    Independence Day Family Shoot

    Went down to visit the folks in TN over the fourth and in what has become something of a tradition we all went out to a family friend's property in Stewart County for a day filled with lead and lead delivery devices.

    The weather could not have been more perfect, lots of sun and about 85 degrees.


    Between all of us (17 counting spouses and kids) we brought a total of 22 different firearms




    Set up a target stand and milk jugs filled with water at the edge of the woods line



    And the absolute best part was seeing the next generation getting out and having a great time







    The only downside was that I found out that my new Tavor doesn't like being fed by PMAGS

    That is really wonderful! So good to see all generations being involved in a sport which demands consideration, safety and respect!

    Seventeen people and you only brought 22 guns?

    What's wrong with you people?!?

    So how long did it take you to clean those guns after your shoot? I hope it was also a family project.

    That's a great tradition. Will definitely have to use that with my family. Nothing like an American holiday with BBQ and guns.
    Me and dad went to the range on the 5th. We both left unhappy due to his stupid rifle shooting almost a foot high at 25 yards. Iron sites no scope.
    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    Just went shooting with my parents... we had 10 guns between 3 of us (left a few at home). You all need to learn how to carry (or buy) more guns!

    You just can't beat a nickle plated T-50.

    I can't help but notice how green things are around your place there Stoveman. Things are bone dry around these parts and as brown as it gets. Looks like you had a great time and I'll have to agree that the best part is always watching the younger ones behind the trigger.

    What a great tradition! The country would be a better place if more families did things like this!
