    Talking A Ruger 10/22 and 3 little boys

    Let me start out, Slickshot and I have been together for
    8 months, and she has 3 wonderful little boys, ages 8-12
    And for the first time she and I got the opportunity to take
    them out shooting.
    Let me tell you, it was the first time any of them ever shot
    any thing stronger than a pellet gun.

    Oh boy, the smiles on there face's were priceless, and there
    momma had a big smile on her face too.
    I just had to share with all of you, the happiness that, that
    little Ruger 10/22 brought to our son's.
    And I cant wait until I get them back on the range!

    A 10/22 was the first real gun I ever shot, and still have that gun today, as much happiness as it brought you, you can multiply that by 10 for them, and it's a memory they cherish fvorever.

    Smile A day they won't forget

    I am proud to say that our boys did very well, they were shown the correct and safe way by ron8903, how to handle a firearm.There very lucky to have such a wonderful teacher, one who loves them and spends quality time with them and loves to introduce them to new fun things. The boys had a great time and so did I. I have to say they shoot very well, "almost as good as myself",,Ha Ha. I love it, and I can't wait to have all 4 of my guys out shooting again. Thank you honey, "ron8903", For a very fun gun filled weekend, it was great..

    So, you have been together for "8 mounts", I don't think I want to even ask.

    Glad you all had a good time.

    I remember dad taking my brother, sister and me to a family friends house to shoot. Dad's been friends with this man since third grade (dad will be 80 this year).

    Sadly dad has developed Alzheimers in the last couple of years and the family friend passed back in December. When I would get home I would take dad out to see Mr. E and we would sit around the table drinking coffee and I would listen to them go on about life and the experiences they shared. Even as an adult I always had enough respect for him to never call him by his first name, it was always Mr. Eggerton.

    I have 10 year old son that I think the world of and I worry every day what the future holds for him. I take him shooting with me every chance I get. Last night he shot the Sig 232 for the first time. I was so proud of him. He is a natural shooter just like his grandpa.

    Got a wet eye as I wrote this, those boys will remember that day for the rest of their lives.

    Be Safe

    When I was a kid, my dad was a avid coon hunter. He had a couple of Blue Ticks, a Redbone, and a couple of Black & Tan hounds. From the time I was about 6 yrs old until I was about 13, my dad and another fellow leased some land about 30 mi. from our home. The landowner allowed them to build a 1 room cabin in the bottoms, on the edge of a bean field. We spent many weekends up there during hunting season, and some of my fondest childhood memories are from those days. That's where dad taught me about shooting and gun safety, how to build a safe campfire and how to be a responsible hunter. My first shooting lessons were done with an old J.C. Higgins, tube magazine, 22. It still makes me smile just thinking about it. Thanks for reminding me.

    The 10/22 is a great gun for kids as well as adults. I have it in my collection and my 10 year old cherishes every time we shoot it.

    Sounds like a good time to me. We had my 4 year old grandson out a few weeks ago and had him shooting a simple pellet gun. He loved it.

    8 mounts ....too funny. We know what Ron had on his mind when he posted this....
