Cleaning the 853's

I've been a Shawnee County (Kansas) 4-H Shooting Sports air rifle instructor for about 15 years now. It's enjoyable working with youth on a project they really like. I see all types of kids with all types of other interests, but on our shooting nights we share an interest in target shooting. We get a couple chances a year to shoot in competitions with other counties and the kids get to meet their peers. I get to watch them grow in both age and abilities. I may be an empty-nester but I still have my kids.

Great sketch. It is wonderful that you are sharing activities with children. They keep you young at heart.

I had a pretty good idea what a Daisy would be when mentioned with the cleaning rod! My dad also used to teach this to our local boyscout troops. Wonderful job!

Nice sketch and I loved the journal with that..I really didn't know what Daisy was until I landed here

Great sketch and a great subject, too. Our neighbor is an instructor for our 4H group. When my husband bought a shotgun for my birthday 2 years ago, we went to our friend and had him go through the whole safety program with us and our sons. A lot of great information!
