It’s a special time in a young mans life to learn the fundamentals of marksmanship, trigger safety and how and why a well timed bayonet charge is still important in modern society.

I like you target thing you built.  Much less trashy then what I put up.

Started my shooting carer in fields and woods around the cray area with Gat guns and air rifles. Only got two grandchildren who show a interest in our sport one will have my 1970 HW35E 22 . They can wait I am still plinking away with it used to be able to take a air rifle anywhere now to many rules.

i did much the same bottletop bill it was not unusual for one of us to have a gat gun or a catapult with us as kids  happy days indeed 

i went to stay with my cousin in camberley when i was about 10 and we went over the back to the army ranges and climbed over the live range  (as you do when you are stupid)  i came across a complete band of live bullets and wore them round my neck and shoulder like a mexican bandit  when i took them home my dad said you can keep them but they stay indoors (i dont know if he was going to get rid of them) of course as soon as he went out i went round all my mates houses wearing it the police stopped me after a few hours and took them off of me with a rollocking   could you imagine what they would do now 😄🤣

But on the plus side for you, we can't chuck our kids out in the back yard with a semi-automatic assault rifle just to get a bit of peace for half an hour 😆
