Default Parents, I'm surprised how quiet this sub forum is

I know a bunch of us have kids, and for many of us shooting is a bonding thing. I'm actually surprised how quiet it is here considering how many of us there are. All things considered, we are kind of responsible for the next generation of shooters, and keeping the sport alive. It's a hard enough battle as it is. Do all you other parents find it harder and harder to shoot with your kids? Any why aren't you guys posting here more often?

My son has been busy with school, Boy Scouts, and Civil Air Patrol. I try to get him shooting 4x a month but it has been tough since the holidays. He also lost a few weekends being sick.

I'm not worried about him. He loves guns.

Spent a few hours shooting 2 weeks ago. Just my 13 yr old. I don't think I shot at all.

kids are getting older. Some love to shoot some dont.
BUT
They have all been taught to shoot and safe handling.
Went deer hunting with my youngest son and 20 yr old daughter last year.
Scheduling an elk hunt with my oldest son in October.
Working with an older daughter to get her CCW.
With 6 kids there was and is plenty of shooting going on.

My 9-year-old violin playing, ballet and tap dancing, daughter is just beginning on a .22 I got her a junior gun club membership so she can go to the youth events and take the junior classes. I have a feeling she'll be a better shot than her dad (who's a trained sniper for our county LE)

Her schedule is a challenge between her activities and visitation with her dad, who won't teach her or take her to shoot for some reason, so I'm hoping to pique her interest enough for her to want to make room for it.

Yeah time is an issue always. We play travel sports and barely have anytime for ourselves. The thing is all those people that told me it goes by so quick, were 100% right.

When we go to say Palm Springs, Big Bear, Mammoth, or any other road trip longer than a weekend I bring a 10/22 with us. My daughter loves it, wifey not so much but is understanding. Mainly because she has no idea what I spend on gun stuff.

Sebastopol Rifle & Pistol Club, Inc. has a youth PAL shooting league.

The kids meet 1 evening a week during the school year. The first half is with air rifles and the second half is with .22 club supplied rifles. Its a great program for our youth to learn how to be safe and shoot correctly. It is open to BOTH girls and boys and the instructors are absolutely wonderful with the kids.

I believe its for 13yr+ kids. I am sorry I can't recall the specific details. It been a long time since my son was shooting PAL.

1 out of 2 likes to shoot!
She shoots a 10/22, .243, & 20ga. She does real well at the range, and really likes the rim fire steel target range at Sac Valley. She started hunting with me last year and has been successful on dove & pheasant (shes hooked). We will be hunting deer in CA this year, and have an antelope hunt booked in WY.

Took my son out last Sunday. We have electronic ear pro and he is trained to listen for strangers. We heard a vehicle coming our way so he armed up and ran deeper into the range as he has been instructed. I waited and saw 2 pickups crest the hill that runs down our frontage and they stopped. A big guy got out and walked along the easement where we put up barbed wire and fencing to block off easy access to the property. Someone would have to walk the easement about 150 feet to get around the wire or just squeeze between the strands. Not meant for security, more of a reminder it is private property.

Turns out he is the owner of the land a bit north and moved back from Washington. He brought out a large family to shoot on his property and plans on turning it into a private campground/gun range like ours.
