    Thumbs up My son's an Expert!

    My son (US Navy airdale) got the chance to requalify today with the M9. He hasn't shot that platform since "basic". (He has a Glock 22 he bought for his 21st birthday)
    Anyway, he shot 236/240, and was awarded an Expert medal!
    I wish I could say I taught him everything, but he's always loved shooting.
    Thought I'd share...

    Great job
    Please take my posts with a grain of salt. I am frequently sleep deprived and always just on this side of "Krazy".
