Proud Grandpa

But it's going to cost me a really nice pistol. Took my grandson shooting last year and he got to shoot my P238 which he really enjoyed. When we were done he said "man I love that pistol" Well he wasn't doing that well in school as a junior and I told him that if he graduated on the honor roll I would give it to him. Well I open the paper this morning and lo and behold was his high schools honor roll list and his name was on it. I guess he just needed something to set his sights on and shoot for. Pun intended.

Nice work gramps, it's good to hear that a gun helped make such a positive change in a young mans life. Can you imagine him telling this story to one of his children years from now and making the same deal with them?

I can only hope I'm around that long. If I had known I was going to live this long I would've taking much better care of myself.

Nice job Cuca. That gun will probably be passed on to your family members for generations.

Well done, Grandpa.

A lot of the members of our club bring their grandkids to shoot. It's a special time and memories for both.

He's a good kid and will get all my guns eventually. Whether to parcel them out slowly or all at once when I croak. Either way then his collection will rival his dads.
