Who would you want to shoot with

Another thread asked if anyone here had been to a range that famous people were attending.
This got me to thinking

If you could choose anyone in time dead or alive to shoot with who would you choose and why?

gimme your top three if you want or more or less.

For Me

#1 Theodore Roosevelt- The man was just legendary

#2 Masaad Ayoob- I would ONLY open my mouth to ask questions and pay very close attention.

#3 Carlos Hathcock- Just to watch the man do what he did best.


Whos yours?



P.S. Id like to stay away from fictional characters.... but Bob Lee Swagger would be my choice if my arm was twisted to pick one

Gotta agree with your first two people and for the same reasons. In my case:

#3 - Mike Venturino, those long range black powder cartridge rifles look REAL interesting.

#4 - John Taffin, just for his enthusiasm for the hobby.

Obama, Pelosi, Bill and Hillary.

To show them that guns don't "just go off", are not dangerous unless I make them dangerous - which makes me the danger, and can actually be fun and safe. I might as well throw in that woman from the Luby's shooting too, to show that people with guns on them is a good thing.

For fun, I'd want 1SG Funk, GEN Ridgeway, Jefferson, James Hetfield, and a buddy I can't shoot with anymore.

My 15 year old son will do nicely. I really have no desire to shoot with anyone else. Well, I take that back. I enjoy shooting with my daughter, too. Anyone else I can take or leave.

However, the one I'm really looking forward to shooting with is my two year old daughter.

+1 to that I didnt get into shooting till after he passed away

Im really moved to see how many of you would be happier shooting with family than anyone else in the world

I dont have kids yet and my wife my brothers and even my mom shoot with me all the time I guess I take that for granted sometimes but it is very nice

Oh and definitly R. Lee "The Gunny" Ermy

Thompson may not have been a good shooting partner, heavily drug addicted, he went shooting by himself and it didn't turn out too well.

They already know, but they want you disarmed any way.

I am also noting how many people want to shoot with family members they have, or never got to shoot with while they were alive. So, yeah, for those of you shooting with your family, enjoy. They make for important, fond memories.

to the op this is a great queston & im glad you asked it. for me it would be my best friend joe growing up. he & his dad always went shooting & invited me along a few times. his dad had this perfect 1911, because he was a tool & die maker & reworked it. to this day it is the finest 1911 i have ever shot. i haven't seen him since before i left for the usaf in 1989.

Attention to detail friend, he stated WITH not AT....

:neener:

1. TGO
- For his expertise in operating the 1911.

2. Jelly Bryce
- For his expertise in engaging targets using modified / instinctual aiming techniques.

3. Elmer Keith
- For his expertise in engaging targets with a hand gun, beyond the effective range of most rifle shooters, and for being able to have an awesome BBQ after the event with what we bag!

I would love to go with my dad and my oldest daughter and son. My Dad died 04/2000 and our oldest was 1 1/2. I think he would love to see how she's not only grown up but how well she shoots. My son because of the male tradition of shooting being passed down and I want him to meet his grandson.

I've got a WWII vet at church who is dying of cancer. He wept when I took my Garand to his house after I received it. He and I planned numerous shooting outings but he's just not up to it. I wish I could take him to shoot.

As far as "famous" folks:

My son, my Dad, but that's it. Most any other person I've met or seen at a range has some sort of bad habit, has to tell you with XXX brand is better than YYY brand, or why my Russian ammo supports communism (yeah...OK) and I've just never run across anyone at a range that I care to spend any time with. Counting the number of times people have drawn on me or muzzle swept me to "show me their gun". Not that great people aren't out there, I'm sure I'll find one some day, but I've never seen anyone on TV. Well maybe the Gunny, or Clint Eastwood, now that I think about it a bit more.

Funny you should mention Ghandi. He said this:

"Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."

Even the Dalai Lama has expressed misgivings about allowing the slaughter of the Forbidden City because of a non-violent stance.

Other than family - which would include a couple of gggrandfathers who fought in the Civil War, my sons and my less than one year old grandson:

Ed McGivern; I'd like to see him do that...
Jelly Brice; arguably one the best of the modern gunfighters, and
Bill Hahn; who taught me how to shoot and is sadly no longer in this mortal coil.

Others include some old friends who aren't available anymore, and many of the others mentioned prior. Not to mention some of the great hunters of the past,
Rourke
W. M. D. "Karamojo" Bell, and others who's names don't come to mind immediately.

It's hard to limit this to only three.

I want to shoot with anyone that it gives me the chance to prove that guns aren't the evil instruments of doom and destruction lots of people seem to think they are.

And yeah, for first timers, they get to shoot my guns and my ammo, and I pay all the range fees.

As for the range etiquette, I discuss that with all new shooters before we head out, and I won't blink at correcting someone that I feel is being unsafe. I'll shoot with just about anyone.
