Hey, we had a GREAT time!
John got to try out a couple of my .44 Magnums; a custom finished Ruger SuperRedhawk and my Desert Eagle. He noticed that the DE44 was much smoother than the revolver --- same ammo but different kind of recoil impulse.
We got the .22'* out next and my youngest daughter drilled the bullseye with her first shot! Cool.
My oldest daughter tried the Ruger 10/22 for her first time shooting an 'adult' sized rifle. She liked the part where all you have to do is keep pulling the trigger --- not load one/shoot one...
For those that are interested, EVERY time my daughters go to the range with me, they are required to state the Four Rules of Gun Safety before they can even pick up their little .22 rifles.
I bought each of them a single-shot Marlin .22 rifle for their 7th birthdays.
It pays off to have them understand the safety aspect first, and the natural curiosity is satiated so they'll know what to do if they are around firearms or someone that isn't familiar with them.
I'm proud of them both for being safe and good shooters.
It was a lot of fun at the range, but we needed to go out and do Bonneville Forum stuff, too.
I was impressed with John'* SSE. Nice ride, and as he said, it was my first time behind the wheel of a supercharged model.
It was strangely familiar, but more exciting, kind of like your girlfriend after a boob job!
"Hey, this feels good --- no --- BETTER!"
The exhaust note was excellent and it was interesting that his car was a 'family' car, bought by his Grampa.
Also, the mileage was about double mine, so I'm encouraged about maintaining the car and seeing how many miles I can get out of it.
I would like to have a supercharged Bonneville someday.
All in all, a lot of fun today.
We'll have to do this again sometime soon, John.
