Default This week. Time with my girls..

Am going to take my 3 yr. old daughter to the range in the next week. Only as observers. She has her hot pink hearing protectors.25dB. Nice warm jacket and Dad showing her the sound, feel and hopefully love the sport. She knows Dad goes shooting but she has never seen where I go.
My wife might even like it. Thus meaning more hours on the range with the family.

Wish me luck..Crossing fingers.

With little ones, I think training begins way before shooting.

Best of luck. It will be great to make it a family affair.

Thanks CA357..

I figure that if I can expose my daughter to it this early, she will want to shoot at the age of 5.

That is SO COOL!!!!

You GOOooooOOooOoooO, Dad!!!!!

Future generations of free-women thank you in advance!! You may never know the impact you have on the freedom of women in both this country and the world, but rest assured that you and all dads like you DO make a BIG DIFFERENCE. Your girl will never wear a burka unless she just wants to make a fashion statement.

sounds great. I remember going shooting with my father at a young age. Great memories and now im an expert marksman, guess it helps to learn early.

My wife went shooting with me and now she loves it.

Thank You for that compliment ! That means a lot. The only reason my little girl will wear a burka is to hide the shotgun..
Would like for her to grow up as a self sufficient person not having to rely on anybody else.
She is already asking for a "pink" rifle. But she has 2 yrs. to go.

Being a gentleman, I tip my hat to ya'..

Ya know, I have same memories of Dad and I on the range also. NRA Competitions back in the 70's. Was certified Pro-marksman at the age of 13.
It does pay to start early !

That's why my daughter will be very educated in firearms. Good times with Dad memories. My little girl already knows the difference between a shotgun,rifle and pistol before the age of 3.

I can only imagine 2 yrs. from now,.. " Daddy, my rifle needs a scope !"..Yes, she already knows the difference between binoculars and a scope..

My wife likes it.. Just not "love" it.... YET...hehe

Just be prepared for them to shoot your pants off when they grow up!



Teach your kids well, it pays off for everyone.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
