You have set a young man onto a path that will bring him comfort and joy for the rest of his life. We need more like you and him (he?).

^^Agreed. I waited to comment until I'd seen a pic. Work internet filter blocks most pics The smile on his face is priceless. I truly hope my daughters want to hunt with me. GOOD STUFF!

20 gauge Mossberg pump w/red dot, these are nice little shotguns for small framed kids.
