In Brownstown.

Thinking of taking my daughter shooting, kids between 10-18 shoot free on Saturdays.

I need to borrow a 22lr rifle/carbine though. I'm not sure she's ready for a Semi auto pistol, even my 22lr . I think rifle would be a better 1st time shoot

Man, Eastpointe to Brownstown for a shoot because it's free for kids? Isn't there something by you that'd be break even when you count gas money?

How olds you're daughter? I'd let her go with the .22 pistol. Just load 1 at a time in the mag. till your sure she can handle it. Hey, ya never know. She might be a natural.

Only range near Eastpointe that allows controlled rapid fire is Peter's and they wont let kids shoot... At least they didn't last time I asked.

If I cant Double tap I prefer not to go...

I don't know Double Actions policy on kids shooting, but its expensive as well, but thats still a 20+ minute drive, Brownstown/Taylor is only 35-40 minutes and range time is cheaper

Called around... Lots of different policies at ranges..
.
My Daughter is 10.

Double Action states you have to be 18 to handle a Handgun in MI, but they'd rent a 22lr rifle for $25/hour(or half hour depending on how busy) + ammo and that includes the lane fee, plus they wouldnt charge me extra for being on the lane

Peter's says Kids can shoot, but needs to be 12yrs old and have hunters safety card...

Brown bear says Hunters Safety card required too...

So looks like Wolverine is my only indoor option. I dont think exposing her to "The Pit" in Lapeer would be a good idea.

I didnt notice, I was in there for a full auto shoot a couple of weeks ago.

Wolverine is the best range around I think. A little older and no heat but it's just a range. I don't need the best of the best. Plus they are the cheapest around with no wait.

I'm thinking of joining the Wayne County Sportsmans Club. I think they are very family oriented if you wanted to check them out DK.

I ended up going to the gun show down in Monroe today. It's a good show but they did not have anything I was looking for.

She stopped with the glue. She must have good self control.

Yeah, it used to be the place to go about 10 years ago for gun shows but now they are just junk. I find it's hard to find good deals at the shows even. I went looking for some magazines and did not find any. I'll only deal with Magnum Force in Monroe for my guns though. Unless they don't have it or can't get it. They've always been more than fair to me.

Yeah back 20 yrs ago it was the place to go with the family. I remember Dad taking the family. Back then they charged per person not the car load and they use to have the cinamen donuts they made there... that use to ride up that moving ramp... they were good. I still remember looking forward to nothing but that...

Terry (Magnum Force) Stopped doing the GTC about 10 or 15 years ago. Not only is it a crap show, but the people who run it are wads, which is why it's a crap show. We used to hate setting up in that place.

good call on Royal Oak Bike Night - what a fucking waste that is on Wednesday and Thursday.. Royal Oak in general is a fucking waste.. with their lack of parking, their parking enforcers, their "hip" bar scene or whatever.. you can keep that shit.. i'd rather go to the batting cages and hit the fast pitch cage to have hard balls fired at my nuts..

The bike night thing in general is VERY lame to me and RO is the epitome of that, bunch of squids with flipflops, tanktops and extended swingarm sportbikes. (insert puzzeled look here)

I hate trendy as well and again RO is THE trendiest (puke).

I can't believe they moved Pontiacs Arts beats and eats to RO, where they gonna park?, it will be a huge clusterfuck. Not to mention screwing the city of Pontiac out of the little bit of revenue that shithole had.

trendy is stupid.. pontiac is another lame spot with their stupid clubs.. i went one time because a bunch of hot chicks wanted me to go and it was such a joke.. went to some club seven or something.. so many upstarts made me want to puke.. the plastic people were out in force that night..

Hell, most of us are now.


I told her if the teacher didn't handle the problem in a timely manner(it happened a few days in a row) to "bop him in the beak" and if that didnt work to kick'm in the balls... He'll get the message and I wouldn't punish her if she got in trouble for it. I have no clue where she got the glue idea, that's just not right. LoL I still had to laugh.

If the schools not going to handle the problem then I believe she's got a right to defend herself... force on force. Hell one kid early on in the school year, like the 1st week of class, pushed her down, hit her and said he was coming over to kill her dog... ( I threw these wannabee 10yr old thugs out of my yard this summer for making sexual gestures and discussions)

Tell the teacher, and the school, they either handle it or your daughter has the right to defend herself. Document it, and when it happens again pay a visit to the school board.

for whatever reason they've targeted her to pick on, probably because she's easily upset... Hopefully she toughens up some over the summer, Next year she'll be in a different district. Gotta move anyways.

oh man good luck with that.. at one point i was getting prank voice mails from little punks saying mr. mp is it ok if we take your daughter out we are going to make out at the movies, etc. etc. little punks.. i could have called their parents and found out their parents are the reason our society is so fucked up and they don't give a fuck what little johnny does or i could have handled it different.. so i handled it different.. i told my daughter you tell those little fucking punks to quit calling here with their bullshit or you will never go out anywhere ever again.. phone calls stopped..

...this is why I don't have or want kids. People would end up dead and I would be in jail. I wouldn't have any problem dealing with my own kid(s), my problem would be dealing with other peoples' kids...and their parents. People just don't have any sense anymore.

Wasn't aware that they moved Arts, Beats, and Eats.

Not a fan of either RO or Pontiac, but at least Pontiac doesn't make me want to bungie jump by my testicles.

Only bike night I do is Stingers. It's actually decent people just hanging out bullshitting.

I wasn't either. I may try it once more... MAYBE... if I'm off work... MAYBE.... but I swore it off 2 years ago...

And RZ... setup a ride to Stringers... its been some time since I was there... I'll join ya if I'm not working.

17 now.. she was about 14 when that shit happened.. it stopped real quick.. and i didn't have to shoot anyone either.. now i got the second one coming up and she is 13 so let the games begin (again).. its impossible to deal with the parents cuz they really don't give a fuck and their little baby could never do any wrong.. so put the problem back into the kids hands and let them sort it out.. done and done..

Stingers bike night is every Thursday night during the summer. Will definitely have to round up the troops for one. Think they have specials during the weekend too if you're on a bike.

LoL Mud...exactly "Little Timmy is an aaaaaaangel." Hell with that.

I finally made it to Brownstown, was a good time at the range... I got to try out a new toy and yes she shot it too... I think thats better suited for outdoors though it was too loud for her indoors.

Nice man. I need to head to Wolverine soon. It's been a few weeks and I need to test fire my 9mm after installing a new ejector.
