Grampy teaching my granddaughter to shoot

My six year old granddaughter Kinsley asked if I would teach her to shoot. Without hesitation I grabbed my Browning 22 out of the safe and we headed out to the range. We covered safety the best a six year old could understand. 

I let her load it and we put 50 rounds down range on the steel pig target. I think she did great and she had a blast!
Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    Little Annie Oakley in the making! Looks like everyone is enjoying the shooting, but her grin kind of says she's enjoying it the MOST! :)

    That brings back soooo many memories! I lived in a city and could only make it to a free range area on a rare occasion. If I may be so bold... I bought Daisy Saddle stocked BB Guns for my three kids and used a jig saw, router and file to shape stocks that fit them. The stocks were plastic and too long for them. I cut new stocks from Oak, Cherry and Birch so the stock would fit the kid and I didn't have to work on bad habit latter. They still have their custom BB guns. Later I bought seconds from the gun manufacturers and chopped them to fit until the fit a full sized stock.

    Alas my children are far away. Enjoy it grandpa!
    I like Elmer Keith; I married his daughter :wink:
