My son texted me at work Monday - “Hey Mom, wanna go to the range one night this week after work?” I had one evening open, so we went to the range on Tuesday so he could shoot his AR and I could do some more training with my carry… and shoot his AR.
I like shooting with my son (15) as well (usually trap and .22LR)……I like shooting with my daughter (13) when she gets behind the AR15…(she’s naturally scary accurate with it and has this little giggle she does when she see’s her 1/4 MOA grouping compared to my 2 MOA)……there are a couple of RSOs I like shooting with as well……
But honestly…my favorite is me, myself, and I ………I like being focused going through the drills in my head and just being in the zone in general. I guess I’m weird that way. When I’m on the line I’m like that kid in Christmas story…don’t bother me, I’m thinking…lol.
Wow, who is my favorite to shoot with? I’d probably say my son because we don’t get many opportunities with him in northern OH and me in Louisville. I shoot more alone than with others because of convenience. I will often drop in for 100 rounds whenever I pass near the range which happens fairly often on my way back from several county courthouses. And I’m usually the best dressed there . Other than my son, I love making an evening of it with my wife, my brother (from another mother) and his wife and then going out for dinner and drinks at our favorite restaurant/bar right down the street. And then there’s a night out with guys from church at the range and out for a beer.
I love to shoot with my sons. Both still need some training, so I feel like a FATHER
If they are not available (work, college) I like to shoot with my first trainer (former military and LEO, so I can still learn from him).
My wife. When she will go, and others are there, it’s entertaining to hand her a big revolver and the looks on their others faces. (She’s 5’3). Then, they see her shoot, and they aren’t smiling anymore, it’s more of an open jaw thing.
The range I go to is an out door range, and when I go, there is usually no one there, and I enjoy that. But there have been times I’ve gone to the range, and met strangers and had a great time with “new friends”.
