    I was thinking about brand new target shooters and ways to try and help them out. I reflected back on my own childhood with my dad and my old Marlin 60 .22lr rifle (everyone has had one of those!), and how my dad helped me when I was a kid. So, I got creative again in Photoshop and made a new target designed for brand new shooters. Feel free to download this, print it out on white cardstock paper, and take your kid out target shooting, take your grandson out shooting with a little .22 rifle like everyone has back in the day. Keep the tradition going...

    What do you think of this idea for a target (complete with a confidence boosting message at the top)??

    Thanks, I had the idea of a funny message at the top, like those NFL segments on ESPN a few years ago when they'd have those hilarious "C'mon man" clips! LOL... :D

    Very nice, Butch! And I really like the “Keep the tradition going” thing!

    Good deal Butch! Thanks for sharing. It should help my grandson. He’s using his BB gun on the range I made him in the basement. He’s ten but he tends to over think it. He’ll aim and aim for so long you can see him trembling. Maybe if he just concentrates on keeping it inside the 7 ring, he won’t try to be so fine.

    I still have mine (well, now it's owned by my daughter, who (at age 16) outshot me with it back in the day!).
