    My 8 year old Daughter made me proud

    While my 8 year old daughter and I shopped yesterday, I purchased some target 9mm rounds and was looking for pepper spray. She knows I have and carry guns, I have taught her gun safety, and taken her to the range to shoot at her request. She asked me what pepper spray was and I explained. She asked me about situations in which I would use pepper spray or a gun and I explained (I gave her some scenario examples and she gave me some too). As we walked through the store and concluded our conversation, she stopped and gave me a BIG HUG and said, "we sure are lucky to have you for a daddy that does all of this to protect us and keep us safe and take such good care of us!" I thought I was going to cry right there in the store (what a sight, a big burly man crying with a little girl latched onto him). She realizes and appreciates my efforts. Thanks guys for the advice and knowledge shared in this forum. It is being passed to the next generation.

    Nice!

    Sounds like you got a great kid!

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    BD,

    That's the stuff that money can't buy.
    Sounds like she is being raised right.

    My daughter does similar to me, she's turns eight next month. She's very intersted in shooting, however the wife has stood in the way of teaching her. The compromise is a red ryder BB gun under the tree this year, can't wait for her to open it!

    Great story!
    Things like that make what we do, seems so right, even more so than our own feelings.
    That is a special girl you have there, cherish her.

    Yeah, I have a 12 year old and she can put 9MM at center mass in a heartbeat. I always tell my anti-gun friends that it is ignorance that results in the child/gun tragedies we read about. Teach them and remove the "forbidden fruit" element and you are on the right track. Amazing how much joy a daughter can bring to a father, isn't it? Impossible to explain to someone who hasn't experienced it. Now if I can only skip that whole teenaged part....
