Took a female friend out shooting yesterday.It was the first time she'd ever held a gun.She liked shooting the scoped 22 rifle but didn't care too much for the 380 pistol.She kept hitting high with the open sights but did good with the laser.She's also wanting us too teach her how to fish,might make an outdoors person out of her yet

Most excellent. Great job. Better to teach a person to be proficient than to let timidity rule.

Careful Squirrel, she might become a better shot than you...:eek:
That would be fine with me,my wife's a pretty good shot.We're trying to talk her into going squirrel hunting with us but right now she's not sure.We'll see ;).

SUPER! Teach her well. Women make better students, especially if they haven't been exposed and already developed bias and bad habits. The girls listen...unlike most guys, but if you err...she'll remember it where we will excuse it.

I bought myself and my kindergartener a Nerf toy dart gun..the Retaliator Elite. One for each of us. First thing was to teach him the rules about gun safety. The operation of these toys is remarkably similar to the real thing! Nerf sure has come a long way since I was a kid. My intention is to introduce him to the sport, to teach him respect, and some responsibility. When he is later exposed to the real thing, he will also be mature enough to appreciate them and his rights as a citizen.

I hope and pray we win the fight to preserve the 2nd in a peaceable manner so that your young son will be able to enjoy owning and shooting his own firearms in the future. Enjoy the lesson time and don't feel to bad when he ups you on accuracy a la Nerf ;)

Thanks Spoon. I've been restoring an old Marlin 100 single shot .22. It'll be his someday when he is ready. My parents were immigrants from The Phillippines. My grandfather enlisted in the US Army during WW2 and was granted citizenship for his service. I'm a 1rst generation natural born American and former Marine. I'm hoping to start a family tradition by passing down my guns to my kids and reminding them what their Great Grandfather sacrificed for the American Dream.
