We used to run a nice youth program at USI, called The Musketeers. Micheal Pass was in charge (may he rest in peace), and I was one of the coaches. We ran a lot of children through that program, and got them started right.

Very well done sir!
Coaching our younger generation is an absolute must. Sometimes I’m fortunate to provide instruction, weapons, and ammunition to properly orient young folks headed off to boot camp, so they at least have some familiarity with the basics of safety, gun handling, and marksmanship. It is a great way for us “old guys” to contribute, as often the younger folks may not have the financial means to practice much.
Oh yes, time flies too fast!
