I settled on a Mossberg model 100ATR for my 15 year old son. went to the range today and sighted it in once I was sure it was homed I handed him the Gun and a Box of shells and stood back and watched. He shot at two separate targets from 100 yards. Here is a picture of his last 5 shots. I don't think he will be lighting any matches but if a deer steps out we could just be lighting the grill.
"I don't think he will be lighting any matches but if a deer steps out we could just be lighting the grill."
Besides the "thrill of the hunt", ain't that the important thing -- lighting the grill???
I think it's great that you're getting your sons involved with hunting. It's something that they will cherish and hopefully pass on to their sons.
actually pretty good shooting with the new rig. How's his shoulder feeling?
I asked he said it felt fine I shot the gun a few times really not much recoil... less than i expected I would compare it to a 20 ga. He is bugging me to go bak to the range he enjoyed shooting it. He was actually awarded a youth hunt with Westar energy here in Kansas.
Supposed to be a guided hunt on their company managed ranch. he will get to shoot on their range saturday so they can "approve" his rifle and sighting.
