Thread: Birthday/Father's Day fun. (Not about stalking.)

    Birthday/Father's Day fun. (Not about stalking.)

    It is Father's Day today in the U.S. and also it happened to be my birthday, so my son and I decided to go for an afternoon shoot with our revolvers at the local range. I was shooting my blued Model 27 Smith and Wesson .357 magnum and he was shooting his S&W Highway Patrolman .357 built on the same magnum frame.

    We were both shooting well from the 18 yard mark and getting cocky, decided to shoot at a couple of playing cards from an over sized deck I keep around for fun targets with the .22 rifles. We decided to see who could hit the mark in the middle of the cards with the least amount of shots. He shot the Ace of Hearts, and I the Ace of Clubs. The targets are below.

    What was even more funny than us hitting the mark on our first shots was when we overlapped the targets.

    You can see that the bullet holes darned near overlap! Like father, like son I guess! We both got a good laugh over it. It was a great ending to a great day. ~Muir

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    Looks like the pep talk I gave that boy did some good
