nicely done! Especially for his first IDPA match. Definitely looks like he’s not new to shooting.
LOL - He could have beaten me at basketball when he was 12.He almost beat me on 2 stages.... It's like when your boy can beat you 1:1 on the basketball court.... But way cooler.
I definitely don't want Aaron shooting at me... More than i can say for some of my co-workersLOL - He could have beaten me at basketball when he was 12.
I bought a dueling tree a few years ago. It really changed our range trips. Nothing like a little competition to bring out the best in us. I always think... " I wouldn't want him shooting at me"
A couple years ago my son and I were out doing some football stuff. Any time we go out, I have him finish with a 40 yard dash. I told him to line up, and I got a long sigh. It was hot and we had been working pretty hard. I told him I'd line up with him, that we'd do the full 100 yards and that "I'm going to smoke your ass!!" I was pretty confident in that statement. I run about 20 miles a week, lots of speed work etc. Well, I'm not sure at what point it was, but I thought to myself, while running "Am I really running as hard as I can?!" I was, and suffice to say I didn't smoke his ass!! He was 11 years old at the time!Wait till he starts kicking your ass at the gym. He sent me a text last night. " New max on bench press 275lbs".
I haven't tried to find my max on the bench in a long time but know I better bring new underwear if I go for anything close to 250.
The two thoughts I had were " Damn, at 17 he is officially stronger than me" and " I will never lift another couch or move furniture again"
When I was a high school senior they put a huge emphasis on strength training and we lived in the gym. I was one of three kids in the 300 club, but the other two kids were shorter and had shorter arms, so I used to tell them it was easier for them.
It's those friggin Flintstone vitamins and all the steroids in the meat!Recently we were messing around about how he's almost as tall as me, which isn't much in height for me, but for a 13 year old is pretty good. I replied "Just remember, I can still kick your ass!" We started rough housing, and I realized that might not be true either!!
