Any time spent with Dad is always great, that is until he decides to shoot a .50 cal right through your taillight.
When out testing a new rifle, sometimes you get too excited to plan the whole trip out. You may have forgot the important things like safety glasses, hearing protection, the target, the cooler filled with ice and some brews and like this video, a place to rest the gun.
Let’s be honest, they probably didn’t forget any of these things, although I do not see a cooler in the video. Many times more than not, we have all found ourselves using several things for a gun rest.
Here, this 70-year-old father was just out for a weekend with his son shooting guns like the good ol’ days. They found themselves wanting to shoot the .50 cal and what better way to steady the shot than to set out the bipod and flop open the tail gate.
Not all shots are created equal. Some miss, some hit their mark and some find themselves getting a little carried away and taking out their son’s taillight.
It seemed to be all in good nature and at the end of the day no one was hurt and it will forever be another father-son bonding moment.
