Lucky you. I had daughters, but now I have grandsons. I had to wait an extra generation but this is what makes life enjoyable. Cherish all the moments with your son, he'll always remember them.

"Growing up with rimfires..?" All is as it should be!
Keep up the good work... He can raise his boys the same way. No doubt he will tell his children how precious it was to spend the time growing up with his dad!

Great job Dad! The time spent with our sons shooting, hunting and fishing seem to be what we treasure the most.

I miss those days with my son. He is now 44 yrs. old an is raising boys of his own. However, his 11 year old daughter has three deer to her credit, with one good enough for the wall.

It sure looks like you spent a lot of quality time with your son. You are a wise man, because you can never get that time back.

and a smile in every picture too . . .

. . . I hope he's having as much fun learning and shooting as you are teaching. Nice job sir - both of you are fortunate to have each other!

What M2HB said is correct - you can't make up for lost time.

I have no children of my own, but that montage brought back some very good memories and kudos to you for raising them in the shooting sports. The more we can give the bug to now, the more we have to fight the clowns on capitol hill when they come out with their next great idea on how to control guns.
