Future patriot? (I hope not)

Got my boy out a couple weeks ago on the ole 22. He was arround the place a little. The three in the center are from yours truly on a rapid fire off the knee: wink:
What really impressed me though was how he handled the rifle. Hes gonna be a natural.

Lets keep this unpolitical please guys, hence the title. Just proud of my Boy!!!

Cool, I remember when my Dad gave me my first .22.

I gave both my daughters .22 rifles when they were 10 and 12. And they can use 'em. We haven't done any plinking in a while. Your story reminds me that we need to get out and make some noise.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

Too Cool!

I picked up some .22 LR rounds a month ago and need to take Alex out for some Gun Safety education and practice.

reminds me of my first .22 also (I was 9 or 10, can't recall exactly). It was a big step up from my .177 pellet rifle which was my age 7 birthday present. Why are the spots blue? Probably a stupid question, but I really don't know.

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers.

Went to Boy Scout camp with my 10 year old scout. He has done a little shooting with a BB gun but this was the first time with a real rifle. He finished second in the shooting competition in his troop losing to an Eagle Scout. He's a natural. I'm a proud poppa.

My oldest daughter did 4H BB gun comp this year and did quite well for her first time out. Purple ribbon is OK by me. I've always told my daughters that any time they want to shoot a gun, I'd be happy to help them. I let them decide when they are ready. It always goes better when they want to do something, rather than me push on them about doing it.

Tell the boy "Good Job" from me.

Very cool Al... I got my 1st .22 around 6 or 7 ('73 or '74), and still have it... It's a Stevens visible loader pump... I can't shoot it anymore because it just can't be fixed anymore... After all these years, at probably 20,000 rds/summer, my gunsmith said he can no longer rebuild the firing pin... Here are 3 different 3 shot groups from benchrest @ 100 yds. I fired with it... Notice, that the largest group is only 1.405" My kids too can "almost" duplicate my shooting... And I won't even go there with the wife...

I was at the range 3 July practicing and cycling about 200 rnds through the nightstand gun.

I was amazed at the young children there with there parents ad grandparents teaching and shooting with the kids. Maybe there is hope for the future after all.

Doug - you have a pm you might like
