    My eight year old, first trip to the range.

    He didn't shoot the PT22 I bought for him to shoot, but he watched and wasn't uncomfortable even with someone shooting .40 cal a few stalls down. The biggest suprise was my wife. I've been training her on .22's. I pulled out my PT145 for my turn and she said let me try. I hesitated but let her. She handled it like a champ, couldn't believe it. She's 5'7" and 102 pounds soaking wet. She proceeds to tell me she dosen't want to shoot the dinky gun anymore???? WOW.

    Gotta like it when our brides put down the 'dinks' and opt for the 'bigger boom makers' ! It won't be long until your boy starts putting half your paychecks downrange either......Trust Me!

    They grow up fast. My eight year old loves my 9mm, she will shoot it all day if I let her. Good times at the range when the little ones are around.
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
    And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,

    My wife likes shooting as much as I do,

    The best memories I have is with my son at the range and shooting at registered trap shoots. Those 2-3 years went by so fast. Once he started
    driving the girls came and our shooting now is an occasional thing.He is 21
    now graduates from college in May so I told him find a day or weekend and
    I''l pay for your ccw class and then you'll be good to go! All my family will have
    there permits by spring.It does pay to expose kids to firearms at a young age.
    Even today they are safe.
