Birthday boy

Here's Number One Son holding his birthday gift from mom & dad...



Haha! That's right! Another generation corrupted here at the Kingdom... Squirrels and rabbits beware!

This is my son with his very first rifle, a Savage Cub in .22LR. Bolt action, single shot with a peep sight and accutrigger.

He has shot my 10/22 before, but it's too heavy for him to keep the barrel up, so he has to shoot it from a bench rest. This one is much lighter, and he can hold it offhand. We had the opportunity to try out a Walther G22 the last time we were at the range, and with it's bullpup configuration, most of the weight of that gun is between the trigger and the rear of the stock so my boy could hold it up. However, that's a pretty expensive .22, and a semi-auto to boot. I preferred a single shot boltie for my son's first rifle...

We were out of town this weekend, so there was no opportunity to go to the range. We'll most likely be headed there Saturday.

Here's hoping his grandparents weren't too horrified...

The grandparents aren't the only ones terrified... Am I the only one disturbed by this?

Well, I think you're just going to have to get over it.
