Let me start by saying that my father never has shot a gun in his life nor does he like automatic guns. He is a revolver guy because he thinks they are safer. So my father surprised me this weekend by asking me if he can take him to the range so he can shot with me. I always ask him to go and he always had to do something that day. So before going to the range went over some safety tips and showed him how to handle my gun. It turns out that my dad is a pretty good shot. After his first reaction of the recoil he got more comfortable with the gun and started shooting like a pro. Had a good stance and held the gun real nice. He was a little tense because he thought the gun was going to fly right out of his hand. The range was a great time and now I feel more comfortable leaving my gun at home because he knows how to use it now. That wasn't the best part.
So range time is done and he wanted to look at guns to see what he likes. (Who would turn down looking at guns with their dad?) He was really interested and had a lot of questions about all the guns. Since I have been on this site I have learned a lot and had all the answers. He was pretty impressed on the amount of info I new. He looks at a S&W 642 and said that is the gun. Looks at it, holds it and says this will be the gun I will carry for my CCW. I was like what He said he wants to get his CCW for his birthday. So guess what dad is getting for his bday? Nice shinny S&W 642. I will be going to get it for him because his bday is Nov 20. I am super excited and can't wait to go out as a family with 2 people CCWing.
Oh ya mom really wants to get hers so he can carry a .22. Love it
