But Dads have a role, and it's important. And thus came yesterday when Missus JB had to work and I was home with the daughters, the weather was perfect, and I had a box of .22LR and some extra targets.
So we went to the range.
Spawn the Younger got a lever action Daisy BB gun for her birthday (pink, natch) and I have my trust Marlin Model 60 semi-auto 22, so after a quick stop at the hardware store for a second set of eye protection,
We went over the Four Rules several times on the drive down. I also told them what to do if they hear "Cold Range" and lastly pointed out that if I see them make a mistake, I'll mention it and they shouldn't get upset over it. "Shooting is a lot of fun, but nothing brings the fun to a halt faster than someone getting hurt."
After the range, we came back home and I made them pork fritters for lunch, then they had their year-end cheer recital.
Days don't get much better than that.
