Pre-Christmas Youth Shoot
This time around, I told Lee I was going to introduce him to the finer things of shooting. I brought along a selection of DA and SA revolvers. Lee got to shoot Single Action Army revolvers, my Python, M&Ps and a few other K and N frame Smith & Wessons. Lee developed a fast appreciation for the old wheelguns. As usual, Lee's safety consciousness was exemplary.
For my daughter we set up cans and shotgun shells on an old computer. It's best to have reactionary targets such as this for kids. It keeps them interested, plus they get to see how far the slugs will penetrate things. Before long, Lee was wanting to shoot the computer as well.
Soon, both shooters were on the .22 rifles shooting at reactionary targets 25-50 yards away. After a while, Lee was wanting a louder boomstick, so he moved up to my SMLE.
The kids had a blast. We spent close to seven hours on the range, shooting all kinds of firearms. When we finished we policed our area, and hauled off our trash. My daughter received a trophy for fantastic marksmanship, and outstanding safety consciousness and range etiquette.
