I think our kids are going to look back at these days from the future and wish they had our opportunities and choices to pick from.


There’s no doubt about that, oakhonor. I have my grandpa’s .22 single shot rifle. It was a gift for his twelfth birthday. My stepson is 12 now. I can’t even trust him with a VIDEO GAME, much less a lethal .22 rifle. I’m told my grandpa (son of a sharecropper) took countless pests, rabbits, squirrels, etc. with it. It has a cut-down stock and a peep sight. I would’ve been in hog heaven if I had a .22 when I was 12. (I was 12 in 1988) I was lucky to even have my crappy smoothbore PumpMaster. Nowadays, it’s softair, paintball, or video games. 

My son shot .22 in Boy Scouts. Qualified for the merit badge on the first attempt. (5 dime-size 5-shot groups at 50′ from a bench) Gosh, I’m proud. He’s just been diagnosed with ADHD. (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder) but we’re told that some mild meds will make him right again, and curb his impulsive tendencies. For now, I’ve gotta keep all my airguns locked up whenever I’m not home.
