New Shooter - Don't Shoot Your Eye Out Kid!

My son has been asking when he can come to the range with me for quite some time. I figured I'd ease him into it so I suggested to my brother that a BB gun would be a good gift idea. Well, he certainly took that idea and ran with it!

What did he open Christmas morning? A Crosman BB/Pellet rifle! To say he was excited would be an understatement.

Got him out this morning to shoot it for the first time. Lined a few empty cans and an empty milk jug at about 30 feet. While not a natural (yet!), he managed to hit about 50% of the targets the first time! He's a bit small to really use it well - we will see how well he grows into over the next few years before we upgrade him to his own .22 rifle.

I was one proud papa this morning!

He looks like he's ready to explode with pure joy. *grin*  Way to go!!!

Thanks Nancy! The first time he hit the milk jug and knocked it over was priceless. There are some moments with my kids that I wouldn't trade for anything and that was one of them.

What an awesome gift!  Can still remember my first bb gun, really fun times back then.

You and me both, Julie!

He's absolutely hilarious when we shoot - every time he hits something he shouts "Take that you BBs! You can't hide from me!"

He's so cute! Even as a child he knows how to use a gun. He looks so cool...
