National Take Your Daughter to the Range Day
NTYDTTRD ^ | June 15, 2013 | NTYDTTRD

Posted on 06/15/2013 10:24:34 AM PDT by ConservativeInPA

NTYDTTRD was founded in Jan 2012 to promote firearms safety and education, as well as family bonding through participation in an exciting and fun sport. Our inaugural event was held Jun 9, 2012, with 37 ranges in 15 states participating. It took thousands of volunteers, sponsors and supporters but it was worth it to see the smiles on the faces of the kids and the parents.

We started with a focus on Daughters and an opportunity for Dad’s to take their girls to the range and quickly evolved into Sons and Moms, too! The name hasn’t changed, but we encourage the whole family to shoot together. It is a great opportunity to teach the kids safe handling skills, expose them to shooting sports which they may enjoy for the rest of their lives, and do something together!

The annual event will be held the 3rd Sat in June. We hope you will consider hosting or participating in an event near you.

My daughter has been looking forward to going shooting all week. It's a beautiful day in central PA: low humidity, blue sky with puffy white clouds, and in the 70's. So its time to load the truck up and go to the range for some father/daughter fun.

My daughter (13) and I shot our State Championship of Cowboy Action Shooting last weekend. I was a terrific daddy/daughter weekend of shooting.

I sent a link to this to my son in law as a reminder. He replied that 15 days old is probably rushing things a bit.

I took my daughter shooting on Wednesday, and the whole family is going out on Sunday, too (along with another family).

Well, I took my daughter last year. I don’t where she is today and I didn’t ask her so I guess I miss this year. I think I will take my G17 with it’s new Ghost Ultimate 3.5 lb Trigger Kit and 25 cent trigger polish job to the range and see if it still shoots reliably or at all.

“Why not just kid... we’re egalitarian”

Absolutely. I have actually won over a couple of anti gunners by taking them out shooting. As a bonus, I also now have a picture of a female lib schoolteacher holding an evil black rifle that I can blackmail her with!

There are two types of ranges you should take your daughter to:

Any ideas on where I can pick up ammo?

The ammo situation is getting better and better around here. I went to my favorite gun shop this morning and shelves are starting to look half full. A month ago they were picked clean. This morning, they didn't have .380 Auto which my wife shoots, but they had a bunch of ammo cans full of 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .223/5.56 and .308/7.62.

I mostly reload so I was looking for powder and primers. They had their best stock of primers all year - bricks and bricks of CCI small and large pistol and rifle primers, even #41 for 5.56mm NATO. (I haven't seen that in a long, long time on a store shelf).

I am hoping that things are starting to settle down. I know a lot of people jump on any ammo or reloading components that they see. It gets to the point that the folks hoarding are either running out of money or have multi-year supplies. I'd be happy if I could depend on running to the gun shop anytime I want and get a brick of .22 lr for plinking with the kids. The 'anytime' is only about half the time lately.

I’ve been thinking of trying Cowboy Action, especially seeing the Founder’s Ranch (End of Trail) is 6 miles from my house.

Right now I just shoot at their sporting clays range.

I learned something interesting today.

First, apparently the Girl Scouts of America do not allow the girls to go to shooting ranges. No guns. No badges associated with guns.

Second, apparently the Boy Scouts, who do allow gun shooting, have a policy against ANY games that involve “shooting” at each other, like laser tag, or water pistols — BECAUSE they allow real shooting, and don’t want kids to equate the two.

The Girl Scouts, because they don’t allow any real shooting, are allowed to do events like laser tag.

What an odd world we live in.

What an odd world we live in.

Both the Girl Scouts and the Boy Scouts have gone progressive. Progressives lack all sense of logic. That makes it seem odd. My wife was briefly involved with the Girl Scouts with our daughters. Let's just say, they tried it and didn't like, along with several other families, so they left the Girl Scouts.

My daughters grew up playing with dolls and girly things, as well as squirt and toy guns. When they were old enough, and expressed an interest, they were taught to shoot real guns. The same is true about hunting. They didn't have a choice about fishing, that started very young, but they still like to go fishing.

All of this is pretty typical around here. My daughters have plenty of friends, both male and female, that enjoy shooting. At the same time, my daughters are still girls, err ladies.

Working this weekend. But there is a family range day in the near future (next week). My daughter needs another chance to out shoot her brother, but he’s been practicing....

We should have a national, “take someone who does not shoot or is not trained in firearms” to the range day.

Agreed. Or just out of general habit. I make the offer semi-regularly to friends that do not shoot.
