Daddy Daughter Range Day

Written by: Terrance Gammage

 Hello, Ladies and Gentlemen! Good Morning, Good Evening and Good Night to you wherever you are in the world! Today I am sooooo excited to tell you guys about such an amazing day I recently had with my oldest child. The day was long anticipated and yet it felt like it was over so quickly.  My daughter’s name is Londyn. She is such a vibrant, witty and compassionate young lady. At only 9 years of age, she’s gifted and has the mental wherewithal of a 14 or 15 year old. So bright! Being that I’m a NRA Firearms Instructor, my children have been exposed to being around firearms safely since each of them were born. Londyn often would come into Daddy's Man Cave and do minimal tasks; refill ammo boxes, organize cleaning rods or even empty rounds from standing magazines. She’s been “working” with daddy since she was about 4 or 5 years old. I could have taken her to the gun range sooner, but I told her years ago that she couldn’t go until she was 9 years old and committed that age to memory! Year after year, she grew more and more comfortable and I began to allow her to dry fire empty firearms with me. During this time, her love for firearms and the safety of them continue to flourish! We would dry fire together at least once a week. Her skillset grew and the 6, 7 and then 8 year old, finally turned 9 and it was go time!

One night in late November, the night before our range trip, Londyn asked me about the Brownells Premium Electronic Ear Muffs (she just called them Electronic Headphones). I told her, “Daddy doesn’t allow people to use these. These are special and they’re meant for only the Instructor or someone who desires to be an Instructor.” Londyn looked up and me with one hand still in my range bag and the other on the headphones and said, “But if you’re an Instructor and I know what you know... doesn’t that make me at least an Instructor in that’s just isn’t teaching people?” I had not quick comeback. I simply stated, “Londyn, put my headphones down and those over there are yours.” lol. Needless to say she wore my Brownells Premium Electronic Ear Muffs and she absolutely loved them.  I’ve since put together a Youtube video documenting our time. She even made fun of me throughout the making note of how many times I would keep mentioning the name “Brownells”. It was as if she worked for someone and was hired to keep track of my “Brownells'' comments. It’s not my fault that “Brownells” has everyone one could ask for on their well laid out website. Visit “Brownells'' at and browse through the more than robust selections. Also, if you would like to see the full video of Daddy and Daughter Range Day, follow this link:  Until next time, thank you so much for stopping by and spending some time with me. I hope you’ve heard my heart on how proud I am of my baby girl and I’m most excited about the possibility of you stopping and watching the video as well.
