Whilst we're all worried about the imminent demise of shooting, and the lack of new blood if you'll pardon the pun, I picked this up today:
My pair, 8 and 10 have been badgering me to "join in with daddy", so I took them to Shooting Supplies in Bromsgrove who let them try a couple of rifles until we found one they could both (just) handle. Little 6lbft Crosman Raven, and they've had an utter whale of a time blatting tin cans this afternoon and were most disappointed when the sun went down and brought it to and end.
So there is hope yet! Eldest can start shooting at school this year, but she asked to learn with me first so when she goes to the range she's already better than the boys! Bless.
