On Sunday, pop star Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, shared an adorable photo of their 3-year-old son Jameson while the pair shot clay targets.
The former motocross racer is passionate about shooting and has shared one of his favorite hobbies with his children. Hart’s photo shows a table full of shotguns, ammo, and clay pigeons. Additionally, Jameson’s .22 rifle sits at the end of the table beside him.
Hart’s son looks a bit bored as he amusingly rests his elbows on the table holding his face in his hands. His dad said Jameson wasn’t happy since he couldn’t “knock down some birds.” But, Hart said his son loves shooting anyways.
“Knocking down some clay Today!!! Jamo pissed he can’t knock down some birds w/ his .22 . But he loves shooting!!! 🤣🤣. #2A,” Hart wrote on Instagram.
The Hart family has spent a lot of time outdoors this year during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to target shooting, Hart has passed down some other hobbies to his kids. In recent months, he’s posted numerous pictures of his children learning to shoot, fish, and even ride dirt bikes like their dad.
He’s made sure to teach his children proper firearm etiquette along with gun safety measures. However, not everyone is happy with Hart for teaching his children how to shoot at such a young age.
Hart Took Criticism Online for Teaching Kids How To Shoot
In October, Hart faced backlash on social media for teaching his children how to use firearms. Numerous users criticized him following photos and videos he posted showing his kids learning to shoot guns.
The posts showed Hart teaching Jameson, 3, and his daughter Willow, 9, how to properly shoot. He’s also made sure to teach them safety measures, which is highlighted in some of his posts. Yet, many online commented that his kids shouldn’t be around guns at such a young age. He was defiant though and is proud of his children’s progress with their firearms.
“Fun morning shooting w/ my kids! Willz is getting seriously good w/ the rifle and handling of a firearm. And jamo absolutely loves shooting! And the rate that he is processing the handling of them, he makes me proud. I’m a firm believer in teaching my kids to shoot, but more importantly, handle a fire arm. No better sound than the bullet of your kids gun plucking a steel target at 30 yards 🤘🏼🤘🏼. Have a great weekend, everyone. #IfYourDontLikeItScrollOn #PokeTheBear,” Hart captioned his Instagram post.
