Sizing Up the Rifles
Today, each of them were given a rifle and asked to lie in a prone position. The instructors set them up in a sling to hold the rifle while they shot. Then the boys were expected to load their own rifle (I did not even know they knew how to do that!) and shoot at the targets down range.
I will not say they are marksman just yet, but they shot well for their first time. The boys were just excited that they were able to hit the target!
So, it looks like we have a new project to keep us busy. I am glad the boys have this opportunity...I would not be able to do this on my own. They need to try this even if it is only for a year. We will see if it is the right project for them as the weeks go on.
