My daughter's getting a Remington 870 Express from Santa this year. She's 16 so I figure it's a great time for her to learn how to rip silhouettes with a 12 ga. I took her and my 7 yr. old boy out yesterday and she did great with my .40 and .45! They both made me proud as even my 7 yr. old was dancing plastic bottles from about 10 yards with my uncle's Walther P22. I should have taken pictures but I didn't think to bring the camera. Anyways, I just wanted to say Merry Christmas everyone and may your barrels remain cool into the new year!
