    Yeah that would be great. You could even blindfold and spin them around first. /sarcasm

    Pin the 9mm on the sheep ... Yikes, it hurts to even think about it.

    Seriously though, there could be any number of ways to make it fun for the kids: balloons with water, exploding targets, pins/plates, even moving targets as in carnivals; or, witnessing a few top competitors running an IPSC course; and the opportunity to shoot revolvers, pistols, lever-action rifles, hunting rifles, shotguns. Beats cake and crowds in a back yard.

    Thank you for a great laugh. I almost choked on my coffee. I guess one would need to be into guns and understand the culture to get it though.

    A few weeks ago, there was a small festival / carnival setup in a town where my wife and I were working on a Saturday morning and I walked by this game where a young boy had a BB gun and was supposed to pop the balloons pinned to the backstop. Given that it was supposed to be challenging at a distance of about 8', I figured the BB gun was undoubtedly rigged. For just a moment, I considered saying, "here kid, let me help you" and using a better quality tool, but figured that wouldn't go over so well.

    Maybe we can teach the kids what to do in case one of the new bath salt zombies tries to eat them. There are all sorts of zombie targets out there.

    Considering the amount of supervision these kids would get, this is less dangerous than taking them to a pool party with average pre-teen life guard and absent minded parent.

    I think it's a great idea. Kids need education on firearms and what better place for it than a firing range. Combined with the birthday party atmosphere, I see nothing wrong.

    I remember as a kid going to a small local amusement place called Camden Park. It was kind of the forerunner of the mega parks we see. They had a booth where you could pay $1 and shoot a rifle at fixed and moving small steel pigs, sheep, deer etc using .22 shorts. I loved the booth and went as many times as my parents could take. I would have spent the entire day there if I could have.

    The rifles were just worn out, they had fired so many rounds and probably had minimal maintainence that the accuracy was questionable. However, there is just something about popping off round after round at targets that is hard to explain to those who hate guns.

    Of course, someone who did hate guns complained and they removed the booth and replaced it with an infared light activated gun thing. Sadly, just not the same

    I kind of hope they have more "parties" like this one.

    I think the only outcry is from stupid journalists. Responsible parents think it's a good idea.
