To say that my oldest child, Ella, loves to shoot, would be a minor understatement. She has been shooting with her Dad since she was seven or eight years old. I really cannot remember. She took to guns and shooting sports like a duck takes to water. She is happy with a gun. And very safe. She had such a good time in her hunter safety class she actually took the thing twice. And now she is spending the last two days in the day at the TN qualifiers for the Junior Olympics in Trap. I am so proud.
Today she has spent all day, in the rain shooting. Check out this video of her shooting Ella shooting Trap in the Rain.
And yes, I understand that guns can render injury. I work as an ED doctor. But people choose how to handle any weapons even cars and knives. I am proud that all my kids have had an excellent teacher in their dad and grandfather in how to handle guns and bows to be safe and to love hunting and the outdoors. I would far rather they be outside than sitting with a phone or gaming system.
