Nice 56 degree day at AGC today!!!

Due to the unseasonably warm weather, I decided against shooting alone and indoors today at Continental Arms and grabbed my two sons, 10 and 15, and my father in law, and headed to AGC.

We took turns with my Walther P1 and P38 on the pistol range, and my father in laws Ruger Mark 111. Then moved up to the Barnes Rifle Range checked the scope on a deer rifle, then 100 rounds with my AR-15 trying out my new 30 round PMags I got at the Sports show in Harrrisburg, the PMags were great, for a target shooter the bigger mag the better, IMO. Then we finished with hundreds of rounds though the .22 Marlin Model 60.

Today was my 10 year old sons first day shooting. I let him shoot the Marlin Model 60. He wasn't afraid, he has been out with us as an observer over the last year, and had a great time. Someone shooting next to us had a couple of metallic clangers set up, and offered them to us to shoot at, that was fun, especially for the little one.

As we were finishing up, the Monumental Rifle and Pistol club's monthly meeting must have broken up, as we saw a raucous crowd of at least 25 new members being walked through the Barnes Range.

A great guys day out!

Sure beats my mid20's windy day last Sunday. Today was great. Good weather can make all the difference with a new shooter enjoying themself.

Last Sunday was frosty.

That clanger helped too, plus the scope on the .22 gave him good results right away.

Next time you take your kids out to the range, have them ask the RSO if there is a clanger frame they could borrow. I try to keep one available for the kids to use.

Do not worry about them shooting the wood up. Just read my the bottom of my posting. As long as all the metal comes back the wood is cheap and grows on trees.

I only ask that they have fun

You know, that's a pretty weird post, if you just happen upon it.

Thumbs up Great

Congratulations on a fine outing. I still love to shoot with my son. Even though he is 22.

Skip,

For 2012, does the picture badge replace the need to wear the old badge?
