I took my 10 year old daughter out for her first shoot with her new Stevens Favorite. She managed to get 25 rounds downrange before the deerflies drove us away. She really enjoyed it. I was hoping to leave her with some sort of 'legacy' before I croaked. Shooting and reloading are about the only interests I have to pass along. Grandson, one each, is only 1, but I am sure he will enjoy shooting, too.
