    Congrats to the kid, keep it up!!

    Were you on the line with him or watching?

    I get caught up watching my kid shoot while on the line with him. Sort of slows things up but "what the hell", it is worth it.

    I remember my first 25, it was about 35 years ago. (WOW, it dosen't seem that long ago). An older friend talked me into shooting ATA, and during my first 16 yard event I got my first 25. I was hooked. My thoughts then were: "with that much shooting, good things were bound to happen".

    My Dad didn't shoot. I can only imagine you and yours sons joy at this accomplishment. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    "but somethings just not right about beatin' your old man"

    You'll get used to it. I best my old man every time we head out. To his credit he's not much of a shooter, but he's a great shot. He prefers hunting and has never found the love of the shooting sports that I have. He always blames the wind, the sun, his gun, etc. I think he enjoys watching me beat him though. Knowing that we're both giving our all and he taught me everything I know.

    I'm just glad I inherited his natural born shooting skill.
