    I wanted to create a new thread, why? because it is way more interesting than focusing on the 10 page critical analysis paper and other large assignments I have to start and complete before Monday.

    The future of our second amendment right is only ever one generation away from destruction. Its survival depends on each of us to do our part to help the next generation grow up with the knowledge and appreciation needed to protect that right.

    So in this thread please post your pictures of teaching kids or liberals (conversion), gun safety, marksmanship, and to appreciate what the gun and the 2nd amendment provides the American people.

    I'll start: Here is me with my cousin and his son after he got to put some round though a keltec sub2000 in 9mm. He's going on 6, we started him out with a bb gun and after understanding of safety rules was established and exemplified through verbal quiz and example quiz with me pretending to make unsafe actions with a stick (pretending it was a rifle) and him telling me what I did that was unsafe, he was cleared to put rounds through the sub2000 under the close guidance from me and his father. Don't tell me you can't teach children to be safe with guns, that kid had more basic gun safety sense than I see many adults exemplify.

    Overall he had a great time although for the purposes of the photo he gave us the "tough guy face," next time I will bring the 10/22, I wasn't planning on doing any teaching when I packed just the sub2000.

    btw - for those concerned about how to safely teach children to shoot, loading only 1 round at a time ensures that once the gun goes off, no accidental shots can be made after that. I teach adults and children the same way in that regard, until they have proven multiple times they can safely handle the gun they only get 1 round at a time to load until I feel comfortable for them to be able to load 3 at a time and we go from there, the whole time I am standing at a strategic angle and distance to be able to help prevent any unsafe action while at the same time not get shot myself (kinda important)

    Training one of my Grandkids. He is 8yrs old and using the rifle my Grandfather gave me when I was the same age. 50 years later passing it along.

    He can hit metal plates at 200 yards out at DRRC.

    That can't be YOUR grandson.... he's too handsome. ;)





    Here I am last year training two of my three daughters and one of my three sons...


    First time my middle daughter worked up the courage to shoot a pistol... now she's a "junkie" and has her CPL (she's a Washington resident) She's working on getting into the Border Patrol and Customs, with the ultimate goal of the FBI.

    I don't have any pics. I coach at the BB gun program in forest grove. We teach four position shooting. Heavy on safety. The BB guns make coaching easier no noise or recoil.

    It's funny when people call lever action rifles "old school," I wonder what they consider this. ;)

    For fun have you ever shot the ram rod like they show in some war movies when the soldier is about to go hands on and fires his ram rod mid reload before they reach him?

    I have seen it done ... Not a smart thing to do. ( regarding post #12 )
    In addition to being a great way to lose your ramrod ...It could cause a build up of too much pressure at the breech or cause a barrel obstruction...:eek:

    For sure, that's why it's a "last resort option"

    But, figured some muzzle loaders have done it just because.

    Mostly by mistake... "The last Resort" firing of a ramrod is pure Hollywood.
    Please do not fire your muzzle loader with the ram rod down the bore.

    Well , we can try it with your rifle , not mine...:D
    Mostly when this happens , it was a mistake in loading.

    Normally I'd be a bit more easy going and lighthearted but...
    I did see a barrel develop a "bulge" just about mid way , after a guy fired his rifle with a ram rod still in his bore.

    Now will this happen every time with every rifle ...Nope.
    Many folks have launched their ram rod down range , by mistake ... And only had to face teasing and the buying / making a new ram rod.

    Your rifle was not designed to fire ram rods , rocks , nails or anything other than a lead round ball or conical bullet ...
    I say again: Do not try to shoot your ram rod from your rifle for "fun".
