    That's awesome. Great bonding time and a chance to spark and keep interest in this stuff. Always good to see it being passed down to the younger generations.

    Several years ago, I walked my son through his first AR build, letting him do all the work. We used a new receiver and lower parts kit I got him and mostly spare parts I had in the man cave. He's upgraded parts on it here and there since then. After finishing it, I walked him through the process of loading 50 rounds of 223 ammo.  Then we went out and he got to shoot the gun he built using ammo he made. It really took his interest to the next level. He's always been into shooting. But now he understands at least the basics of the workings of it all. And, he has a better appreciation for what it takes to make ammo... It was easy to go out and burn up all dad's ammo without thinking about the work that went into it.. lol

    He took it upon himself to take pictures of each step and label them...

    Just noticed I got the wrong pic on the last one. That was a different time. Oh well.

    I was fortunate enough to grow up shooting competitively under my father's tutelage. Even when off at military school he'd still pull me away some Saturdays to go shoot Hi Power matches. Although our competitive interests have split ways a bit as far as disciplines go (he into LR rifle and myself into USPSA style shooting), the overarching principle and bonding subject is still there. Unforgettable experiences for sure!
