    June 18th, I took my 4.5 year old to the range for the first time. Quote,"THIS IS AWESOME, THIS IS AWESOME, THIS IS SOOOO AWESOME!!!" and " I WANT TO SHOOT AGAIN, MAY I SHOOT AGAIN, LET ME SHOOT AGAIN!!!" All caps 'cause he was loud.

    My first firearms safety lesson came at the age of 5, from my grandfather. I pointed a toy pistol at him, and in the one and only time I ever heard him raise his voice (he was a huge man - he never had a need to get loud) he proceeded to instruct me on the basics of firearm safety.

    He was also the guy who helped me make toy wooden guns and crossbows, thus completing the circle of life.

    even after we were starting, another counselor started a potato sack race behind our targets. when i asked her to move, she said "it's alright, the targets are blocking us"

    i'm actually really glad i did this today, because otherwise, the kids would have never gotten any safety instruction with weapons.

    over all the day turned out fine, nobody got hurt or shot, the single hassidic women got some eye candy (me, the hassidic badboy of west county) and the kids did start hitting the targets with accuracy and consistancy.

    so yes, to any parents out there, 10 years old is more than old enough to start shooting air rifles and bows. plus, they will carry the safety lessons with them for life.
    This is what happens to a community that exports all of its gun nuts to the holy land. Nothing makes me more nervous than Woody Allen with an Autoshot.

    We have had a rule in my house since KK could walk: never point anything that even looks like a gun at a person. You never know what you might have in your hands.

    I got rid of all of my guns when he was born.

I also had walked up to her and did it execution style. After that, I never felt tempted to shoot another person again.

    So yeah... supervised use of weapons at that age is a good idea :) Because kids will be kids (dumb).
    i guess i'm as sick as you are, because that's fucking hilarious.

    i don't know how i'd handle it if my son did something like that to my daughter. it'd be hard to trust a kid who did something like that with any sharp objects... damien, come out to play-ay.

    Thinking about this, thread last night. Years and years ago, before Dunblane, guns for certain purposes (sports shooting etc.) were legal in the UK. My friend's dad was into shooting and we knew he had guns under lock and key. He taught his kids *very* vigorously about gun safety...

    My brother was over playing with their youngest (they were in the same grade in school, maybe 11 or 12 years old) and he was on the phone to me asking about getting picked up for dinner. Suddenly he drops the phone and starts screaming and his mate picks it up..."I just shot your brother in the head, but don't tell your mum..."

    No ****.

    So, I am of course screaming for my mum at this point (I was 15 or 16 I guess). She races over there fearing the worst, but it turns out it was a BB gun. Thank ****. They'd been shooting cans and gone out for soda or ice cream or something. Got back to the kids house, and assuming it's unloaded, my brother's mate grabs it, points it and pulls the trigger.

    Thankfully the pellet hit him at the hair line, flattened on his skull and slid under his scalp. The X-rays look like it's *in* his head, but a couple of different angles and they figured it out. Fished it out with forceps under local anesthetic.

    Needless-to-say my brother didn't get to play at this friends' again. And from what i hear the kid received a hiding to whip all hidings.

    I shot my sister with a bb gun at very far range on accident. I didn't notice that she had moved from the swings to behind my target.

    My grandma took the weapon and started pumping it. I looked at her and she said "You better start running." I never even considered shooting it at anyone again.

    Dunblane to Memphis?

    With "very vigorous" (and therefore assuming ongoing) safety training, one must assume he shot your brother on purpose.
