Sunday Family Shoot - Mardi Gras Edition

The weather was beautiful and the family was assembled, so the only thing to do was shoot.  We were shooting wax bullets in the back yard, which is a magnificent way to teach young shooters.  Even the kids got a chance to shoot, with their fathers providing backstop safety.

PawPaw at the rail, son Joey providing hands-on instruction, grandson Elyas  learning to shoot.

Son, Matthew, coaching grandson Lucas.  Ypu'll notice all the kids have eyes and ear protection.

Son, Barrett and granddaughter Jaida.  PawPaw, of course, providing support at the rail.  After the young kids were through shooting, the sons and teenagers wanted to strap and do a few quick matches.

Grandson Ethan in PawPaw's hat, (the sun is bad this time of day) and grandson Jeffrey in the silly hat.  It's Mardi Gras, after all, and silly hats are de rigeur.  They were coming off the line.  Jeffery had a very good day, shooting in the 7s and no Xs.

Son, Matthew in a goofy hat.  Not exactly CFDA compliant, but my Sunday Family Shoots are not CFDA events.  Of course, all the safety rules apply, but we bend the dress code a bit.

Grandson Jeffrey and soon Barret on the line.  More goofy hats.  That's how we roll at PawPaw's house during Mardi Gras on the Sunday Family Shoot.
