Two very proud kids!!!
Hello gentlemen my two kids are so proud of themselves today, they wanted me to share their pictures with the people who have helped us so much over the last year to get to this point. (Thank you) My kids wanted to go out and ring the steel today at 1020 yards even though the wind is blowing 13-15 mph so I figured what the heck. It would give me a real chance to work on my doping skills. Well long story short my son laid down for the first shot and diiinnnnggg said the steel. He looked up and was all smiles so he took 2 more shots, missed once and hit once more, because of erratic cross winds and a strong up draft. Now it is my daughters turn, keep in mind that she is only 11 and this is her first time behind my 7mm rem mag I put together over the last year off of a savage action. She settled in for the shot but because of the updraft and nerves she pulled the shot just over the gong. But she came up all smiles because that big heavy gun wasn't nearly as scary as she thought. Now with a little coaching from dad and her bro she settled in for shots two and three, ding, ding. You would have thought she had just won the super bowl as she hopped up to dance around and rejoice. Today was one of those days that every parent lives for the whole family as one. Even my wife who likes to shoot but really doesn't ever take the time even took her turn behind the trigger. She also rang the gong for her first time ever at 1020 yards. I hope you all had a great christmas and I wish you a happy new year.
