    Feeling Nostalgic At The Range

    I head out to the range with a couple of 45's and my favorite 22, a MK2 Target.
    There is a couple at the range when I arrive.
    They look to be in their 40's, maybe approaching 50. They have a kid with them about 13 or 14 years old.
    The dad (or grandfather) and I exchange a few nice words. He states that they are teaching the kid to shoot. "Sweet" I remarked.
    We're all shooting and I return to my truck for something. As I walk toward the firing line I see the kid and his elders looking at my 22 in the open case. The kids mouth is open and he's saying "Wow, look at that" in an excited tone. The adults nod appreciatively.
    It brought a big smile to my face. Reminded me of mine at that age. I kinda hung back a few seconds enjoying the sight.

    I do that a lot,When I see a kid at the range I approach the adult and ask if its Ok for the kid to shoot something with a can on it,Nothing but grins from the kid!

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Nice pistols indeed. Some of my buds watched me tagging yellow golf balls at 75 yards with mine last year with the factory sights. Those things are a pleasure to shoot. If you ever decide to part with it try me first.
    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    and if one in every 100,000,000 M&M's contained enough cyanide to kill a person, the Mars candy company would be forced by public outcry to correct it

    Thanks
    I think I will go to my grave with that one. If, however I don't, I will go to you first.
