New Shooters in the Family!
My 14 year old, Jennifer, has been shooting at the local Sportsman Association every Monday night for 2 years. Tonight her Grandma and Grandpa were over, so we all - including my wife, Ashlee and our 3 year old, Hannah - went to watch her shoot.
We are watching through the observation window and Hannah keeps yelling "my turn". Next thing you know, the instructor is digging out a Jr. size .22 rifle and some sandbags for some bench mount shooting! Hannah is just thrilled and Grandma is scared to death. :eek:
Hannah and I are set up and then I start loading the single shot rifle for her. Get it aimed in the general direction of the target and BANG - she starts sending them downrange. Hannah's giggling and having a ball, I am thrilled at starting another shooter in the family and Grandma is ... looking... interested. "Come on Grandma, you shoot!" Set her down at the bench, explain the sites and BANG - she starts sending them downrange too. :biggrin:
Now Grandma is ready to start driving into town every week to do more shooting (the instructor said that she could shoot with the kids).:tongue:
By the way, Hannah told me that she shot 9 Bad Guys! :AR15firin :badguy:
I feel safer all ready. :hand:
