Kids and Guns

I am posting some pictures today of my kids at the range in support of the New Jersey family that had their rights violated because of a facebook picture.  I know the story has made the blog rounds, so I won't go into details, but here is a link to the story in case you want to read about it. Boy with his gun.

These are about two years old, so they were... GASP.... 11 and 9 when these were taken.

I posted some pictures of a recent outing with my now 13 year old shooting here.

They would have a fit with the calibers he was shooting that day!

DH to our 11 year old in Risk; "you should have left me alone," as he takes Australia away from her!

Day at the Range....

We were able to go to our neighbor's friend's land to shoot.  He has a 100 yard range area and a smaller one set up for handguns.  It was way back in the woods and a wonderful place:


We shot my DH's Remington 30-06:

We were shooting at two iron plates and I LOVED it.  There is just something about hearing that "ping" when the target is hit!

Next we got to shoot our neighbor's Sako TRG-22 .308 with a suppressor.  It was wonderful!  Here are the pictures of us shooting it:

First my love:

Then my son:
I really liked how I was able to get the smoke coming from the barrel on this shot!
Here I am shooting this wonderful piece of machinery!

We also put some rounds through our handguns, but I did not get any pictures of those.  I did get to try out my next gun purchase though.  Our neighbor recently bought the Springfield XDs .45 and I got to try it today.  I am in LOVE!  Great grip and no recoil.  I need to start saving now!

In closing here is a video of my son shooting the 30-06 and hitting the target.

Going to shoot today.

It has been too long!
