    Assembled stripped lower: $200.
    CMMG .22 LR upper with AFG, MOE, carry handle rear sight, $400.
    A brick of Wildcats: $12 and some change, I forget.
    A tricked-out SKS: $500 or something like that.

    Introducing some new in-laws to shooting: More than worth it.

    Watching a shrimpy four year-old cackle demonically while pulling the trigger with both fingers as fast as he can: BEYOND priceless.

    I started a thread in gunsmithing about it, I replaced the spring rod assembly, but I will need to refinish it. It was my dad's, the first gun I ever shot. (When I was also 4.)

    The smile on that boy's face.....He won't forget that day any time soon :cool:. And that is a good thing :D.

    Love to see new people being introduced to firearms; target shooting with .22LR is the best place to start IMHO.

    Kudos to you for taking them out to the range :)

    It must be a 4 year old thing because my daughter has the same goofy grin on her face after a 20 round string....

    Looks like you all had a good time......Just make sure to bring them back again....

    The only reason we stopped was that the sun went down.

    Thanks for getting the kids involved in a safe setting.

    The looks on their faces are priceless. Certainly looks like they'll learn that guns can be fun so long as all the safety steps are met.

    More kids need to learn about guns like this and not by sneaking into dad's closet looking for trouble.

    Wasn't that up Hobble Creek Canyon in Springville? I need to get my 4 year old out there soon.

    Yeah. I'm out in Tooele, but my in-laws are in Lehi, I wanted to take them somehwere I knew their minivan would make it. I usually take my sister in Springville up on the bench at the south tip of Utah Lake. (Locally, I found a fantastic rock quarry near Grantsville.)
