We went to the gun show today. Our first, especially as a family. We saw displays of everything from collectibles to gun magazines, taffy snacks, folding knives, flack jackets, guns, rifles, blowguns, target practice, life insurance (attention mr cheney), books, gun training, mountain man snacks, belt clips, and just about everything in between.
It was almost overwhelming. Actually, after about an hour, our Tween couldn't handle it any more. Meanwhile, before the meltdown, we saw some great info and possible items to go into our special box.
We did come away with three blow-guns and ammo and practice parts for those. Oh, and I bought some pepper spray. Then, as we were making our way to the door, we found a practice "range" with a laser-sighted rifle. Just happened to be run by Hubby's friend. We paid our money, and all three of us tried our hand. Tween had never even picked up a gun, and shot 90% of what he aimed for. I hadn't shot since a B-B-Gun 35 years ago but shot about 95% of what I aimed for. Hubby didn't do quite as well. We came away knowing (1) we need to encourage more of this activity with Tween because of the immediate high from shooting such a great percentage, (2) we need practice to get better, and (3) we need more equipment of different varieties.
Did anyone else in the Metro Denver area go?
