I went out to my daughters house yesterday with a purpose. I went to give three of my grand kids Firearm Safety lessons. We had fun and they are looking forward to the next time!
I just covered the first 4 basics a) the gun is ALWAYS loaded until YOU unload it ( If you see some one else unload it and they pass it to you, YOU make sure that weapon is unloaded) b) the muzzle must ALWAYS be pointed in a safe direction ( that does not mean always up or always down but away from harming anything or anyone within range of that weapon and associated ammunition.) c)only point it at something you want to destroy or kill. ( destroy as in self defense, kill as in hunt for food.) d) only put finger inside trigger guard when you are ready to shoot. Next lesson will include this and more

That is really excellent work, Mate !
It's a pity thet everyone does not get tought that way, we would all be a lot safer.

I was out with a Mate, on a Goat shooting trip, and he starts "frigging" with the bolt, and he dosen't realise that the pointy end is pointed directly at me..
He couldn't work out why he got called "ladies bits", and said he had "no intention of touching the trigger !"
End result, he got called more "ladies bits", and then some.

He don't go out with me any more
I refuse to hunt with him
Cheers
Bucky

Way to go grandpa. You won't be sorry. Good to see you spending quality time with the grand-kids and supporting the future generation of shooter/hunters.

This week the Pellet gun ( due to back stop/ range) down the line .22 at a local shooting range as I get confidence in their following instruction as an individual in a group setting ( I will incorporate the parents help, but I am relying on their concentration on MY voice and actions)

Nieghbor intrusion, made a safety class point.

Waiting for a clear, didn't happen so the class ended due to an inconsiderate person that would have been well clear if they had stayed on their own property! they stayed in the unsafe zone a good 25-35 minutes then it was dinner time and I had to travel back to Anchorage to prepare for work Sat.
