I was so honored when I was asked to be a guest poster on this amazing blog. I thought long and hard about what I would write about. I knew that it had to be something close to my heart. What is closer than girls and guns?
This year, something amazing is set to happen. The very first “Take Your Daughter to the Range” Day. On June 9, 2012, ranges everywhere will open their doors to find fathers and their daughters lining up to shoot together. There is even a Facebook page dedicated to this day. Not expecting the speed of the growth and support of what is hoped to be an annual event, the folks behind this event appear to be giddily overwhelmed and working diligently to keep up.
At my house, time spent at the range is family time. My children, husband, and I have so much fun at the range. It is a time for learning and for some healthy competition. I especially enjoy time spent teaching my daughter.
My suggestion, my challenge to you: encourage someone to make this a part of their day. Encourage someone to take their daughter, take your own daughter…heck, take a niece, a granddaughter, a cousin to the range. Most importantly, let’s make this more than just a father/daughter deal? Let’s make this a chance for mothers to get to the range with their daughters.
Teach them safety, teach them strength, teach them that a firearm is to be respected and not feared…most of all, TEACH THEM. Spend time with someone you love at the range on June 9th!
