Took my son to an outdoor range

His first time shooting and we shot 300+ rounds thru my
AR and he did exceptionally well at 100 yards!

He is only 12 but shows great promise in accuracy skill.

Just had to share it with all ya'll

Good going. Best to get the kids introduced to firearms early, for fun and to stress their use in self defense. Maybe they won't like them, but at least they will have tried them before society starts to brainwash them into thinking they are only owned by the deranged and for committing mass murder.

Very important to take him again, so he can shoot a handgun.

Very cool! Some of my fondest memories are of my Dad teaching my brother & I to shoot & also seeing my brother pass those skills on to his 2 sons.

I can't wait to start taking my grandson to the shooting range. Your son will always remember you taking him.

Great job! That's part of what is wrong with our country now. Parents did not teach the kids respect for firearms and how and when to use them. My father taught me as I am sure most of our membership learned from there father's.

I think that is great. I remember my first time going shooting with my Dad and a my brother 5 yaers older than me. It was a Marlin bolt action .22 LR with a seven shot detatchable magazine. My brother was 15 fears old and he had sold Christmas cards door to door and earned enough points to get the Rifle. It was sent to him in the mail. That of course was in the sixties. I hope your son eally enjoyed himself I can remember most everything about that first time. I also remember the first time I went trout fishing with my Dad. Great times you never forget.

Fond memories of shooting with my Dad, taught all 4 of my kids to shoot. (2 girls and 2 boys). And now I have the grandkids to do it all over again. As Hickok45 would say "Life is Good".

Arland if I can expand on what you said "A majority of parents today don't teach their kids respect period".
