Default Youngest getting better with 22

My boys and I took a friend to the range so his son could shoot for the first time. It was a great day everyone had fun and we went thru a lot of ammo.

My youngest just turned 7 and loves the Remington Speedmaster. I mounted the scope on friday and it makes it much easier for him to see the targets as you can see in the pic.


He started with one shot to the body then moves to the head. He pretends they are zombies and has to "put them down"




This was his favorite right on the center X


The rifle is a bit long and heavy at his age so we rest the end of it making it easier.


Great memories. Plan on going again tomorrow

Hell yeah!! Being a dad i LOVE to see this stuff!

A bit of advice...get the boy a "cricket"! ( ihave one for sale...if i dont sell it it will stay in the safe until i have G-babies to get started) Thats how I started my youngest. Hes now 12 and has growing into his great grandpa, grandpa, dads Win. model 61, and is becoming quite the crackshot with it. Just like his forefathers before him!


Shooting his "Cricket" like an expert for the last time...



First time up w/his Great Grandpa, grandpas, dads Winchester Model 61...


Getting "SERIOUS" about his marksmanship...

Awesome photos. Thanks for sharing. I got the same zombie targets sitting in the gun safe. Nice quality targets. Your boy can shoot very well. Congrats.

We have been having a lot of fun. I am planning on getting a few of the zombie targets also just not found the locally yet.

I see your in Fort Wayne from the tag on the side is that right? Where do you shoot and what are you asking for the cricket? I am always looking for 22 rifles for the boys.

The gun shops in this town are a JOKE!! Check out K&T guns and supplies in New Haven. Where Lincoln Hwy and 30 split in New Haven...stay on Lincoln Hwy, but make a SHARP left, right after the the divide stops. Its a tiny pink or salmon colored strip type plaza. Thats where they are located. Not the largest selection but the best prices in the area.

I also have found its worth the time and fuel to head south to Bluffton and 21st century firearms. Great selection, decent prices and THEY have the zombie targets in stock!

I have been in K&T they had my 7.62x54r ammo in stock.

I hear nothing but good things about 21st century but I have been there twice and not impressed. But I assume it is me as no one else has issues

Few things better than hanging at the rang while the kids shoot.

Its all good. We all have our own opinions for our own reasons. But in the back, right corner (south east corner) of 21st century is where you will find the zombie splatter targets. They also have the best supply of reloading gear for the best price in the area. The only other place for reloading supplies and shooting gear is Tomlinsons in Busco, but they are a touch high IMHO on price...but still a quality shop with better prices when compared to Rangers, Shooters, H&H and Gander Mtn.
