Nothing important, just thought I'd share So the nephews were over two weeks ago and had spied the shotgun in my closet while getting my guitars. They ask me if I knew it was there (bless them) and when I said yes, they asked if I would let them see it. I took it out and, after checking to make it was clear, showed them how it worked and let them each give it a go at holding it and cocking it and what not. It turns out they had never held a gun or been around a gun before and they were facinated. I talked it over with my Brother in law and on his approval I ask the boys if they wanted to go to the range with me that coming weekend. I had to damn near peel 'em off the ceiling they were so excited. Seeing as they have never shot anything outside of a red rider, I opted for the Marlin mod60 over the pump 12. They stuggled to stay on paper but they listened and took instruction well. I showed them how to safely handle a firearm here at the house and only had to remind the youngest one time about handing me an unsafe gun. They had a blast and couldnt wait to hang their targets on the bedroom walls. I look forward to taking them out again. Feel free to share your stories or ideas.
