Long time shooter / first time poster
I was raised with guns in the family - best thing my Dad ever did for me. Was out of shooting sports for a while but back in and wonder what kept me away for so long.
Anyway, suburban dad now, Boy Scout leader avid / rabid 2nd amendment defender.
I am "re-gearing".
I have longed for the mini-14 for quite a while and finally just got what I really wanted. I opted for the Mini Target with Thumbhole stock and it's a beauty. Not a single shot through it yet myself but am joining a sportsmans club with 100, 200 and 600 yd range.
I'm going to do for my son what my dad did for me and teach him to respect firearms, defend his right to own them and enjoy the sport. I got a nice bolt action Savage in .22 that my son will train on - similar to what he has been checked out on in at Boy Scout camp.
Glad I found this site, looking forward to lurking and leeching to get back up to speed.
