    Took the Wife and kids out shooting today and fun was had by all. I did some instruction on the safe use of firearms and taught some sight picture basics. Will do even more with the family soon and continue to teach the kids and wife the essentials in safe and accurate shooting.

    Had some issues with the Walther P22 today. Seemed to either not eject all the way or fail to load a new round. First time its been fired though so i hope it remedies itself with use.

    First time out for the new Mini 14 as well. Fired nicely, no defects noted. Sights were even dialed in nicely. Had everything out at 25 yards, as the walk in limited bringing a target stand.

    Have to get an ATI stock with the 6 point adjust to make it easier for my children to shoot the mini. Plus it would look even better.

    You know your safe on the range when even your hat has eye protection.

    Looks like a whole lot of fun, it is always good when the children get involved.

    It was great Shihan. Need to make a run to wal-mart for more 223 ammo. That mini is way too much fun to shoot

    hope for more to come. Shooting for a once a month outing. Ammo prices willing. If anyone wants some once fired brass all they have to do is pay shipping.

    Great job there Doc! Nice family too! :D

    Like the saying goes...A family that shoots together regularly...ahh, hits the target regularly. :p

    Well something like that!

    Good shooting!

    Ever noticed a .22 round ricocheting off that tough rubber?

    We use old tires as the "table legs" for our pin shoots and have never noticed any ricochets at the rimfire matches (shot at 7 yards)...

    not a single richochet to be had. Biggest obstacle of the day was breaking in the walther p22. After a well needed ammo restock we will be doing some distance shooting at 100 plus yards. Gate was locked so we walked in, i wasnt packing the target stands that far.
