    CJP: I will admit, my kid got a head start.

    I like it! That is classic! I wish I had taken pictures when my kids were young and shooting. I started my three with Red Rider BB Guns. The plastic stock was still too long so I removed it and made hard wood stocks from 1x4 scraps. Jake got oak, Theresa cherry and Keith birch. They were kept in the safe with my guns. They graduated as to larger calibers as they grew. The mistake I made was trying to teach my oldest to shoot clays with a 410. He did a lot better when I got a 20 gauge barrel for his NEF. It was a better cartridge for the task.
    I like Elmer Keith; I married his daughter :wink:

    All I have had to do was set a good example for my grandsons, which, honestly, has improved my own abilities, as well. Their dad taught them to shoot and took them hunting, and made them love it. I have helped them tune up their marksmanship skills a little bit, by teaching them the 'mechanics' of the shot and ironing out some of their bad habits.
