My grandson is 5 and I can't wait to take him out shooting. Great job Grandpa!

Good to see you guys spending time together, especially shooting. Some of my fondest childhood memories were shooting with my grandfather. I am sure your grandson will feel the same. Thanks for sharing.

O_P, I've occasionally thought you would be a cool grandfather to have.

Looks like my suspicions are confirmed.

Getting picked up by Grandad from school to go shooting?

Excellent work O_P!

Awesome, I hope I get to shoot with my Grandkids one day.

I'll +1 this.

Looks like he not only knows the first rule (not to point the weapon at anyone) but it sounds like he learned the first lesson as well.

Shooting stuff is fun.

My Grandfather was the one who taught me and my brothers to shoot.

Me neither, my grandpa was a gunsmith, I would have love to meet him but he died when my mom was 18.

Excellent work Grandpa!

This thread is just flat-out awesome.

When I was a little kid my dad bought me a Browning .22 lever-action. Mine's a grade II.

I still squirrel hunt with it.

Yep.

Reminds me of 3 generations in a duck blind growing up.

Both my grandfathers were my best friends until I was pert near 40.

I was one of the lucky ones as they were both good teachers (RIP).

OP is winning !

I wonder how long it will be before he is out there seeing how many sheets of drywall and water filled milk jugs those will shoot through.
