Teaching my 3 year old how to reload...we made some .44 mags for the Ruger Redhawk and the Marlin 1894.

He had a blast and was very proud to be a, "Reloader Man".

And here I thought my watching several episodes of Dirty Jobs was the best way to spend the evening.

I was certainly mistaken! :D Good pics, looks like good times were had. He certainly appears to be a happy boy.

Awesomely cute kid - this thread does a heart good. I too went and did something else - better than watching the train wreck unfold on tee-vee.

Good job for getting that nice young man involved in 'rolling his own' ammo. With the way ammo prices have been going lately, reloading is certainly an art/science that SHOULD be learned by all.

I spent election might by cleaning and lubeing everything in "Foggy's Artillery Locker".

As so often California shows the way forward. The rest need only catch up.

Great photos. I love his war face. And keep up the good parenting.

It always warms my heart to see a youngster that has been exposed to firearms outside of movies and videogames. Well done.

Awesome job.

But kind of sad that he may not get to enjoy it these upcoming years :(

One other thing, ECVMatt....


You ARE teaching that young man how to make the raw materials for reloading, right? ? ? :D :evil: :p :D

As in turning that nice freshly loaded ammo into empty brass again :D :p :D

Matt!

You ruined my cynism towards humanity. There is hope after all!

Thanks for posting, and good luck with his shooting lessons in the future!

Have a great weekend!

He is still not too sure about the noise, so I am going easy on the shooting part of it right now. However he loves to help me clean my rifles and handguns and handled the .22 colibres sp? with no problem.

Thanks for all the nice comments,

Have a good one,

Matt

GOOD for you, and him! i did not spend election night doing this, but i do allow my kids to help me reload ocassioally also. i just make sure they have no contact with anything lead related. i spent election night getting hunting stuff around, and playing with my kids. i didnt know who won until wednesday. and since then, i keep hopeing i will wake up from this terrible nightmare!
