Cute kid!

I think he has the expression of just about everybody that I have seen shooting the M38 for the first time. I'll be sure and show this one to my buddies. Excellent!

That's great!! My Grandson is 5. He's been looking over my collection since he was 3. Good opportunity for me to teach him about gun safety etc. Won't be long before I'll have a new "range buddy" to shoot with.

Cool kid, proper safety, and good times! Perhaps get him some wrap-around goggles to go over the glasses and ear glugs that'll enable him better movement around the buttstock.

Congratulations on a great range buddy and thanks for the vids!

Great vids, only coment I have may be reminding him to keep finger off trigger utill he is rady to shoot, a couple of times with the M38 he is looking and talking to you with finger on trigger. Other than that it was great the interest he has taken.

Hey Mosinluver, Cut him some slack he is only 9. I have adult freinds that refuse to even shoot some of my Mosins.

My two sons went from the "BB" gun to a ruger 10/22 and in there teens to an sks. My youngest son said WOW after shooting the sks. I broke in my oldest son when he was 18 with the 30-06(hunting). The kid is shooting more accurate than i am now.

I also taught them to shoot no living thing unless there going to eat it. They shot soda cans and targets.

That look was priceless. Boys are great when they discover something new and wonderful.

Enjoy these years with your son. The memories will endure long after many others have faded...

I do keep reminding them about the trigger finger. I couldn't figure out why he stubbornly kept putting that booger hook up there and then I realized that 1 finger was "safe" to him. He shoots with 2 fingers. I still keep pointing it out to him so he doesn't get into a bad habit.

I'll be adding the vids of him shooting my 91/24 Carcano and French MAS-36, then his sister shooting the K31 and Yugo 24/47. I got them both shooting their new favorite; the M1 Carbine. I'm anxious for them to study WWII in school.

I started my Nieces 2 kids shooting last August at 11 & 12 yrs old. Going back up next week for the 4th time. I take different weapons up each time.
Here they are last yr - staged after we quit shooting - and with their Christmas presents.
She doesn't like the full size - 30/06, 8mm & 303 - military rifles, to much recoil, but does fine on everything else.
Start them young and teach them right!

Show me another picture of him freehanding it w/o recoil pad then i will be inpressed
We're all impressed with your spelling.


He's 9, the idea is to encourage him and make it enjoyable enough that he will not be able to get enough of it and then he brags to all his friends making them want to try shooting.

Or we use your method and take away his recoil pad and make him shoot Hungarian Yellow Tip until his shoulder turns purple and he says "Dad, this isn't fun any more, can I get my game boy out of the truck."

What will truly impress most of us will happen in another 9 years when he is old enough to buy his own rifle and he starts making his own trips to the range, dragging his buddies with him. That is where the future of our beloved sport lies.
