    This is so awesome! Some of you may have seen the thread about my daughter's first shooting experience last week, so I have recently had a similar experience. This is one of the great feelings on earth, isn't it, Omega? Watching the satisfaction and pride kids feel as they are successful at a very serious (yet fun) endeavor will warm your heart.

    Keep up the good work Omega.

    Omega,
    My dad took me shooting for the first time when I was 8 years old. Believe me, those memories last a lifetime.

    Thank you guys, for the warm comments.
    I was waiting for her to be ready and become interested in this sport. She had a lot of support and attention from the shooters and she (as any girl) liked it a lot.

    Wrench: yes, this is Oakdale. Do you still have your Makarov and compact Beretta?

    Man, that is so cool. I've got a 3 year old that I can't wait to get involved in the sport. He already asks about it, I just don't think it's a good idea yet.

    Hey Omega, I'm a member at Oakdale, thought that looked familiar!
    Sold the Makarov, still have the Beretta, in fact I've added another one.
    Maybe I'll see you out there sometime-and congratulations on your new shooting partner, you know how expensive little girls can be I'm sure, soon it will be, "Daddy I need a new shotgun", "Daddy, how about a nice 1911"
    "Daddy, we need more ammo"
    Yup, you are in trouble, now! :D

    Omega,

    looks like you have a real sweetheart for a kid.

    If you can arrange it, try to find some reactive targets. The smiles will be priceless.
