    I have a 4-year-old grandson. I'm discovering you can't keep a little boy from wanting to shoot stuff - even if he's being discouraged by his mom and grandmas. Now, I'm sure the same is true for many little girls - but maybe not as universal. It just seems the attraction to an extension of force is irresistible for most boys.

    Yesterday he was over for my birthday along with my brother and his granddaughters about the same age. We were having fun swimming in the pool, shooting squirt guns, and making bubbles.

    Almost instantly, my grandson realized that he could shoot his cousin's bubbles right out of the sky! A new game was invented that I have dubbed..."Bubble Skeet Shoot". He was hitting everything he aimed at too! Has anyone else ever tried this? It is a heck of a lot of fun!

    P.S. For all you women shooters, this is not meant to be sexist - but his girl cousins had no interest in our new game. Next time they come over I'll try to get them into it.

    First of all, happy (belated) birthday!

    My fiancee and I often have to watch her nephews (aged three and seven) and they're obsessed with bubbles. I don't know what it is, they just can't stay away from 'em.

    Now, I'm gonna have to go get a few squirt guns for the next time they come to visit. Thanks for the idea!

    Your welcome...Enjoy (You'll have fun with it too, I'll bet)!

    And thanks for the B'day wish. For some reason, my daughter invited a bunch of grown-ups to my grandson's b'day party - and my wife invited a bunch of little kids (grandson and grand-neices) to mine. Personally, I have more fun watching kids having a good time than watching adults sit around chit-chatting.
