Took my son to the range today
 
I took my son for his first time shooting today. I brought my Ruger sr 22, so we could work on the basics. I think for the most part it went very well, his shots were on the paper. We'll be working on his grouping later down the road lol. I also brought my sw 380 bodyguard, it shot well, but very long trigger pull.

Good job. We all have to start somewhere. He will remember this day forever.

How old is he? I love shooting with my son. He started very early. Maybe like 4 or 5 with a bb gun. He is now almost 14 and can give me a run for my money with just about anything we shoot.

He's 9 and I also started him out on a bb gun. I just recently became a member with a local shooting range (Izaak Walton League). I thought what better time to him get started than now. I have a middle daughter who is 7 and younger son who is 4, so I'll have my hands full for sure.

that's where you come in....DAD. :) teach him, and forget he is, what was it 14. teach him and remind him EVERYTIME, that he has a weapon and ingrain it into his psyche about checkin to see if loaded, watchin the barrel, safety on, etc, etc. he will get it.

do it often, it will come.

i took my 4 y.o. lil girl dove huntin last weekend, she loved it. but, she's also known that her Daddy hunts deer, and shoots armadillos in the yard since she was old enough to know what deer and armadillos were.
