    So I was honored with the opportunity to meet one of our fellow members this weekend and take my family shooting. He is known on here as "dwcfastrice," but after this weekend he is know as "Friend."
    He gabbed what had to have been every gun he owned, and we headed out to our R&G club. He set up a couple of his .22 rifles for my kids to shoot and instructed them both on how to hold, aim, and shoot them.

    He also played a bit on them as well :)

    He brought his AR for us to play with a little bit....

    Last, before the sun went down he brought out his G23 with a .22 conversion kit and showed my kids how to shoot a pistol (note the look on my daughter's face. This was after the first shot:eek::eek:...she LOVED it!)

    All in all, an amazing day finished off with dinner, with a incredibly generous individual.
    I am looking forward to the meet & greet and hoping to meet some more people from this forum soon.

    An a New York reload is when you change to another gun instead of putting a new mag in right?

    Yup....hence the gun behind his left foot. When I watched him drop the gun and pull the one out of his holster, I had a hard time not shaking the camera cuz I was laughing so hard[​IMG]

    I think he likes it. This was the first time I saw it on him. I remember him saying something bout it being his EDC.

    Nice way to spend a Sunday in July. The kids looked like they were really into it, which is always nice.

    Definitely a great day. I had a heck of a time. Your family is great and your kids are very teachable. Says a lot about their parents. ;)

    I wish I had grabbed the camera and shot some pics of you shooting the Black Bear and the M38 Mosin.

    Loved the Gun club and would definitely do it again. Just need more time. the 3 hours just FLEW by. I could spend all day up there...

    Thanks again for the invite! Like I said, you and any of the other PA brethren want to come down my way to shoot, just let me know.

    I LOVE the Fobus holster. Hence me trumpeting its virtues any time someone asks about a holster that can take a tac-light. :D

    Draws well, retention strap is in a very natural place. It is my EDC and I've taken to also wearing the Fobus Mag holders, as well.

    HA.. HA... HA...
    Don't knock it till you try it. ;)

    It just occured to me, I should have brought the Excam GT27 for the kids to try. Super tiny .25 ACP with a considerably lighter trigger pull than the G23 frame (with the NY1 spring) that i'm using for the AA .22 kit.

    Next time.

    I want to see if your son can shoot the CMMG kit on the AR, too.

    He would get the biggest kick out of the AR conversion. Funny enough he's been talking about the AR all week leading up to your visit. And when we went looking for a .22 rifle for him yesterday he went right to an Ar with a 22 setup.

    Definately! Looks like Ty will be getting his own .22 this week. Wife and I went shopping yesterday and are going again today. Funny thing is...wife is the one pushing the matter now. It's great! I'm hoping to be able to get them both their own so they can keep themselves busy while we each shoot.
    I honestly think my wife has been bitten by the shooting bug. :D
