Not sure weather to be proud or worried

I had a few of my LE buddies come over today before we went shooting , the plan was go do some practice with full SWAT gear exiting vehicals and shooting from them.

My 4yr old was devistated when I told him that he coulden't go but he understood why and diden't fuss to much. When I got home he said "tomorrow when I'm older I'm gonna be a police , then I can shoot with yall"
and he went and got dressed up in his new police uniform , which ain't much but my old duty rig and his coyboy hat and pair of Speed racer underwear
(its kinda scarry but I think I dressed up like that once too when I first got into LE work for a girlfriend at the time)

The he siad he would be right back cause he had a SWAT outfit to , complete with Scooby Doo trauma plate and cardboard growing protector

With the way that the world is going now I'm sure that I don't want him in that thankless line of work in 18-20yrs , it does make me proud that he wants to do things like dad does and also reminds me how impressionable they are at this age.
Doesn't realy have anything to do with long range hunting just wanted to show off my pride and joy some.

I understand the worried part, but I would go with the proud side.

Looks to me like he'll grow up to be fine young man whether he goes LE or not.

Re: Not sure weather to be proud or worried

James Jones,
Congratulations on you pride and joy! Looks to me like a great kid that looks up to his dad. That's just wonderful. If there is a tomorrow, you'll be impressed how fast it happens, next thing you'll know he'll be shooting at long ranges right next to dad. Of course this is about long range!!! ;)

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
