She used to shoot rifles and shotguns. I can remember her shooting trap with her dad. But the years have flown and she's gotten older. So when I offered her the EBR, she was concerned about recoil. I had to convince her it really didn't have any recoil. For all the noise, it would just not feel like much. Finally, I got her to shoot it once. After that she smiled and started focusing on her target.
