If I were hunting terrorists or transported to the world of The Walking Dead, I might be inclined to hang with the kid on the left rather than his dad. Kneepad Dad looks rock solid, but that boy’s got some serious ‘tude. I’m blessed with four girls. Only one of which lives with me – and she’s not the one who’s partial to firearms. In fact, the gun-ho girl lives in the firearms-free paradise known as Britain. Oh well. I get plenty of vicarious pleasure from watching other young boys and girls get to grips with guns…safe, smiling and serene. Talking to their moms and dads, I’ve learned that the majority of these young ‘uns . . .
are better shots than their parents. I think it has to do with the technology. Back in the day, before adjustable stocks were the norm and handguns were hardly handy, kids struggled with shooting. Not many children were fortunate enough to have access to “youth model” guns. These days, Crickets abound, there are compact shotguns aplenty and soft shooting ARs are everywhere. But what do I know? Are your kids better shots than you? If so, how great is that?
