Description
I have had this pistol Its a 40 cal S&W. I have had it since July and never had the chance to take it out and shoot. Today 3/9/2013 we went fishing and since its legal in Florida to open carry while fishing, I decided to fire off a few rounds me and son fired off 6 clips with 5 rounds apiece. He has never shot a firearm today was his first, He has never been next to a pistol firing or any firearm, he has always used high powered pellet rifles. Now he wants one of his own he told me today he is going to get a 45, we shall see after i get him to the range where he can try the 40 cal and a 45. I myself fired a 1911 in the military for 6 yrs I told him this one has a little less kick I will let him decide.

I would say nurture your sons natural abilities get him engrossed in the culture of firearms and impart all your worldly knowledge as I do with my stepson.
I have been shooting since 6yrs old I had shown my son his posture his grip his aim at looking down pistol and beyond is all important i told him once he gets the hang of that he will be drawing dry at frist then we shall try draw and fire
you are a Great dad to take you son, I do not say stepson because i feel if you take care of him and raise him he is your son. The other father unless he supports his child and takes him out to do the things you do with him was just a donor.
To get back to my son yes he is a natural All of us from my grandfather down to me all shot pistols at a very young age till the day we leave this earth I myself have been shooting since the age of 6 My son will learn his trigger discipline, barrel down range until it, is like riding a bike to him.
He will be ingrossed as you say with all I know and then some His friends he has a advid shooters I live in the south so it is a must you are either a hunter or fisherman but I have only come across both lol

Great job, he will appreciate this for a long time. Work on his trigger, safety, and muzzle discipline next. Teach him well and one day you will be shooting with your grandson.

One of these drills involved B2 bombers, which took off from Missouri, flew to Korea, dropped dummy ammunition on a South Korean range, and returned. The bombers did not land in korea, they made a 6,500 miles round trip without stopping.

"On March 16, 2013, my son and I were hiking along country roads among pastures and fields with my 15-year old son to help him earn his hiking merit badge. I always enjoy these father/son hikes because it gives me time alone with my son. As I always do when we go on these hikes and walks, I took my trusty rifle with me as there are coyotes, wild hogs, and cougars in our area. In Texas, it is legal to openly carry a rifle or shotgun as long as you do so in a manner that isn't calculated to cause alarm. In other words, you can't walk around waving your rifle at people. I always carry my rifle slung across my chest dangling, not holding it in my hands. At about the 5 mile mark of our hike, a voice behind us asked us to stop and the officer motioned for us to approach him. He got out of his car and met us a few feet later. He asked us what we were doing and I explained that we were hiking for my son's merit badge. He then asked me what I'm doing with the rifle, to which I responded in a calm manner, "Does it matter, officer? Am I breaking the law?" At that point, the officer grabbed my rifle without warning or indication. He didn't ask for my rifle and he didn't suggest he would take it from me. He simply grabbed it. This startled me and I instantly pulled back - the rifle was attached to me - and I asked what he thought he was doing because he's not taking my rifle. He then pulled his service pistol on me and told me to take my hands off the weapon and move to his car, which I complied with. He then slammed me into the hood of his car and I remembered I had a camera on me (one of the requirements of the hiking merit badge is to document your hikes). This video is the rest of that encounter. Up to this point, I am not told why I am being stopped, why he tried to disarm me, or even that I'm under arrest. We did not set out that Saturday morning to "make a point" or cause problems. Our goal was to complete a 10-mile hike and return home without incident. My son chose a route that away from populated areas but near our home. The arresting officer is Officer Steve Ermis and the supervisor is Sergeant Minnicks of the Temple Police Department. If you agree this was a gross act of exceeded authority, please help me fight these charges" http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/2nd-amendment-legal-defense-fund

The Armed Aerial Scout program replaces the previous Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter program. An Analysis of Alternatives is underway and a Request for Proposals is planned to be issued in 2014. The U.S. Army had until December 2012 to decide whether to proceed with the program. On 29 November 2012, Army officials decided to proceed with the Armed Aerial Scout program to acquire a new scout helicopter. On 8 January 2013, the Army began redrafting the presentation for the service's vice chief of staff before they move ahead with a competition. Vice Chief of Staff General Lloyd Austin III requested more data from the voluntary flight demonstrations done on helicopter entries, as well as taking into account the pace of other technologies, such as unmanned capabilities and future sensors
