Summertime At The Gun Club In Iowa

OK~ It is summertime and in Iowa our summers are often short and sweet. Yes, this Mom has learned to embrace her hubby and son's love of guns. Shooting sports are no different than any other sport. They take time, patience, and practice.

Our local gun club had a fun day last Saturday and it was just that. Father and Son sharing an experience they are both passionate about.

The skies were blue, the temps were close to triple digits; yet it was a good day! Check out that bright orange target.

Dad can shoot!

And here we go...Yes, that would be my son, the one sporting the shirt that says "Beer Police!" Gotta love it.....Father/Son having a fun day at the gun club.

Shooting Clay Targets At The Ventura Gun Club

When our boys were younger, this Mom hit the local swimming pool every day during those hot, summer days! As they have matured and grew up, our activies have changed. Trap shooting has been a life changing experience for our seventeen year old son. Trap shooting has taught him responsibility, taught him to be patient, and most of all he gets to hang around with old guys (and gals)  that love to talk about guns. He is allowed to be a teenage boy and be surrounded with some great role models.

What types of activities do you do with your kids in the summer? I remember while sitting on the side of the swimming pool about five years ago and one Mom said, "I wonder what we will be doing for summer fun when our kids are older?" For this Mom, it's been the local gun club. Quite frankly, it was not what I envisioned! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. My husband loves trap and skeet shooting too. We actually do it at our home on Sunday afternoons often as a family.


I always love feedback on my blog!
