My Son And His New Viper
« on: May 22, 2010, 03:43:02 AM »
Someone asked me to post a picture of my son with his new (To him) Viper. I bought this from Paul in the clasefied and had Ed do a tune on her before it came to me. Great little rifle. It gas the CDT trigger so my sons first experience with a springer is going to spoil him. He has already shot a hand full of pellets through it this morning and came in for more. He had me adjust his sights to the left for him. His is shooting at a peach can at 50 yards and hitting it. After he gets it broke in and shoots a couple hundred rounds through it, I think he is going to go from loving it to LOVING it.

Nice story, ShadowShot.

Reminds me of my Dad starting my addiction with firearms and hunting when I was your son's age.

My goodness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer…
