    Father and Son time

    I had a bit of time up my sleeve before starting work this evening ... thought id take quick trip to range and my 7 year old son came along for the ride ...
    I was very impressed with his concentration and his listening skills ... he took everything onboard that I was telling him regarding safety etc
    James did awesome ! shooting both .22 and 9mm .. he was so excited to get home and show his mum and big sisters his target ...Name:  james1.jpg

    On ya Seano. Look at the smiles. Happiness is a boy, learning about shooting and rifles from his old man.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Well done mate, he'll remember that day always.
    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Young fella? What young fella? ..... Oh, yeah, .... if you look real close there is one wrapped around that huge smile!

    Well done Seano.
