Took my nephew to the range today

Yep, he is now a BP convert.
He was a little shy initially, but after his first 5 shots, he was all into it.

Good job! I swear, once you take a kid shooting and teach them safe and responsible gun handling, they'll never turn into an anti-gun liberal.

Good for you (and him).   That's the only time I've witnessed a BP revolver being used at an indoor range.

Gator Guns and Archery in West Palm Beach are extremely friendly folks and they allow BP in their rifle range because it has good ventilation.  They ask me to stop shooting once in a while to let the smoke clear up.

Great time for all! A few years ago, my grandson was visiting. He was already a good shooter, but a bit leery of the 44 Remmie. After his first shot, he wanted me to take pictures so he could send them to friends, had a grin that wouldn't
stop.

The future looks hopeful.

Even in California there are many young chaps who are BP rifle and pistol shooters, some girls too. I know several. Many are quite knowledgeable and crack shots.  Most have modern weapons too.  They restoreth my faith in the future.

That’s a good pic of the young fellow.  He seems rather pleased with the whole deal.  He has the look of a life-long convert.  You did good, Steam.
