Live Fire Range

So I took my daughters to the range last weekend for some work with an AR15 Bushmaster...they didn't do too bad considering this target was the first set of mags and the first time they used an AR15 with an el cheapo truglow red dot at 50 yards.

They also got in some time with the hand guns...a glock 22 (kinda big for them, but they did good), 40 cal and a 380. Trying to prepare them for the dating (or Zombie) world coming up in the next few years! lol.

Here is my three after a 3 hour long escapade of shooting in the mountains. We were using RRA 5.56, Romanian AK47 and not pictured 6.5 Grendel . Its amazing, and probably hard for some to believe, but when we started shooting as a family last year, my girls were already very accurate with there shots. Accuracy to the point , the older one was shooting lids off of plastic soda bottles consistent at 25 yards with a .22 . I can only guess, that the accuracy came from playing MW2.

Yea , I agree, I want my girls prepared for apocalypse or even hunting if need be .

The Ak was picked up at Hillsville VA flea Market a few months back. It is a Romanian which I had heard was one of the top 3 or 4 made . The only negative is it is a single stack and finding the magazines has proved very difficult.It is so fun to shoot.

Yea, they try to look serious, they think they are tough. The very next picture however shows they are just monkeying around having fun.
I recommend safe range time for everyone. Although I may be a little hard on them on the "range" it is some of the most fun we have as a family. I guess it is the undistracted, serious and competitive nature of shooting. We were there for just over 3 hours, no cell service, no TV, no friends, and I didn't hear one time a "daddy Im bored" or the like. Pretty Special!

Good work guys. I learnt at a younger age than them. So important to not be afraid of guns.

That's actually an umarex H&K lic'd copy of the SD in .22, like the GSG but all metal and feels like it's 9mm relative.

The 10-22 I got her was the bone stock standard, until we put the M1 carbine tribute stock on it

I know they are spendy, but give an EOTech a try. I had one on my AR-15 & it was sweet!

Yeah I have other scopes, but I tend to be a iron sights kinda guy. This one came with my Ghost Cross bow so I thought I'd throw it on without worry.

I'm on the fence about building up an AR10 or an AR15, been getting the itch as of late. I used to shoot a lot when i lived back in St. Louis but haven't shot much at all since moving to the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia.. I'm leaning more towards the AR15 since i can get a .22 upper for it and let the kids have fun at the range, but i love sending .308 waaay down range. decisions, decisions..

With that SE7 you've got lots of room to store fire arms...buy them all! Well at least the uppers...

If I could do it all over again I'd get an AR10 - its just a more versatile round IMO.
