Why we win

This past weekend, some friends and family headed out to the range. My son, who is five, had only shot a suppressed 22 rifle before but he wanted to shoot the AR-15. Given that the TemplarCustom rail makes it a bit too heavy for a a five year old, the solution would be to shoot prone from a rest. But it was wet and muddy so plan B was I got to be his bipod:

Watch that grin right after the first shot and how eager he is to fire the second shot. That’s why we win. Shooting is fun and it puts grins on people’s faces, no matter their age.

    Awesome video and even though he’s just a little guy that memory may just stick with him for a long time.

  2. Josh Says:

    That was awesome.

    I love that smile. Every time I see that, even if I don’t know the shooter, it makes my day.

  4. GmBH Says:

    I just felt a tremor in the force, as if the dreams of millions of Brady-tyrants suddenly were extinguished.

    Dangit, now my cheeks hurt.

    That was so cute! Love it!

    Love that video!

    Also this is impossible without a collapsible stock which is illegal in Massachusetts.

    Making children smile is illegal here. This is the purpose of their laws.

    Man if you could have pulled that trigger faster he would have! Thats awesome! I can’t wait to have that day with my boy.

    I like how that finger was off the trigger until it was time to shoot! That’s some good parenting right there!

  11. SayUncle Says:

    Thanks. That and the nudge as he tries to go look at his target.

  12. Jim Says:

    Made me remember shooting with my son. And my dad. Tear’d me right up.
    Thanks alot.

    You have no idea how much I want to be a like that as father when I have kids.

  14. DirtCrashr Says:

    Good Daddy, have a cup of coffee! I’m jealous we don’t have any kids to share that with. The EOTECh has got to be a winner in the event too.

    Soooooo, who want to send this off to Joan et. al.? good parents deserve recognition after all 🙂

    actually scratch that. Joan would recognize him by calling CPA. . . they are not graceful losers.

    Your kid is jerking the trigger. Plus, what’s with the goofy stance? AR-15s are for sissies anyway. Why isn’t he shooting an AR-10? WHAT KIND OF FATHER ARE YOU!?!?!?!?!?

    Seriously, very cool video. I hope Joan sees it.

  17. 45er Says:

    That is so great. He can’t get enough of it. I love the smile.

    Awesome. The Troy TRX Extreme (now the Alpha) is a great forearm for kids as its super light and small in diameter. PRI carbon fiber forearms are also a great choice as pretty much nothing is lighter.
