What is it about guns that draws in boys? I’m not a big gun enthusiast and I’ll be honest, I almost cancelled my appointment to visit Stoddard’s Range & Guns. It was hump day of a long week with an even longer week ahead, plus what was I doing taking my boys to shoot gun. Thank goodness I felt obligated or I would have missed one of my favorite field trips. Here’s why.
Stoddard’s Range & Guns feels a little like walking onto the set of a History Channel show. Upon arriving at Stoddard’s Range & Guns, we were warmly greeted by owners Michael Halbreich and Ken Baye. Michael is a gun enthusiast who can tell you a story about every gun in the case, while Ken fills in the blanks and adds a laugh that makes you smile. In between are co-workers, brought into the scene when specific expertise is required.
Eventually the older boys and I got around to shooting on two of the 12, 75-foot-long rifle-rated lanes, but not before we took a Hollywood Tour of Guns.
