First Timers

Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

I just wanted to say how much I en­joyed Char­lie Portlock’s piece in the Novem­ber is­sue (page

88). I found it re­ally help­ful with en­cour­ag­ing my nine-year- old daugh­ter and my wife, Emily, to give shoot­ing a try.

We had a ‘fam­ily day out’ to my lo­cal gun club and both of them re­ally en­joyed them­selves, es­pe­cially my daugh­ter. That’s two more read­ers of Air Gun­ner in this house­hold. PETER S Hello Peter,

That’s great news, mate. I’ve done what I can to en­cour­age both of my kids and wife to get into shoot­ing. The key is not to force it on them, and, as you sug­gest, make it a fam­ily affair – most of all, make it fun!

If you skip to page 20 of this is­sue you’ll see that I have plans afoot to try to bring more kids into the sport, so please feel free to send in a fam­ily photo for the new ‘ Young Guns’ sec­tion. Ed.
