I would always be there. One, to guarentee the rifle does not accidently get damaged or used unsafely. Two, to load and adjust the gun to get it to shot it's bests. There was one guy who showed up to try a gun out that I had. After he shot it, he was not impressed and actually thought it to be a POS. I set down with it and shot two mid ones back to back. He bought the rifle and then learned how to shot it. Also, if it's got a good barrel on it, you want to make sure it is properly cleaning, not shot to hot, etc.

Don't let it out of your sight. Even best friends sometimes get careless and accidents happen. Be there with the rifle for a test session, and let the choice be made. If you can't shoot it after an hour, you can't shoot it; no reason to keep "trying" it.
