My brother and I used to target shoot in the back yard all the time. We shot thousands of rounds into the backstop that we had made out of logs. Sometimes we shot .22, sometimes deer rifles and sometimes we shot skeet with shotguns. I learned a lot about guns, about my brother (like don’t tangle with him…he’s a better shot), and about being outdoors. When we got old enough, I suppose we shot every day after school.
It was a great time of fun and friendship. This weekend, I decided that Isaac needed to be initiated into the back-yard-shooter’s club. My Dad and I talked with him extensively about firearm safety, how to aim and shoot, and how to take a little ribbing when we miss a shot. Dad and I are right-handed and Isaac is left-handed
so that introduced a little twist to the fun. I expect Isaac and I will do some more practice in the coming months. We’ll initiate Abigail when she gets a little older too!
