Post pictures of you teaching the next generation gun safety and appreciation

This was my son's and daughter's first introduction to firearms, back in June of 2016...
At the time these pics were taken, Boy was about to turn 14, and Girl was about to turn 12.

My daughter's fear has since evaporated...

And their stance has improved dramatically. They both "lean in" to it, now... :)
And I broke them both of that "cupping" grip. :mad: They're both "aligned thumbs" shooters now... :D

The Girl's S&W Model 22A-1. She didn't give it a name. She just shoots the hell out of it... :)

We'll move on to bigger boomsticks once they can shoot Alphas with these all day long... :D

My nephew and my 2 daughters. Don't have pics but the cardinal rules of firearm safety will be the first thing they hear before firing a single shot.
I had my cousins kids (under 10) give me explanations of safe/unsafe actions while I demonstrated with a stick. It brought a lpt more meaning to the rules to have examples to discuss. After they passed with flying colors we proceeded to have a good time putting some holes in targets.
 
So, updating my posts from above (#202 and #203), the below was this past Father's Day, 4 years after their introduction to firearms by Dad...
