of the gun (getting kicked in the face is not fun, trust me I know). The shooters will still feel kick, but it won't be as bad and they won't be scared of shooting. A lot of new shooter get discouraged from shooting Sporting clay because they haven't been taught the basics. And once shooter get into bad habits it's really hard to break. If you ever want to go out shooting sporting clay drop me a line. PULL!!

David, thanks I appreciate the tips, with my cousin there is a bit of a language barrier, I don't have the technical skills in tagalog to explain it to him. My grand nephew will be a natural he had the proper stance.
I would love to get some skills for trap and skeet. I am not a very skilled trap or skeet shooter. I would love to refine my skills with a more skilled shooter. Thanks so much, I look forward to going shooting with you.
