Nice move. My son is 13 and I take him and two other neighborhood kids to the range with me (with Parental support of course).
I preach to them the entire way about being a good citizen, excelling in school, and listening to their parents. They are great kids...a little on the lazy side (my own included)...lol...but good kids.
I was shocked at how many questions they have. The War, Politics, the Economy, etc etc. I don't sway them one way or the other...I have them form their own opinions and then encourage them to read vice watch MTV etc.
Hi JimBobWay! I did the same thing you did, except backwards! I started out with the XDM 9mm on a Monday, and loved it so much, I bought the XDM 40 S&W that Saturday! What a pair, huh?? I love shooting them, but it does get expensive. Then I started looking at 22s, mainly because the ammo is so cheap, but fell in love (for the 3rd time in less than 2 wks) with the Ruger MKIII 22 LR, the 5.5 " bbl, not the 6-7/8". I started out with 2 mags for the 22, now I have 6. That bonus is all gone now, but what fun!
