    Proud stoked father

    Got my little 5yo boy with me to my shooting spot so I could confirm some of my improved rounds. Of course I have my .22 with me so I could enjoy some rounds with him too.
    So, after few rounds with "my rifle" is his time to play, I set up the cardboard box with a double printed target and here we go. I help him to "setup" and I try to "point" the rifle in the target direction as I thought it was out for a "long" way. To my surprise he put 3 of 5 rounds in the paper, one just about a inch from the "bulls eye".
    After I fire anothe few shots with my rifle i decide it was enough to me so I prepare everything again for the young fella. This time I let him to sort himself behind the rifle(with just a little pull forward to improve his eye relieve), then, here we go, always reminding him about the finger in the trigger only after he is ready to shoot. This time I put the little spinning plate target so we could hear the "ding". First shot, "ding", second, third and all 5 shots hitting the 4" little plate.
    I was stoked, the little fella shot better than his father. Lol.
    I know many of you guys has been thru it and I now can tell you too, it is so rewarding to know him and his sister are doing so well.
    All the best to you all and let's keep the young fellas doing good and learning all the great things we do in the right way.
    Have a great weekend!

    Good stuff, start em young

    When he goes to school, look up the local rimfire club and get him involved in that if he is keen.

    That's awesome, can't wait till I have some little ones I can teach to shoot snowboard and ride dirt bikes, both boy and girl.
    Your son will remember this stuff forever, I still remember the first time I went shooting with my uncle and my mind is a sieve

    If you can't wait to have some little ones Nibblet I will take you aside and talk to you about the loading and firing process and how too much safety is counter productive. Also your mind is not like a sieve. It more closely resembles a colander after you have worked a night shift.

    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

    Isn't that the thing you're always wearing on your head Rushy?

    I've got a son on the way, looking forward to teaching him how to shoot, ride bikes, build shit, destroy shit, weld, storm buildings etc. Will teach my daughter to if she shows an interest.
