    way to go Gramps!! (does that help with feeling old? LOL)

    my oldest boy will be 14 in 2 weeks. we finished the hunter safety course yesterday with the little 20 gauges. he said they were pretty light and asked to give my supermag a try. after a few 2 3/4" low brass rounds he asked if I had anything bigger. he went through eight 3 1/2" T's and said "that's enough".

    next weekend we dig the soon-to-be-his 68 GMC out of hibernation and he can cut his teeth on that.

    I don't think you want pics. it is far from beauty but it is at least safe and fully functional. I smoked a Porsche Cayenne a few years ago with it.
    he knows it's heritage and wants to make it one solid color. why, I don't understand. must be a kid thing :shrug:

    Ok Bob. I had not shot a shotgun for about 20 years. My friend had A Winchester 12 gauge and I of course had my 1100. Out of maybe 7 or 8 I think I hit 4 or 5. The trap was not working good so we swithched to the handguns and the .22 rifles. I will be taking the 1100 out every chance I get. It was fun.

    Thanks 25. My grandson just left to go home. We had an amazing weekend. After shooting on Saturday the 7 year old joind us and we set up the Hot Wheels track and just being honest, my Corvette's won. I guess the old man is just too much for them. Sunday after church we hit Fred Meyers and loaded up on a few Hot Wheels and the boys came back and had races while I rototilled the garden.

    The cool thing is when we were shooting I took a bunch of pics of him and he took some of me. So today we went to Walmart (after Fred Meyers) and printed the pics. We then put them in a miniature photo album and took he took them home.

    Even though we are all gun guys we all know the most important thing about shooting with our family are the great memories.

    Thanks everyone,
    Jim

    P.S. Before the two boys went home two other grandkids came in with their mother and the energy rose when once again they found out that my Hot Wheels won the distance run. These poor kids always lose and are determined to take me down. They will be going to the store and getting some more to beat me with. What can I say, my cars are fast.
