A Patriot's Independence Day

I had a fun if not hot and humid Independence Day with my friends and a few family members. We gathered at our private rifle range way out yonder with BBQ, watermelons, and firearms. If there is a finer way to celebrate our nation's birthday by exercising our Second Amendment rights, eating watermelons and fine wood smoked meats you'd better yell and let me know. 

Above, our range. It's located on a river that's just beyond the tree line.

The birth of a new Patriot. We gave a clinic for several children on firearms handling and safety. This is this young mans first rifle shot with instruction given by his father.

Proud father and his fifteen year old daughter with an AR15. Her father used a .22 conversion kit to increase the fun value.

Shooting instruction by Dad with a custom built Ruger 10/22.

I hope all of you had a great Independence Day too. Oh, and by the way, the fourth of July is a date - the holiday we hold dear is Independence Day.
