We decided to let my son try even though he's never really shot an actual gun. He shot 2 gophers in his first 2 shots - no misses and they were not close! So we have now named him "The Gopher Slayer" and he is available for hire if you need one - LOL!
I had him write the story in his own words - here it is:
We were in Montana visiting my Grandpa. We went out to visit my cousin once removed on his farm. We went out to shoot gophers and we saw one when we were in the truck and I wanted to shoot it. My Dad handed me a gun to shoot it with. I pointed the gun out of the window and aimed at the gopher. I shot at it and hit it.
Later we saw another one, we got out of the truck and my Dad handed me the gun. I aimed at the gopher and shot it. And we cut the tails off of them. I had fun. I liked shooting a gun.
I did spare you the pic we took of one of the dead gophers as I just don't think it goes well with all the pics of chocolate and tea around here - you're welcome!
Have a blessed day and hope to see you here tomorrow - I'll probably have another trip post!
