Finally figured out how to upload pics! that is my 5year old, that is an old marksman BB gun, and that is her plugging a popcan at 15 feet in my basement on her second try!
Edit: I don't know why her pants are undone, she must have forgotten to button them back up after going potty:rolleyes:

anybody else have any cool pics of their kids shooting?
I have that exact same model BB gun! Was made to shoot BBs, pellets, and darts, weighs a ton, shoots about 3 fps...
Well, now it does... :(
Wish mine wasn't worn out, but I had fun doing it! :D
Oh, no pics of my child shooting yet, it's still 5 months away! ;)

gp911-that happened to mine years ago, turns out the seal was leaking and they replaced it for free!
i was about 14 or so, so the state of my $20 pellet gun was a big thing:rolleyes:

Do teenagers count as "kids"? Here are a couple of me and my buddies out shooting when we were around 16 or so. That was more than 20 years ago. I'm the skinny goofball with the Navy sweatshirt and the "Flock of Seagulls" hairdo:

The second pic Mainsail, do you think that's a burning powder grain, or sunlight off the bullet?
The second pic is just a crop of the first. The third one was not in the same series, in case you were wondering where that bowling pin came from.
I don't know the answer to your question though. :uhoh:

Before my daughter went to Alaska I took her to the range.
She did well with the Ruger MkII:
She did REALLY well with the Marlin Camp Nine:
And generally enjoyed herself.
Of course, she didn't stay in Alaska.
But that's another story.

I posted this one on the Marlin 39A Club Posting before.
Here are my girls shooting a rifle for the first time. This was taken a year and a half ago when they were 3 and 5 years old. The rifle happens to be the same rifle I first shot when I was five.

Man, a gun grabber is filling his drawers on this thread. My son is only 4 months old, so no pics yet. Maybe a Junior 22 for his 5th or 6th birthday?
SASS, looks like great grouping to me! what range was she shooting from?

My 7yr. old trying out my CMP M1 carbine for the first time.

I think a copy of this thread should be tarred up and sent to the 18+ year old jack*** with the AK-47 who shot his girlfriend in the butt. Show him that there are five year olds capable of handling more responsibilty than he is.
And I have to agree with eric.cartman on this one. mchgnmike, that is definitely the cutest pic I've seen on here.

My daughter when she was eight, breaking clays at 50 yards on the berm. Look carefully you'll notice there's a .22 adapter in the magazine.

I was very deprived as a child it seems.......

Forgot I had this shot from the Flying Fortress.

This is from today. He is 10.

I think it's great that you all are teaching your kids, younger brother, etc. to shoot. It seems to me that the earlier they learn the rules and responsibility of shooting, the more responsible they will be in general later in life.
