Reply To: First thing you ever shot.
7 mag, with my dad
We had hunted all day and didn’t get anything. I had been bugging him a long time about shooting his gun.
I was something like 12 13 years old.
The parking area had these rails to stop people from driving off into the pathways and that rifle was heavy so dad had me prop it on the rail. I sat down and dad stood behind me and held on to the rifle
When I pulled the trigger it knocked me flat on my back right between dad’s legs…. of course on my way through his legs I racked him with the top of my head.
Both of us came home in some pain swearing never again.
I have not shot a 7 since and don’t think I ever WILL my God talk about being kicked like a mule..
