Default Update

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.

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.
