Sharp Shooter

Grady and I are so alike in many ways.  One of those is that we both write with our right hands, but swing left-handed. However, Grady is left eye dominant.  When we figured this out, we began to try to get him to shoot his toy guns with his left index finger so as to have him easily aim with his left eye later.  He has adamantly argued that he wants to shoot right handed.

After getting dental work done last week, Grady got to shoot guns at Mema Donna’s house as a reward.  The plan was to blow up some gallon water jugs with a shotgun.  After they got out the cowboy guns and targets, Papa Larry asked Greg if Grady could shoot Mema’s .38 Ruger revolver.  Grady has had plenty of experience with a .22 pistol, shooting varmints trapped under Mema Francie’s trailer (skunks and the like). Greg said yes so Papa Larry loaded it up (he downloads the bullets so they don’t kick as hard).  Grady proceeded to shoot right handed, therefore closing his right eye and laying his head over to aim.   He hit 13 of 15 targets.  After targets, he drilled some more holes in the gallon water jug.  Papa Larry was so impressed (and Mema Donna, and Greg)!  Papa Larry and Greg then shot the water bottles with the shotgun and blew them up.

I guess I’ll lay off trying to get him to shoot left handed!
