    My daughter and her latest love and I spent the day at the range shooting 9mm, 40 cal, 357 mag, and ARs.
    I am impress with her young man. He shoots very well with a pistol and is no slouch with his AR.
    My daughter has developed a flinch shooting her 9mm and I showed her how to get rid of it. She is just getting back into shooting and has got her CPL and carries at times. She is going to need to do a lot of dry firing to get that flinch under control but her guy can help so I feel good about her. My 357 was too much but she handled my 40 with ease. Her guy shoots almost as good as I do... I may have to practice more to stay ahead. ;)

    that's cool, @SheepDog . Thanks for a reminder to set a date to go out with my offspring and practice. Maybe make it a more regular thing, just set the date and whoever can go, goes.

    That is all it takes. Well that and finding a day that is good enough to shoot but not good enough for my son to go boating. :)

    Good for you. And yes, make sure you practice. Can't have the boy challenging you for Alpaha status just yet. ;)

    I envy you .

    With the knee replacement, and the near 100° days, I am climbing the walls to do what you just did.

    Soon

    My 12 year old grandson son shooting my Sharps Quigley 45-70.
    He loves that rifle.
    Look at both pics and see the difference.

    IIRC, that Quigley doesn't kick much for a .45-70, given that long heavy barrel. I remember one of the other .45-70's you had that kicked like a mule though.

    That Quigley of yours is still the most exquisite gun I have ever fired. Such fond memories of shooting that beautiful piece of art, and later hanging out with you and the Misses watching the movie.

    Yes, we talk about those times all the time.
    If these knees come thru as good as I believe they will, and our health holds up, we may revive that event.

    That Pedersoli Sharps Quigley rifle weighs in at 13 lbs, 34 " barrel, and is the easiest on recoil, but after a box or 2 of heavy loads...even the young shoulder needed some extra padding. That day he shot 2 boxes, 40 rounds.:fun fun:

    Found this pic of my son after he finished his first AR-15 build (around age 15). He is shooting it for the first time.

    I find it harder to take pics of my girls when they are shooting because I am always hovering over them, where the teenage boy just does his own thing. ;)

    Also note we have a port-a-potty at our family range.

    I notice the port-a-potty is down range, do you have problems with constipation?

    I have some princesses who are not going to squat in the grass. I decided getting them out shooting was more important than the money it costs to have a plastic commode.

    We also have a trap range out there and it's near our beach, so it gets used a lot.
