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.
