A Chip Off The Old Block
This evening April and Ronnie went to the introductory program for 4H. One of the demonstrations was for Shooting Sports. They let each child have five shots with a 22 rifle. Ronnie has never had a gun in her hands before and was sort of bashful to try. But she finally got up her nerve. Here's the result. You can see the first shot was low and to the right. That big hole in the center was the other four shots. April said the guys giving the demonstration were flabbergasted! Most of the children didn't even hit the target.
I just wish Tom was alive to see that. He won several national competitions for distance marksmanship. He would be so proud!See the full gallery on posterous
