A senior citizen in Ohio has opened a BB-gun range, specifically targeted towards getting kids into shooting.
Ted Dowdell decided to turn the barn next to his home into a free shooting range for children.
“The kids don’t get a chance to shoot a BB these days,” Dowdell said.
As you might have guessed, I’m all in favor of this. I whiled away countless hours blasting at soda cans, tin cans, magazine covers, and a whole host of improvised targets with my BB gun when I was a kid. It was fun, safe, and served as a gateway into the shooting sports for me.
Of course, I didn’t need a “BB gun range”, because the acre behind the house served quite adequately in that regard. That being said, I’m in favor of anything that introduces more youngsters to shooting.
