The bigger boys headed to the gun range a few weekends ago. Lineman wanted to get the guns sighted in. My oldest? He just wanted to shoot!


It’s really annoying to watch Lineman shoot. He hits his target, reloads, hit’s his target, reloads, etc., etc.. Meanwhile I’d still be lining up the cross hairs. Men. Whatever!


Our oldest has his own Crickett .22 rifle that he loves to shoot. But they were working on the bigger guns this day. That rifle there is still just a .22, not like he is sitting behind the 7mm. Hey, I don’t even like the 7mm. It’s loud. It hurts. It’s loud. Oh, and it hurts! And it’s expensive to shoot nowadays.


First they were shooting at the paper target to sight the rifle in. After that they had a little bit of fun.


These spinning targets are a blast. Ha ha, blast, get it.

Hello? This thing on?

Well, you hit the target, hear a ping and then it goes swinging around and around. The oldest is pretty good at it already. Lineman, he’s annoying, just as I said before. He hits the target and while it’s spinning he reloads and fires before it ever has a chance to stop.



Yikes, I have all boys....

I better go to town and get more ammo.

Men! Boys! What can you say? Where would you be without them? Where would YOU be with them? Great times you will all remember.

I know how you feel.Hubby,sons and I would go try to hit targets when they were younger. Me I just stood there trying to get everything lined up just to hit nothing:)
Have fun with them anyway.
It is a family time together.

Can you believe I've lived on a farm most of my life and I have never shot a gun. I have no desire to ever touch one.

I'm glad LM got to spend some quality time with the boys this weekend. I know they will love all the pictures when they are older!

For some reason it won't accept my open ID.

It's that time of year! Our seasons around here are Spring, summer, hunting, winter! :)

Kristin said...

Once again, with three little girls at our house, I cannot relate :) But it sure looks like fun! Actually, they do have a BB gun they shoot with Daddy when we go to our cabin in Utah - but those times are not too often...otherwise it's just a lot of girly stuff!

Brings back a lot of memories, I don't remember being the one at the trigger much but I remember watching and hanging around in the cool fall air and collecting spent shells and good quality time with the family.
