OK~ As a Mom to two boys, I've done a lot of things I never imagined I would do. I have never been a fan of guns, but I have learned to embrace them.
It was during our years of Cub Scouting that I was introduced to bb guns. Out of desperation for trained bb gun instructors, while attending Cub Scout Camp; I found myself in a training session for being a trained bb gun instructor for the Boy Scouts of America. And low and behold, for the next few week-ends I was booked for several day camps in the area. Yep, I was an official bb gun instructor for the Boy Scouts of America- and I had the papers to prove it.
Yes, I have shot his trap gun a couple times- and I am happy to report that I have hit "A" target.
I had no idea that there were so many different types of guns for shooting sports. I have learned to embrace guns, embrace the opportunity they have offered my son, and I see kids enjoying themselves in high school trapshooting. So....I will continue to embrace the life experiences my "almost" 17 year old son will toss my way and embrace them with open arms! What continues to amaze this Mom is that the "new" experiences that I think I will have, are always something different from what I have dreamed they would be. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
