Like I posted on that article.

Shooters are to teaching me to shoot, as crimson skies taught me how to fly a plane.

I have shot many guns, I live in AK its a rite of passage. But there is nothing a video game can do to prepare you for shooting a REAL gun.

Its LOUD.

It will kick back.

Its a violent (but channeled) explosion in your hands.

It can be scary to fire depending on the caliber. .50 scare the fuck out of me in a handgun.

Take that 13 year old to a rifle range to shoot his favorite gun from his games and I guarentee you it will scare him shitless.
