Hunting season has finally arrived. Knowing it is always wise to sight in your gun and check it out ahead of time, Dad decided to get our his muzzleloader, 44, and 308 last weekend for some target practice as a family. James and Dad made a target and nailed it up about 50 yards behind the barn. Then we opened fire!
Both Jonathan and David’s shots were remarkable! I didn’t really do that great, but overall everyone did very well. Dad and Michael agreed that of the 25 or so shots we fired, almost all of them would have brought down the deer.
We were all grateful for the opportunity to familiarize ourself with Dad’s firearms, prepare for hunting season, and just enjoy the thrill of pulling that trigger. We were also reminded of how fortunate we are to be able to exercise the freedom granted us in the 2nd amendment, and how thankful we should be for its supporters.
