In Indiana a kid has to have the hunters ed course before he/she can get a hunting license. The State Conservation Officers condut the class with the help of a bunch of fellows that teach 4-H Shooting Sports. Most of the kids will continue after the CO's class to a few years of 4-H shooting sports. My work supervisor and another good friend are 4-H Shooting Sports instructors, and have been for 20 years or more.

Eds gun shop in Vass.

 

 

My kids can shoot anytime they want to, all they have to do is ask. 22s for now.

 

We have already had the discussion on "new GTs". I found that buying her something nicer and more expensive than yours or at least sprakles helps when she starts counting all the GTs I already have. :D

Believe it or not, my 1st shooting experience came from 4H camp.  Dad never owned a gun in my lifetime.  He has Grandpa's old shotgun now, but just as a keepsake.  I am to get it soon.  Dad wants me to have it, as I'm the only one who likes guns in the family, and the only one he trusts to keep it, which I will till time to pass it to my Grandson if he's so inclined.  

  4H gave shooting lessons, and I loved it.  I was around 9 or 10 at the time.  Was an old Stevens single shot 22 bolt action.  What they taught me stuck pretty well.

 

My first gun was also a .22 single shot.  I was taught to shoot when I was 5.  Of course mom kept the gun until I was 10 or so, then I could take it, if I was by myself, and go into the fields near my home and shoot rabbits, etc.

 

I worry about the growing situation with gun control.  When the economy truly tanks, and it will if politicians keep spending, then we will have situations like Greece all across the country.  When the Rodney King riots erupted in LA, the police by and large just stood by and let things happen... individuals protected themselves with their own firearms... if Obama, Feinstein, et al get their way, we won't have anything to defend ourselves with when things fall apart...

 

Ooops, time to get down from the soap box again.

She'll love the SP101.  I have an SP101 Stainless with the 3 inch barrel and love the way it shoots.  It's kind of a hand full with .357 rounds for my wife to handle but she has her own .38 Special so she leaves it alone.  I also took her to a gun store so she could see how different guns felt in her hand and how much they weighed etc.  She choose a Taurus Mod. 85 with 3 inch barrel.  The SP 101 shoots great with defensive .357 rounds and is easily concealable.  

 

Love to see someone who teaches their children about firearms and how to respect and use them.  Most kids who wind up having an accident with them are just curious and sneak them out to investigate.  All my children started shooting when around 10 years old and I never have worried about them misusing one.  So, congratulations to the wife and I hope she has many good times tearing paper with it.

Smitty, please, please don't get off that soap box, we need to be heard.

Thanks for your kind words.  I thank God for the freedom and rights He has granted us, and agonize as I see self-serving people take them from us...

 

I've been to East Germany and Czechosovakia.  I've also seen the effects of "Socialism Lite" in Great Britain, Germany, France, and Korea.  Our politicians have prostituted the Treasury for the benefit of people who can't comprehend, or perhaps don't care, that the government that encourages you to depend on it for everything can also take all that away... It's already happening in Europe... retirees have had their pensions and benefits cut back... truly scary but I still hear the muffled words "It won't happen here" coming from people with their head buried in the sand...

 

Steve
