Default Happiness is....

When you take a new shooter out.
Provide safety briefings.
Provide instructions on stance, trigger pull, breath control, etc....

And watching them hit the 10 ring and a couple of "X's at 7 yards.

Amen to that brother. Can't wait for my kids to get just a bit older to provide the same instruction.

I agree when that happens it feels good you are continuing the tradition of safe shooting and it is fun.

Happiness is knowing they can protect themselves when you are not there.

Congrats on the successful range training!


Happiness is simple, dead bears, piles of them, preferably aflame.

I wonder if Orangello collects teddy bears?

Reply, "Sure, as rugs and trophies. I also drink my whiskey out of a bear skull, and scratch my back with a bear claw attached to a stick."
