Excellent. That sounds like a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the good company and also, be patient with that virgin Kimber. She'll treat you nice if you feed her good ammo (not WWB, imo) and give her time to get broken in. Clean and lube every 100 to 150 rounds starting off. We expect a range report when you're done. :D

Give Me a "Hell Yeah....!"

That sounds like a fantastic weekend!!! My daddy was not a shooter. Strangely, he served 31 years in the Army Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force, he retired a Brigadier General and only had a gun in his hand twice in his life!!:eek: My brother is not a shooter either. Wish both had the interest, but no such luck.:(:(

However, both of my children, now since moved out and married, are shooters.:cool::cool: I have many great memories of shooting with them and hunting with my son.

I envy you for being able to put in range time with your family. My last family shooting memory was of shooting a bowling pin match, two years ago with my son. He was on leave after a year in Afghanistan and his family came to Georgia for a visit. At the end of the match, he and I were tied for first place. We had to have a shoot off and I beat him by three pins.:D:D We had a ball!!! Enjoy your family range time!!!;););)

Lineman I first want to say i appreciate your son and father for serving our country greatly appreciated. But yes it is priceless espicially beings my dad is a gun guru you could say. He does some major research and loves tweaking, tearing apart amd cleaning his guns, so he along woth u guys have been a great deal of help for me being new to the pistol world. And for my boys and i its hard to put into words how much fun we have. We ll be back out again this weekend again too.

Most of the time I go to the range alone, but the times I have gone with my son are the most enjoyable. A bad day at the range is better than a good day at work. And a good day at the range, it doesn't get much better than that.
