Work it out to celebrate that independence, every way you can! I just taught a new shooter and got her to fire her first hits. Tiny Japanese girl + hits with Daisy Red Ryder bbgun = the sound of liberty bell's ring...

I worked with three of my nephews (10, 12, 14) - one each from three of my siblings - on shooting .22 handguns. They were good enough to graduate to Glock 19 - not the most "shootable" handgun on the planet.

Everybody got hits, and everyone had fun. I love my little pistol range out back behind the barn with a big berm and steel targets.
