New and almost new shooters to the range.


Recommended Posts

After gorging ourselves on Turkey and the trimmings, then washing a pile of dishes, my son, my nephew and great nephew took our annual trip to the gun range.  My nephew was very excited about acquiring a new Remington 1911, and we gave it a work out.  We also shot my Beretta 92fs, my FNH .45 and 1911 RIA 9mm.

Paper targets, plate rack, plastic jugs full of water.  It was cold-about 40 degrees-but sunny.

My great nephew has never shot a firearm.  He was in JROTC and shot a pellet gun.

My son has been an off and on shooter when he comes home.

My nephew only shoots once a year.  With me.

Got home, showed my nephew how to disassemble, clean, then re assemble the Remington.

They were clowning around during cleanup at the range, and put the targets on. 

Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving.

Not the first time, 3 or 4 now.  Took a mother two sons and daughter shooting on second son’s birthday as he wanted that as a birthday present.  So the day before Thanksgiving was the daughter’s birthday, and she wanted to go shooting for her birthday.  

I told her mother to put the target against all of her date’s hearts as a friendly reminder to be nice ???
