  • Finally got some range time.

    Finally took 2 hours this morning and took my 2 oldest grandsons shooting.

    we had a blast.

    quick recap.
    ruger wrangler. It’s fun not very accurate 1 rough hole in the cylinder. Needs polishing.
    10.5 ar pistol I built. It ran like a champ 15 round mag dump.
    sig sauer Romeo5 was not working so just a function check we will see how good sigs warranty really is.
    grandsons other PawPaw bought them .410s last year.
    1 rock island it worked fine ugly as sin.
    the other one was a Rossi I think my son i law didn’t clean it first and the firing pin wouldn’t even strike the primer.
    the marlin model 60 ran like a champ lol!
    i took all .22s it was a trip for them to shoot and me to spend time with them.

    no eye bugging groups or ground breaking news.

    Just us men and young men having fun.

          Growing like weeds grandkids make you old fast lol! 8 and 7 !!!

          And I think punching tags is a few years away. Maturity is not where I think it needs to be. Going along but not shooting is a possibility.

          They don’t always mind on the first try and if you can’t do what I tell you the first time then I would be being irresponsible to let them handle firearms in a hunting situation in my opinion.

          id rather wait a year or two or three or four what ever it takes to ensure we are all safe.

          they do ok at the range because I’m on them like a hawk. And we had one trip last year that lasted all of 30 seconds. I lay everything on the tail gate to get organized. And when I turned around to check to see how my son in law was coming getting the targets set up I saw a hand out of the corner of my eye touching things they were told not to. They were warned you don’t touch firearms until you are told to by me or dad.

          So their father and I ended the trip immediately and packed our stuff after the offending grandson got a reminder from his father to listen to what he’s told. The other one got a lesson for not telling on him immediately and not looking out for his brother since his brother was doing something dangerous. We are our brothers keepers. We instill very deeply that family ties are all that matter and brothers take care of each other no matter what.
          I don’t like to miss a teachable moment.

          Anyways they did well this time.
