Introduced Grandson to shooting
My Grandson is 12 years old and has just recently started to show some interest in shooting. So I had a day off work during the middle of the week and one of my co workers did also. So he brought his son and I loaded up the Grandson and off to the range we went.
We started off with safety instructions and then turned them loose with the 22's. Worked on some sighting and trigger control and both boys did great. My buddy and I had the boys take a break and we did a little pistol shooting. My buddy had his Glock 17 with him and my Grandson wanted to try shooting it. He did great with the 9mm so I let him try my XD45. He did a great job with the recoil. He kept wanting more. So my buddy handed him his Kimber and he again had no problem.
Now my Grandson is a bit on the small side so I was really impressed that he could shoot the 45s with no problems. By the end of our shooting session we had many people just watching the kids enjoying themselves and talking about how great it is to see the next generation of shooters in action. On the drive home my Grandson asked if I will take him hunting. Talk about music to my ears. So it looks like we will be doing some squirrel hunting this Fall to get his feet wet. Just wanted to share a great experience with all of you.
