Saturday morning at the range

Got to take our boy (he's 27 now) shooting Saturday morning. It was a special outing for us. With the hours I have always worked, and his now busy life, there are some Cats in the Cradle experiences in our lives.

First time we have been shooting together, just the two of us. Other outings have been with our wives, his and or mine. It was his first time shooting a rifle of any kind.

I think he has the bug!

    Long sleeves...........still chilly out yonder where you shoot?

    Can't beat having family at the range with you. A family who shoots together, stays together :tooth: :guns: :guns:

    Think it was about 60 at the time. Chilly by SoCal standards.

    Did the same thing today. Let my son do all the shooting with the new AR.

    I went hunting several times with my dad, but only went to the range a couple times. Once when we had borrowed an old Remington model 8 in 32 Special and once years later when my dad bought his Remington 7mm Mag. But I can remember those times like yesterday. Something about going to the Range with your dad that sticks with you.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    He was chuckling as he was telling me how much fun it was.

    He thought the lever gun was OK, but he really got a kick out of the AR. We put 140 rounds through it and wanted to shoot more, but the girls were waiting for us to take them to brunch.

    It was a good day!
