Default Good day at the range

Had a great day at the range today. Took 2 of the grandkids (cousins) and my son. The Anarchist-in-training was doing her usual shredding of the target with a Mossberg 152. Grandson (first time shooting) was doing well on the 50 yard line- but being a lefty, the autos kept pinging him with brass, so we switched him to a Marlin 39A, which he really likes. Son was enjoying my Remington 552, and I even got to get the scope zeroed on my new Savage 17 HMR. All around, a very good day.

Great stuff c3. Good job getting them acquainted with and having fun shooting.

That little girl has been putting 5 rounds inside 1 inch at 100 yards for 3 years now. In a year or two, going to surprise the hell out of some boy that thinks he's hot stuff with a rifle!
