One of my favorite memories of my dad is when he took me hunting for the first time. We wer on top a hill and dad told me to the gun( dont remember what kind) to my shoulder and squeeze the trigger when he counted to three. I must have been about 8 years old best i can remember. So he started counting. One, two and after 3 he said squeeze the trigger.So i did. And found myself at the bottom of the hill. He looked at me and said " thats how not to hold a gun now ill show you the right way" We laughed so hard and lausghed about it for days after. My shoulder was sore but it didnt matter we were together had fun and a good laugh. Memories i will never forget.
