Proud Papa!

We were at the range this past Saturday. I was rather proud of my 7yr old. He has been spending a lot of time defending our home from the invasion of soda cans, juice bottles, and gatorade bottles with his Red Ryder BB gun (sorry no compass in the stock). He has been shooting it since he was 5. He has been shooting my .22LR just as long. He has been laying prone and dry firing since he was 4. I made some dummie rounds 2 of which he put together himself so he could learn how to run the bolt. Well the practice has paid off. He wanted to run the .308 for the first time. So let him do it. The first round caught him off gaurd, but the following rounds he snuggled up nice and tight and squeezed them off. The smile on his face and the excitement in his eyes was priceless. If ever I should need a patronus spell to ward off a herd of Dementors this would be the thought to come to mind! ( bit of a Harry potter geek) He only had one flyer, but the rest are where they are suppose to be at 100yds. His last shot is in the diamond and the second to last was just high and left.

Re: Proud Papa!

That is awesome. I cannot wait until my little buddy gets old enough to start shooting. I will not be able to buy him a single gun though. He is only 2 years old and my dad has already bought him a pellet gun, a shotgun, a .22 and a 22-250. I guess I can save the money for his college but man..talk about a grandparent spoiling their grandchild! Sheesh! All I can remember getting when I was young was the belt! Funny how things change!
