I found this to be absolutely true when teaching Hunter Safety classes. The new, young students may have been tentative but were good at least trying to be careful. I quickly found out I had to pay close attention to when Grandpa (and sometimes Dad) took the line.

Competitive shooting is a great way to avoid the complacency of “I’ve been shooting my whole life” as a lapse in safety results in an instant Match Disqualification. DQ is only good if you get ice cream.
