    My 23 year old son is now and probably would have outshot his Grandpa as well. I got close to dad but for not shooting a shotgun from pheasant season till dove season, he would shoot a limit of doves (opening day) in 15 shells and I retrieved lots of downed doves and pheasants as we did not have a dog when I was too young to shoot. His military records showed he was an expert marksman and ranked 3 out his basic training class.

    My Dad has passed, but he was a fine shot with a rifle. He shot a lot of deer that were on the run. He never did enjoy bird hunting. I'm pretty sure I am the best shotgun shooter in my family. My sons both scared me a bit with some days that were pretty epic, but overall, I am sure I can come out on top in a friendly competition.

    Ask away. Not even in the same league as the best...but I don’t come from a family full of great marksmen. Repetition (practice) creates success and I’m the only person in my clan that does it with any consistency. I wish I had a dad or grandad that took me hunting all the time. I didn’t. The legacy, if there is any, starts with me. :yes

    Same, I’m pretty handy with a rifle myself but my old man was something else. He had a bond with his 700 that was incredible. His ability to hold & fundamentals were incredible. I’ve shot alongside legit professionals that didn’t have his ability. However you give him a shotgun and he couldn’t water swat a honker at 10yards :dv:reader it never made sense to me...
