    Myself,my wife Deanna,my youngest daughter Sarah and her 2 daughters age 9 and 7 are heading to the shale pit we shoot our guns at. Taking the model 44,the model 23 conversion,my S&W SD9VE 43x, model 23 .40 caliber,model 17 BB gun as well as a couple BB gun rifles to shoot. My granddaughters have been begging me to take them shooting. I'm going to start them off with the BB guns then move to the 22 calibers and even going to help them shoot my daughters .380 and 9mm. Should be a fun morning. These girls listen and really like to shoot. They both have compound bows and shoot pretty good with them as well.I am actually anxious to go now..

    Have fun and be safe. It’s good you’re raising them to have a love and respect for firearms.

    That's how I was raised and I want them to enjoy as well as respect guns and bows..They actually shoot pretty well.. I have 4 other grand kids to take next time out..So,it's a win/win for me..

    Haven’t shot a bow in many years now; I’m going to have to give it a try again sometime.

    Piper needs just a little more arm strength but hit the best shot(including me and Sarah on the paper target.. 116881634_10160276022497228_8732762512104710370_n.jpg

    The BB gun rifle was just a bit long but I have a Buck BB gun that is shorter and fits better to them..We are planning on another outing at the end of the month.. 116909312_10160276018827228_7981209110634064157_n.jpg

    Have a great family day.
    I brought my son to the range from he was about 11 and we really enjoy it. Good quality time together. He's now talking about what rifles and pistols he wants to buy once he gets his own firearm licence in 2 yrs time!

    Thats awesome. I started out with a hand me down Ben Pearson 47# recurve. For the first few months I had to string it like a long bow so I could draw an arrow. Wonderful experience for them, and you as well.
