My son's first target

Took my son shooting for the first time.
He shot 75 rounds or so of the .22 then I let him shoot 9mm. This was at 20 feet.
I think he did well. 450 rounds total I only got in about 10% LOL..

Congrats to both of you. He did well.

I'll tell him y'all agree, with me.
He had a few flyers, but I explained he's anticipating.
(he agreed once he flinched on an empty chamber)
The thing I was pleased about were his manners. When the mag was done he flipped the safety, ejected the mag and left the gun facing down range. He also had good grip technique, handled recoil very well. If he calms the anticipation he's going to be a fine shooter. It's good to know I have back up.. lol

Just love, love, love hearing things like this! The safe handling plus fine shooting is a +200 in my book.

Oh no! Not till daddy gets his.
He's actually really interested in long guns. A buddy of mine was teaching a long range shooting class in Wisconsin this week. (Basic sniper school for the military/police) There was a possibility of an open day and he invited me out to shoot. The boy must have asked me three times a day: " Did you hear anything?? Can we go??"

I can relate...here's my daughter's first target that we placed at 21'
Arey (1st Target).JPG
She was firing a Ruger SR22; her first round ever fired hit the center back square!
From that point on, my little 10 year old has been hooked.
