My dad was in law enforcement for over 20 years, so there have always been guns in the home- with strict safety rules in place. My thirteen year old niece is showing an interest in target shooting, so who better to teach her than her Papa. Hmm, that gives me a cool Christmas present idea.
A great way to practice shooting and learn safety rules is with a bb gun. Daisy educates roughly one million of America’s youth a year through their Ten Lesson Shooting Curruculum about BB gun use and safety (found here: http://www.daisy.com/forms/Ten_Lesson_Curriculum_for_Shooting_Education_2013.pdf). Their educational curriculum has been around since 1948.
Time to go shopping, woo-hoo! Bass Pro Shop is a fun place to shop, especially this time of year when Santa’s Wonderland makes an appearance.
I chose the Daisy 880 model with scope for Nichole. Goggles, bb’s, and pellets were included.
Gotta’ have something to shoot at, so what could we use for target practice? Small splatter targets are just the right size to make Christmas ornaments. We glued them to heavy cardstock and punched a hole in the top for hanging.
A Christmas tree target!
I loved watching my dad give Nichole gun safety instruction. Safety on until ready to fire. Finger off trigger until ready to fire. Stay aware of surroundings at all times, and keep gun pointed away from people and animals.
Papa shows how it’s done. Glasses or safety glasses at all times.
Nichole gives it a shot. Ha, get it?!
She’s a natural, the only one to hit the bull’s eye. Wow, see the one on the lower branch, too?!
Fun, huh? We all had a blast- fresh air, bonding, family traditions extended. Methinks a Daisy BB Gun was a genius Christmas gift idea.
