Hi. Bear with me, I just want to brag about my son Aidan, who shot for the first time today. Recently I posted that my daughter also shot for the first time. I decided to wait to see when the interest happened and when I saw responsibility as well, so it turns out Aidan was interested at a younger age is all. I am happy that each kid got to choose when.
Anyhow, He was nervous, but did a great job just like his sister, really demonstrating the weapon safety we've been practicing. He got to try the AR, which we started with due to low recoil, and then the rest of us used my shotgun with the shot barrel. He wanted to try that as well, after gaining some confidence, and also did very well. He is 11. He was very responsible and listened to us intently, and was mindful of my fiance to learn the rifle, and to me to learn the shotgun.
So, just a mom here wanting to relay my pride in my kids doing a good job being safe, observant, and learning something that I hope will stick with them both. I think Aidan is the one that will want to hunt with me. We'll see what the kids say.
I was caught up this time and neglected to take pictures. Next time I will!
Have a great day everyone!
