|Looking down the barrel of the gun|
Activities involving massive weaponry would make any mom worry. Not me so much. Instead, I worry about the military base surviving Cameron. I think we should have had the administration on the base sign a waiver releasing us from lawsuits as they are bringing Cameron onto their field...
My dad introduced Cameron to real firearms when Cameron was quite young. We wanted to ensure that Cameron, as well as all our boys--even with autism, knew how to use and respect guns. Consequently, my dad has taken the boys to a shooting range. Since then, Cameron has been working on marksmanship randomly, and he loves it. He has decorated his room with the paper from his target practices.
I am not sure where Cameron's interest grew. Perhaps, video games and movies have inspired and enticed him. He has joined the marksmanship club at school, so he continues to learn about the weaponry as he practices.
Cameron has found a hobby he likes, and he is quite good at it. Through the JROTC, he should learn the self discipline necessary to handle the dangers presented. Of course, they don't use live ammunition on campus, but guns still demand to be treated with care and maturity. Cameron can be quite "spirited and enthusiastic" when given an opportunity to be unleashed!
Cameron is thriving on it all!
