Kids Are The Best!

The Carmi Rifle Club hosted Brownell's NRA Day on June 2, and everyone had a good time, learning firearm safety and shooting a large variety of rifles, pistols, and shotguns.

We had Dum-Dum suckers set up at 50 feet, and the kids were busting those for a great time. They would then move out to a 3" x 4" plate at 75 yards. They kept this challenging target swinging.

Kids were also busting clay pigeons at the 100 yard berm. After they had the holdover figured out they could hit fragments of the clay pigeons.  Their parents had a good time watching the kids hit targets like pros. Parents and grandparents shot too, but working with kids and all of the enthusiasm they bring is an extra joy.

The paint got knocked off the Appleseed target in short order!

Looks like a good time was had by all.
I will file away the cheek pad idea, sooner or later I will need to do something like that and I won't have to reinvent the wheel.
