You'll shoot your eye out kid!

I got my son a Daisy 105 Buck BB gun for Christmas and he is almost as happy as I am about it.  he had shot at Cub Scout ranges before and at Big Papaw's house but now he has his own gun. While I don't know if he will ever have the sort of  obsession I have with putting meat on the dinner table he does enjoy shooting guns.  We set up a range in the yard today and shot for about an hour. That is what I call quality father and son time.  Being outside teaching my son about useful things such as marksmanship and safety and knowing he is enjoying it more than any silly video game fills my heart with love and my mind with hope for the future.
Happy New Year from the Envirocapitalist.


  1. Hey Gabe! That's awesome. I hope everything works out like you want. If you don't mind me saying, my kids didn't jump into my way of thinking very hard. I'm kind of disappointed. But they're still kids and hopefully they'll see the value of the things I'm trying to teach them.

    A good way to keep them shooting BB guns is to let them shoot at the rabbits out the back door near the garden. They love that! I don't think a rabbit has been harmed in this fun - yet.

  2. Thanks Owl, We love to eat rabbits but there is none around our house sadly. But is only a 30 minute drive to big papaws where I grew up and rabbits a plenty. So maybe my son will be responsible for rabbit stew one day.
