    for my grandkids. I went out to my daughters house yesterday with a purpose. I went to give three of my grand kids Firearm Safety lessons. We had fun and they are looking forward to the next time!
    I just covered the first 4 basics a) the gun is ALWAYS loaded until YOU unload it ( If you see some one else unload it and they pass it to you, YOU make sure that weapon is unloaded) b) the muzzle must ALWAYS be pointed in a safe direction ( that does not mean always up or always down but away from harming anything or anyone within range of that weapon and associated ammunition.) c)only point it at something you want to destroy or kill. ( destroy as in self defense, kill as in hunt for food.) d) only put finger inside trigger guard when you are ready to shoot. Next lesson will include this and more

    It is important to remember that it is up to this generation to teach the next the fundamentals of shooting safety.

    My grandson is turning 18 months this month. I can't wait to teach him the fundamentals of gun handling, and shooting techniques! Both Dad and I are excited to start him down a long and enjoyable road!

    Nieghbor intrusion, made a safety class point.

    [​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    Waiting for a clear, didn't happen so the class ended due to an inconsiderate person that would have been well clear if they had stayed on their own property! they stayed in the unsafe zone a good 25-35 minutes then it was dinner time and I had to travel back to Anchorage to prepare for work Sat.
