    Red face My boy.

    Maybe not the best form, yet, but he was nervous about handling this gun at first. Needs a lot of work on aim, stance, etc, but I was pretty happy for his first 60 rounds.

    Nice to see a boy learning from his Dad! Just today I was at the range and there were a boy and his father trying to learn to shoot his AR15A2 with a solid stock. The kid was getting beat to death. I offered my M4 with a collapsible stock that fit the kid and he was in heaven. I waited two full cycles of cease fire just to get my gun back!

    Way cool! Be proud. Sometimes I wish I had children of my own just to share the times with.

    Great name for a boy, I must say! Although, one could say that I am slightly biased! You must be awfully proud of him doing that well at such a young age.

    My Mom was originally going to name me Gary, which was really popular back in the 50's. But my Paternal Grandmother told my parents that there was a great new boy's name: Lance, and pressured them to name me that.

    If not for her intervention, I would be a Gary today.

    I named my own son Todd, after my Dad.

    He loves to kill stuff.

    Good for him. My kids love to shoot pretty much everything I have. I have made an effort to duplicate as many of the full size weapons as I could with .22 caliber or purchased conversion kits for them to shoot with and me to train with. My 8 year old is determined to master the AK so now I have to get him the GSG version to practice with.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    Kids+guns+parental supervision=WIN!! I take my kids to the range at least once a month. I had the pleasure of taking my wifes cousin (13) to the range with his father over Thanksgiving weekend. The boy had told his dad that he didnt like handguns (they do hunt with rifles), but he sure had no problem firing up my ammo! Heres to more great times ecrist

    ecrist - Great that you're teaching him.

    You might want to have him hold like this especially for his size and arm length.

    I like that, especially for someone Lance's size. I'll have him try that next time we're out. Thanks!

    Start him young & teach him well. As hard at it is to believe (these days) it is possible to get a full college scholarship based on superior competitive rifle shooting skills.
