Target Practice

On Saturday we went out for some target practice. We all enjoy shooting!Shooting the Mauser - a German gun our grandfather found during WWII and gave to us.
The boys have been saving our old milk cartons for several months. They fill them with water and set them up on blocks of wood for targets.
It's a lot of fun to shoot at them because they make such a big "explosion".

The Mauser is a lot louder than our other guns.

Daddy and the boys are good shots and can hit the skeet. The rest of us have to shoot at still targets. :)

  1. Kat & John will love seeing this post, for they rec'd guns for Christmas...'Rossi' is all I remember about them.
    We gave Dad a gun safe...
    The day after Christmas they all went out to Aunt Faye's farm to shoot targets!
    I'm sure they'll be blogging about this soon. Although we're quite behind on blogging.

    Much love to you all, and Happy New Year!
